Behind a smart black shopfront in Bloomsbury lies a small, colorful home decor shop brimming with an eclectic mix that draws on British tradition with a modern twist. ‘Good things for the home’ is how Ben Pentreath and Bridie Hall describe their emporium, that they opened together in November 2008, on Ben's birthday. Originally named Ben Pentreath Ltd, it was renamed Pentreath and Hall in 2013. Together they bring a creative dynamic to the shop, designing their own line to sit alongside vintage pieces and notable brands such as Peter Hone, Astier de Villatte, and John Derian. The result is a rich mix of beautiful, unusual and decorative home goods.

Good things for the home.
