Studio One is a shop dedicated to good design with a sense of theatre. Our aim is to provide an enticing range of stylish accessories for your home and exciting gifts to give to others – or yourself.
Set in a series of basements in the heart of Georgian Edinburgh, each room tells its own story. Our Gallery Collection has unusual one-off pieces – perfect for that special occasion. We have great treats for girls – from handcrafted jewellery to luxurious bath products and lots of inspiring ideas for men’s gifts too. In our toy section you will find a fantastic range of wooden toys and pocket money goodies. We also have great collections for dining and living – something for every room in your home.
Studio One is situated in Edinburgh’s vibrant West End. Here you will find an eclectic mix of clothes boutiques, shoe shops, beauty salons and hairdressers as well as relaxing bars and a wide choice of restaurants to revive you after a hard day’s shopping.
Studio one was founded in 1966 by John Johnson. Bored by the humdrum shops of the era, John decided to create a launch pad for his own products, handmade studio pottery and glass and contemporary Scandinavian design. Starting from a single basement Studio One gradually took over neighbouring spaces to form a unique shop. Over the years the product range has constantly changed and evolved but the one constant has always been good design and good value.
Studio One Furniture soon outgrew its space and moved to Morningside. In 1982 the card section split off in the form of Paper Tiger – trading from its stores in Stafford Street and Lothian Road it is the perfect place to find a special card and stylish gift-wrap. The three businesses continue to be run as a family of shops.
