ANTIQUE INNOVATION at


Agapanthus Interiors


Stockport’s Hillgate and Underbank are fast becoming hotspots


for new and inspiring


independent retail. If you pay a visit to Zoë and Tom at Agapanthus Interiors you will experience firsthand the dynamic drive and forward-thinking attitude of this area, in their four-floor trove of antiquarian delights.


Agapanthus Interiors is housed in a high, slender Victorian terrace, originally built for the purpose of being a shop in 1901. It perches high on top of a hill, surrounded by old mills and factories that remind you of Stockport’s former industrial glory. A 40’s butchers awning still stretches out onto the pavement, framing a huge window display of well-worn eccentricities. The shop inside is made up of bare red brick walls and creaking staircases. Original floorboards run throughout, warmed by cast iron wood burning stoves, whilst spindled bannisters and narrow doorways give the feeling of being in a Dickensian novel.


Arriving through the front door is like entering a charming French Brocante. The high ceilings are seemingly lowered, by a canopy of chandeliers and pendants of all different shapes, colours and sizes. Styles range from antique to mid-century, procured by a tasteful eye and restored to former glory by hands of equal temperament.


Zoë’s keen attention to detail and natural eye for colour and form are ostensibly present from floor to floor. Fixtures and furnishings of embellished character make up homely scenes from room to room – furnishings finished lovingly with silks and fabrics, ornaments and curios. This is not just another antique store.
