We love to champion new British designers. With a large portion of Trouva’s boutiques being based in the UK, it makes sense that we share the love with homewares that are designed in the UK, too. While we’re forever obsessed with Scandi style and European designer makers, we know that the UK has a vast amount of homeware boutiques that are rooted in British design.
Read on to discover 6 heroes of British design.
With humble beginnings as a small business in Yorkshire, Coach House is now one of the largest homeware and gift brands in the UK. Their designs span from contemporary to traditional across furniture and home decor. For unique and often quirky pieces that won’t break the bank, this is the brand to watch.
Established in 1785, it’s fair to say that Walton & Co are experts in all things home textiles. Their design team may be based in North Yorkshire but are well-travelled with strong connections in manufacturing. From recycled cotton throws to cottagecore gingham table runners, bring a little bit of the Yorkshire Dales to your home.
Working with up and coming British artists, East End Prints is a brand made up of women who have an eye for design. Curate a gallery wall with their range of striking, impactful and often thought provoking art prints and know that you’re supporting independent creatives as well as a company with strong ethical foundations.
Gone are the days of picking up plain old seeds in the supermarket. Herboo provides design led seed packets that don’t compromise on colour. Perfect for gifting and guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, Herboo was founded in London and puts emphasis on the idea of gardening from everywhere. No need to have a huge garden, there’s a lot to be done with a windowsill.
A national treasure, David Shrigley’s designs are comical, witty and often rude with a British sense of humour. His almost childlike hand-drawn aesthetic is easily recognisable across a range of coasters, mugs, salt & pepper shakers and notebooks. Great for last minute birthday gifts and for your own home alike, any David Shrigley piece is guaranteed to be a conversation starter.
