I have a gorgeous new find for you today. Absolute heaven. I walked through the door and inwardly squealed – does anyone else do that?!
Fabrique is a Swedish stone oven bakery newly opened just two weeks ago originating from Stockholm, specialising in sourdough breads and other traditional Swedish delights. Everything here is lovingly baked by hand using traditional methods to give their customers insight into what “real bread” should taste like when allowed to develop in its own time, away from accelerated methods used by supermarkets.
The bakery is subtly tucked away inside a railway arch just yards from Hoxton station (it’s sign-posted directly outside the station at the back of the Geffrye Museum). Once inside, you’re hit with the smell of warm, sweet spices-cinnamon and cardamom and of course the sourdough loaves of which an abundance awaits to greet you on display.
The overall space has a light and airy feel in true Swedish fashion. It’s furnished deliberately sparsely making a feature from the industrial surroundings of exposed brick walls, corrugated iron roofing and concrete flooring. I loved the delicate little touches that softened the hard, industrial edge too-soft pink and lilac plates and cut glass beakers. Beautiful. It’s all about the bread here, and hot damn it’s good. Love the Fabrique look as much as I do? I’ve pulled together four items to inspire you to recreate your own industrial bakery in the kitchen. Look for organic materials-iron, steel and untreated wood and combine with soft pinks, charcoal grey and bright white. It’s fresh, on trend and creates a statement without clutter and fuss.
