'Property Of...' Store is Both a Cool Hangout and Retail Establishment

The ‘Property Of…’ store in Amsterdam is kind of like the “inception” of retail establishments. It is actually a store within a cafe, offering its customers both a laid-back coffee shop in which to hang out as well as a place to shop for stylish accessories.

Combinining a cafe culture with a retail twist, the business was founded by designers and cafe owners Richard Chamberlainand and Peter Teo, who began their accessories line back in 2007. Now, the pair have opened their first flagship ‘Property Of…’ store in Amsterdam, which reflects their “store in a cafe” origins, says Retail Design Blog. On offer is a collection of modern accessories—handbags, in particular—in addition to magazines, notebooks and coffee.
