TANDEM is an independent store. We opened our doors in April 2017 after a major refurbishment. Having done the majority of the building and decorating works ourselves, we have revealed some of the original features to create a unique and diverse space. We believe the shop once housed a bicycle shop, hence the name TANDEM.
We hope a to bring a bit of variety to the high street in Meanwood offering a welcoming and cosy space for people to enjoy. Our aim is to promote local and independent artists, designers and suppliers. We also offer tasty home-cooked food and a friendly welcome. We hope to develop and evolve the Tandem brand through our shared interest in food, design, music and community.
How we began
Who we are
We're Hannah and Hatty. We both have a background in design and have a particular love of interior design! We live in Meanwood and we've opened a shop/cafe that we would want to go to (we hope you will too) and honestly, we're loving it - come see us!
Tandem was born from a love of creativity and a passion of working ‘in tandem’ with other artists, designers and makers. Each month we showcase an established or emerging artist providing a unique platform for their work to be seen throughout the month. We open each exhibition with a preview evening, accompanied by a live band. Everyone is welcome.
The shop combines mid-century British and French rescued items with an eclectic mix of soft furnishings and gift items. You could describe our look as ‘modern bohemian’.
Please get in touch if you are interested in exhibiting or showcasing your wares in Tandem.
