Amongst the manufacturers whose furnishings are curated by Aria, one can find a selection of high-end European companies such as Fritze Hanzen, Kartell, Artemide, in addition to other brands such as Foscarini, Alessi and Flos. Adding to its vast selection of high-quality home decor, Aria stocks one-of-a-kind hand-selected vintage pieces sourced from around the globe.

As an extra bonus, Aria has an in-house café where shoppers can ponder and relax in the store’s incredible setting.
Everything about Aria, including the architecture of the building itself, is somewhat charming and exciting. The store is spread out over the atmospheric Barnsbury Hall’s two floors, and gives life to the gorgeous local hall which was built in the 1850s. The building’s original features work beautifully with the contemporary vibe of furniture and homeware which Aria provides. The spacious open hall is the perfect backdrop for the incredible inventory: from colorful desk lamps, to oddly shaped chairs, and a myriad other home decor gadgets.
Recently, Aria has developed its online store, a convenient way to go through an array of objects and shop by brand or category. With improved usability, the website offers in-depth information about the available products and designers. For an even more complete shopping experience, one also has access to insight and inspirations on the latests interior decor and design trends through Aria’s online journal. What more can one ask for? Aria really does have it all.
