Delve into the website of the wonderful Really Well Made – such a well curated, huge selection of incredible design and homeware.

With brands including Vitra, Tom Pigeon, Jansen + Co, HAY, Design House Stockholm and String amongst other great designers, there’s so much style and elegance to bring to your interior. The store covers departments including furniture, lighting, accessories and soft furnishings.

They say ;

Really Well Made offers the very finest design-led contemporary furniture and accessories with a Scandinavian influence. We established in 2012 because we felt there were many retailers in the UK representing poorly conceived design products. We envisaged a collection of items that simply work well and transcend passing fashions. With that in mind we constantly search for design products which express a strong, timeless & minimalist aesthetic that will stand the test of time.
