Angela Reed

An absolute gem of an interiors shop with branches in Saffron Walden and Cambridge. Angela Reed is a family-run business that sells the most gorgeous interiors, gifts and art - don't do any house up without a visit here first.

Any visit to Saffron Walden has to include a mooch around the town’s centrepiece shop – Angela Reed. This treasure trove of calming, chic and on-trend interiors and gifts is an absolute Tardis with 13 showrooms across 5 floors, where you can get lost in homewares heaven for hours.

Angela Reed is a family-run business that has been selling high quality furniture since 1881 and the family clearly has a talent for handpicking the very best home accessories, furniture (both indoors and outdoors) and gifts from around the world, because you’ll want to buy everything! The good news is, it’s not all super high end stuff (although you can get Conran sofas if you like), and across the range the price points are amazing.

The Reeds opened a smaller, but just as beautiful, shop on Cambridge’s Peas Hill in 2017, which always has colourful and fabulous window displays that’ll lure you in. It’s the place to head in town for gorgeous gifts and homewares.

We’ve been massive fans of Angela Reed at Muddy for years thanks to their always pleasing aesthetic – you’ll find pared-back, modern and calming pieces alongside cool and quirky accessories that all go together beautifully. The Saffron Walden store is somewhere that you can easily spend a morning in too, not least because there’s an attractive, light and airy cafe and bakery on the first floor with an outdoor terrace that serves homemade treats and delicious locally-sourced lunches.

Angela Reed is a destination in its own right – a massive Muddy recommendation to go and have a meander around either store – just remember to take your credit card!

Wedding fund

If you’re getting married and haven’t decided on a gift list yet, you’ll be delighted to hear that Angela Reed has a wedding fund service. Your guests can all contribute towards the fund to help you furnish your marital home and then Angela Reed adds 10% to the total.

Interior design service

As you’d expect from a business with a clear eye for design, Angela Reed also offer an interior design service to help you make your house look as irresistible as their showrooms. You can choose to have help from the pros for just one room or your entire house. It goes without saying that they advise on furniture and homewares for your project, but also help with paint choices, carpets and upholstery.
