We sell beautiful, iconic, authentic, future-proof furniture. We don't do fashionable, we don’t do this season’s look, we do forever fabulous.

Why we’re different comes down to something simple; we care. Here at Nest, we aren’t a big corporate machine.

We genuinely love what we sell and endeavour to be a destination for design and a pedestal and celebration of talent, creativeness and distinction. We are proud that Nest.co.uk is a place we want to (and do) shop at ourselves.

We understand you because we are you. We make our own wish lists and, just like you, want to fill our homes with the kind of comfort, sentiment and personality that we’ll want to hold on to forever. In the same way that going to a Michelin star restaurant is much more than just eating, our products are more than just places to sit at, sleep in or put things on.

We find beauty you can sit on, sculptures you can eat at and investments you can relax on. Our chairs aren’t just chairs, they’re the chairs you’ve always wanted, they are an experience, memorable and destined to be heirlooms.

And so, we make sure our service is as good as our products. We can do this because we are a small (but perfectly formed) independent. Whether it’s our carefully thought-out website or our expert sales and customer service team, we have a personal, friendly service that you would struggle to find anywhere else.
