For the ultimate shopping trip for your home try Soane of London. This design firm has a wonderful range of bespoke furniture that can be tailor made just for you.

Soane is a small London based company founded by Lulu Lytle and Christopher Hodsoll whose main raison d’etre was to fulfill the demand for architecturally designed bespoke furniture and lighting. Everything is made to order by English craftsmen who are the best in their fields

“I don’t care if we could make things cheaper in China or wherever. We source from workshops in this country that are best at woodworking, leather-making, upholstery, metal-working or whatever we need to make the longest lasting and most beautiful objects of their kind.” And beautiful they are!

Of course all the featured products below can be made to your own specifications, by changing woods, finishes and fabrics.

If you cannot make it across the Atlantic, you can order on line.
