It seems that Nicole Farhi has expanded in the grand tradition of all designers who get restless (and probably have investors breathing down their back). Her 202 shop in Chelsea is a cafe/brasserie cum home and lifestyle store featuring a rich array of clothing and textiles, ceramics, furniture, accessories and other housewares... and, a yummy British brunch to boot.
The good stuff is the glassware and ceramics, which remind us of Alex Marshall. Favorites include her thick glass decanters and white coffee cups and dishes. Prices are upmarket but not unreasonable. The selection is pretty eclectic, with many antiques and a distinctly British ambiance.
