about us

hi, welcome to houseof

Welcome to people-first retail.

houseof was born out of a shared personal philosophy that people matter and that personality should be celebrated not ignored. Here you’ll find an online movement, inspired by the people who form it and full of like-minded people to be inspired by. We are all here to change the way online retail works, by empowering our community with expert information, design and inspiration. Opening ourselves up to real, ongoing conversations.

We just happen to sell incredible lights.

“When we started houseof, we started a community of like-minded people. We want to help represent your personality in your home… and the way to do that in an industry that has historically been a monologue… is to start a dialogue.”

people power.

We are a small team (for now) with BIG aspirations and an awareness that you are our greatest asset. Let us know when we get it wrong (we promise we’ll learn from it), celebrate with us when we get it right. Tell us about your home, tell us about your lives, tell us where to go next.

let there be light.

Light seems like a smart place to start and we are a team grounded in decades of lighting experience. Light and colour will always be synonymous with houseof, as will quality products expertly designed to harmonise your personality and your functional requirements.

trust us. we are you.

We are a brand moulded by our own personalities, and we are all houseof customers first and foremost. Seek us out individually (we all run our own houseof social channels) use our expertise, inspire us with your experiences and let’s have some fun. This is a community effort.

so… how can we help?
