Environment and Sustainability

We believe our planet is precious, so we don't want you to buy things again and again and again. We want you to buy it once and buy it right - and then we want it to last a life time.

We pride ourselves on working with manufacturers who shares these values.


We are proud to be Anti-Consumerism.

Consumerism is a social and economic order that encourages the acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts

We take huge pride in working almost exclusively with companies whose products are designed to last 10-20 years. Many of the chairs we sold back in 1987 are still in use, and we have helped to repair many of the small number that needed it over the last 35 years.

Throughout the companies we focus on eco:

  • LED lighting throughout our stores
  • Renewable energy contracts
  • Recyclable packaging (we stopped using plastic bags nearly 15 years ago!)
  • Recycling at all locations
  • Carefully selected eco-manufacturers (see more detail below)
  • We sell no single-use products of any kind
  • Green Rated delivery companies
  • Eco fabrics (our favorite is Dinamica)
  • Low journey miles (allmost all products are Europe sourced)
  • Many own brand items are UK-manufactured
