Resident Store

About Resident Store

With a background in marketing and communications, founder James Borely started his retail career with a bespoke lighting brand in 2013. Through designing and buying ranges of lamps, James discovered a world of makers, designers and small brands that he felt were unrepresented in his local area. Starting out as a pop-up shop in Brixton, Resident Store flourished online until James found the perfect space in Frome, Somerset. Now based in a Grade II listed building, Resident Store is a curated collection of unusual homewares and lifestyle products from known brands to up and coming designers.

From the founder

"I'm inspired by good, simple, essential design. I take a lot of inspiration from architecture having worked in that industry and this is reflected in a lot of our products. At Resident Store we aim to provide a welcoming and relaxed environment, helped along by Resident dog Howie."
