My Favourite Indie Homeware Brands


Following on from my last post where I said goodbye to London we have finally bought and moved into our new home in Edinburgh!!! That means I’m on the hunt for indie homeware and that prompted the start of this new series of blog posts…

The plan is to share a list all the indie places I love to try and encourage you to shop small this Christmas and beyond. Each business will be independent but I’ll also focus on places that are handmade and/or eco conscious.

Sound good? Cool, lets get started with my list of homeware;

Last Winter Ceramics

Taking inspiration from mountains and nature.

Nic creates stunning ceramics from her home studio in rural Perthshire. 

Disclaimer, I actually have a mini collection of bells coming out with Nic this week BUT this isn’t just self serving I genuinely love her work and you can obviously see why.

Studio Emma

Concrete made super cool and colourful.

Emma’s pieces are bold and beautiful.

Fun fact – One of my favourite wedding presents were little P and E letters from Studio Emma that sit proudly on on our book shelf.

Steph Liddle

Based in Dundee Steph hand makes contemporary graphic homeware and jewellery.

I can’t wait to pick up one of their rad ceramic takeaway coffee cups, the next time I’ve got some spare pennies.

Birkim Bags

Super playful pots in the shape of bags.

I love how this everyday item has been transformed into such stand out pieces.

The Blackened Teeth

The most magnificent macabre homeware store.

I would like one of everything please, but I have a particular love for their skeletal lamps.

Nihal Shah

One of my Yonder buddies. I had the pleasure of seeing Nihal’s process in real life and how hard he works.

Each piece is thoughtful and created with so much care. His geometric deigns make for unique yet elegant homeware.

Object Company

Woodwork and Ceramics studio hand making pieces using wood that is donated or collected.

The pieces have an organic feel but modern style.  

Grain and Knot

Hand carved objects from sustainable and reclaimed timber.

Creating everyday items like brushes and spoons.

Sunday Living

Hand curated pieces of homeware from amazing indie UK based businesses.

Sophie & Allie, started the online community Slow Sunday Club back in 2018 which nourished their love for homeware and grew into their online boutique.

Poodle and Blonde

Luxury interiors brand with a super fun, yet high fashion feel.

Stand out pieces, artwork and even wallpaper that adds character to your home. 

Found Through interiors icon Emma Jane Palin

Laura Nevill

A collection of One-off illustrated pieces  inspired by tattoos and tarots cards.

Laura’s work is original and seriously dreamy.  

This post will be followed by candles, plants, art, lifestyle stores, plant based food and drink, clothes and anything else I can think of, so watch this space.

I really hope you’re as excited about this new series of posts as I am.

They are all going to be working lists so if you have anywhere you’d think I’d love hit me up in the comments or social media.
