Welcome to Shop Small Saturday, a feature where we celebrate our community of independent boutiques, from Bath to Berlin.
Situated in the North East seaside town of Saltburn-on-Sea is independent homeware boutique, Lillian Daph.
Discovering her love of interiors while studying textiles, founder Christina set up shop with her husband fresh out of university. “Just as I was finishing up my degree, an old post office became vacant in Saltburn, a town in which I had always dreamed of opening an interiors store,” Christina explains. “We got the keys and 6 weeks later - with lots of graft - we were open.”
Lillian Daph supplies an eclectic mix of homewares and lifestyle for all the family. From design-led sculptural lighting from Umage or Zuvier, to soft furnishings from Madam Stoltz and Studio Loco, and kids toy room essentials from Wigiwama or Ila Y Ela, Lillian Daph aim to bring together brands they love and showcase them to their little chunk of the country.
Join us as we chatted to Christina about Lillian and Daphne, the pooches that inspired the boutique’s name, and what a typical Saturday in store looks like.
