The Small Homeware Brands We Love

It’s always a joy to discover a new brand – and when it comes to your home, browsing smaller, independent names is a sure-fire way to find something your friends don’t already have. Even better, you’ll be supporting a small business at a time when they really need it. Here are some of the names to know…

Village London Co

Using offcuts from some of the world’s most premium fabric houses, including Veere Grenney and Christopher Farr, sewing expert Fabia Horsley creates beautifully made cushions with ruffle and fringe trims.

Society Of Wanderes

As the name suggests, this brand is inspired by the travels of its founder, Briony Delves. Living and designing her nostalgic linen collection in Torquay, on Australia’s surf coast, she takes her cues from the interior styles of the 60s and 70s, resulting in beautifully made, French flax linen pieces. From bold cushions to retro bed sheets, the eclectic colour combinations are completely original.


Petri Prints

This small, family-run wall art business offers bespoke commissions and made-to-order reprint collections inspired primarily by science, food and nature. Founded by couple Rosie and Ant Saunt, the duo aims to provide a high-quality, personalised service for people looking to fill their walls with the beautiful, rare or alternative artwork.


Katy Takla 

For a joyful interiors update, Katy Takla has you covered. Already boasting an influential fan base on Instagram, Katy makes an exclusive range of cushions using designer remnants and end-of-roll fabrics. With just a handful of each design available, you’ll need to be quick, so sign up to her mailing list to know when each new drop lands. She also takes bespoke commissions if you have a specific colour, size or pattern in mind.  


Fenella Designs 

For an unusual, eye-catching range of lampshades, head over to Fenella Design. All her lampshades are hand-crafted in North Yorkshire using materials which are often sourced from multiple places around the world. From wicker to ikat, marble to scallop, every style ticks the style box, – although, for us, the standout has to be the curvy lines of the daisy-shaped shade.  


Charlotte Storrs 

A Dutch potter based near Oxford, Charlotte Storrs is committed to working on the potter's wheel, making functional stoneware, pots, plates, bowls, all of which can be used on a daily basis. Working with rustic clay and a white glaze for a simple, non-fussy appearance, she likes to incorporate akebia quinata vine from Japan in her work, too.


Casa Cubista 

Founded in the Portuguese coastal town of Olhão, Casa Cubista works with a group of talented artisans from around the country to create bold, colourful pieces. The brand’s founders, David Pimental and Arren Williams, share a passion for craft and heritage, as well as a love for taking something traditional and showing it in a contemporary setting to give it a new lease of life.


Anna + Nina

This Amsterdam-based label knows exactly what we want before we even know we want it. From Scandi-inspired candlesticks perfect for a mantelpiece to handprinted ceramics, this is an up-and-coming label to know about.


Alice Palmer 

Bored by the lack of options in the lampshade market, Alice Palmer decided to set about making her own. Handmade by Alice herself in London, her pieces are inspired by her love of traditional British homes, West Indian villas and Andalusian haciendas. Soft and pretty, each shade is guaranteed to add colour, texture and pattern to any interior.
