Global Brand Karaca Opens First Homeware Store In The UK

Offering two floors of high quality homewares, global brand Karaca has opened the doors to its first ever UK store in the Islington Square retail development, a curated space spanning 2,641sq ft. A family-run business founded in Türkiye in 1973, Karaca’s offering includes over 1,000 design-led products ranging from everyday living to luxury pieces for the home. 

Speaking at the opening on 23 November, Karaca’s UK managing director, Cihangir Çetintırnak, told attendees: “Today is an exciting day as we celebrate the opening of our first UK store in Islington, one of London’s most dynamic retail destinations. Seeing the store come to life as we officially open to the public is a high point for us, as we look to continue the company’s global expansion here in the UK, both online and as a bricks-and-mortar retailer.”

Cihangir Çetintırnak presided over the ribbon cutting ceremony alongside the consul general of the Turkish Consulate General in London, Bekir Utku Atahan, alongside the chief commercial counsellor for the Turkish Embassy in London, Murat Özsoy, the TRNC representative Office’s London Consul, Namık Cafer, Karaca board members Selin Kiper and Hüseyin Karaca, chief customer officer Erkut Baloğlu, and Ahmet Rıfat Ökçün. 

Displayed on reclaimed wooden pallets in the new London store, Karaca’s collections span gifting and home accessories, tableware, cookware, bedding, and small appliances including Karaca’s latest Christmas ranges.

Additionally, designer Hussein Chalayan’s limited edition sculptural tableware collection, crafted from ground pearl features, following its successful UK launch at Design London in September. 

With sights set on growth, Karaca currently operates from over 375 dedicated stores and more than 1,100 concessions, as well as its online shopping channels, across three continents. The majority of stores outside of Türkiye are based in Europe.
