There is something about Cocoon that is ahead of its time. While the rest of us are working to be more sustainable Cocoon is already there. The store is run by gorgeous Northwesters Karen and Linda who to inspire customers to

“Appreciate the beauty in the old, used, and wonky, to break the rules of matchy matchy. Importantly we want people to question, to buy quality not quantity. We want our customers to feel better when they walk in, to feel relaxed with a smile on their face”.

Cocoon is home to a beautiful mixture of old and new. Added to this they create their own, unique lighting range made out of found items, and a selection of upcycled furniture. There’s a definite focus on industrial style but a wide range of cushions, rugs, linen and artwork softens the overall look.

It’s easy to spend a lot of time in this store. The service is friendly and there’s something beautiful to catch your eye in every corner. Whether you have classic taste, enjoy thrift shopping and vintage styles, or you love an eclectic mix you’ll definitely find something to suit your taste here!
