The shop in Lewes since 1996...

The Laurels is a colourful and independent shop offering a unique blend of items carefully chosen from a selection of innovative and contemporary designers, including Orla Kiely, Marimekko, Ilse Jacobsen, Linum and Camper. Our real-world store is found in the lovely county town of Lewes, East Sussex, set in the South Downs. Lewes boasts some fantastic independent shops, antique emporiums and cafes, so it's well worth a visit and we'd love you to pop in and say hello.
