Design to make you feel fine

Thanks for dropping by. Chirpy is a design shop & workshop space located in Chapel Allerton, Leeds. Please have a look around to find out more about Chirpy & get in touch.

Creative but affordable design

We're an independent lifestyle design store in North Leeds, stocking unique home accessories and goods with personality, character and style, for all ages.

If you're fed up of the big high-street stores, or just bored of mass produced, souless design, we might just be the answer! We’re a friendly bunch and only too happy to help you find something that little bit different for an impressive gift or item for the home.

We're proud to be in Yorkshire too, so we believe in supporting independent local and UK designers and makers. It's little things like this which help to keep crafts and skills alive, while looking after the environment.

We also host arts and craft workshops, led by the local artists and makers who's goodies can be found in the shop. These are held in our cool upstairs space above the store, with a mix of day, evening and Saturday classes. Check out the Workshops page for more info.

Hi, I’m Harriet, pleased to meet you!

I don't know about you, but I've always struggled to find inspiring stylish presents on the high street.

This inspired me to trawl the Yorkshire arts and crafts scene, where I realised that there were so many cool designers, makers and distinctive brands in the UK that didn't have a store outlet in Leeds.

People prefer buying things which are more unique and personal, so I searched high and low for Yorkshire and UK based emerging independent designers and smaller manufacturers, and set about creating a lovely shop full of all those quirky, usually hard-to-find treasures, making it easy to buy presents that really stand out.

Hence Chirpy was born!

Chirpy has also recently expanded upstairs above the store to host arts and craft workshops with gallery space, sign up to the mail shot to keep in the know...
