The story of to date…

What a journey it has been! It all began in 2001, when the founder Christian Hawley was taking a year out to travel the world. During this time, he embarked on identifying the prospect of setting up one of the UK’s best interior stores.

It was in Australia he found such inspiration and on his return to England, he decided to visit some of the world’s best furniture fairs from Milan to Paris to source innovative furniture and lighting products.

The first shop was established in 2002 in Sheffield and quickly established itself as a firm favourite with design buyers.

We are now a highly successful independent multi-channel retailer, with a website showcasing over 15,000 products and a beautiful showroom based in Sheffield. Don't forget that we only sell authentic licensed originals - no fakes from us!


We supply premium design direct to architects, interior designers and residential customers.

We represent highly sought-after brands including Arper, Artek, Cassina, Flos, Foscarini, Hay, Muuto, Tom Dixon and Vitra plus many more.
