Bra Bohag: mid century furniture, art and good things
In the heart of the bustling Edinburgh neighbourhood of Easter Road is Bra Bohag, a tiny establishment that has been described as 'without doubt the best retro shop in Scotland'. Run by the hugely knowledgeable and enthusiastic team of Jim and Louice, it's a treasure trove of mid century classic furniture and artefacts sourced from the UK and Scandinavia. The shop regularly stocks pieces by Ercol, G-Plan, Stag and McIntosh as well as more obscure makers from the 50s, 60s and 70s. There is also an interesting selection of art and taxidermy by artists from Edinburgh and beyond. Jim and Louice obviously have a great eye for finds and aim to maintain an eclectic collection. They provide dedicated personal service and a delivery service to the whole of the UK.
Bra Bohag is at 150 Easter Road, Edinburgh. Opening hours are 10-6 Thursday to Saturday, 12 -6 Sundays and by appointment on 07808 808033.
