Karaca, a global homeware company, based in Turkey and operating over 375 dedicated stores and more than 1,100 concessions across three continents, is set to open its first UK store at London’s Islington Square, a mixed-use destination from privately held investment firm Cain International (‘Cain’).
On the 24th of November, Karaca will be opening its first Uk store in Islington Square. The store opening follows the UK launch of the brand’s limited edition tableware collection with the designer Hussein Chalayan at Design London in September. The new 2,641 sq. ft Islington Square store will offer a wide selection of products, including tableware, cookware, bedding, home accessories and small appliances catering for every occasion, from luxury to everyday living.
Located in one of London’s most famous cosmopolitan communities, Cain’s Islington Square offers shopping, dining, leisure, apartments and workspace. Helping to get the site for the brand was Orme Property, who acted on behalf of Cain International, and Experium Properties, who represented the homeware brand.
Cihangir Çetintırnak, Managing Director UK at Karaca, said, “As we look to debut our first store in the UK, we are excited to start our bricks-and-mortar journey in one of London’s most dynamic retail destinations. Having grown our business here online, we are confident that opening in Islington Square is the right next step for our brand’s evolution as we meet our customers in person and offer our world-class homeware in a first-class space.”
Neil Barber, Retail Leasing Director at Cain International, said, “Islington Square is a destination for people seeking brilliant brands in an interesting setting, as well as a space for the community to come together, and we are confident retailers such as Karaca will add to the world-class experience for our guests. That Karaca will open its first UK store in Islington Square is a testament to how attractive a retail destination this is, offering a compelling proposition to brands and consumers alike with its excellent location, compelling enlivenment programme, and all-around premium offering.”
Karaca was founded in 1973 in Turkey and today provides its innovative, design-led products in dining, cooking, small appliances, and home categories, including bathing, bedding, and accessories. Karaca continues to operate with over 375 dedicated stores, online shopping channels and more than 1,100 concessions, spanning three continents, with the majority based in Europe.
