Curated Stories is an independent design concept store located in Aberdeen Scotland. We started out in 2009 with just three brands and have organically grown from there slowly but surely to currently be a proud stockist of more than 250 brands. There’s so much wonderful design out there and we are not really very good at saying NO.
We’ve got two shops; Curated Stories on Claremont Street and Curated Stories Studio (for all creative stuff Feb-Oct and Christmas Shop Oct-Jan) on Chattan Place. We also love interiors and have got our very own interior design studio for that https://www.curatedstoriesinteriors.com
We believe shopping design should be fun but it’s not much fun to walk in from the store doors knowing exactly what you’re going to find. Where’s the element of surprise? Where’s the enjoyment of discovery? Hopefully when shopping with us you will come across many new things as well as some of your favourites. And hopefully on every visit we’ve had time to add something new to our forever growing ranges…
Couple of fun facts:
We don’t have a distribution centre for deliveries. We don’t even have a warehouse for stock. When your order drops through to our inbox we go “Yippee! Look, look! Someone’s bought something!” and then one of us will pick up a basket and go collect your goodies from the shelves before we start wrapping them lovingly ready for the Postie to pick up later in the day. Bare with us! Sometimes it gets a bit busy…
We’re a real shop; bricks, mortar and couple of windows to keep clean. We love seeing customers and with our online store we hope to get to know you through your emails and orders and by sending you little messages along with your orders. You can even phone us if you like and we can talk you through what’s new in the shop this week! Isn’t that nice? No call centres, no automated messages. Just pure enthusiasm for good design!
We don’t have a PR office either. We write all our social media posts ourselves, take all our pictures ourselves, write all the content everywhere ourselves. Because that’s the way we are. We want you to get to know us, recognise our style and kinda become part of our gang. Find us, Curated Stories, on https://www.instagram.com/curatedstories/ or https://www.facebook.com/curatedstories/ (or both as the styles are a bit different)
