Our story.

houseof was founded by Helen and Michael in April 2019, out of a shared frustration with the direction of high-street retail. We might have only just started but we are making waves and keeping our promises.

Helen and Hannah at our press event

We know retail.

After 20 years working for some of the high-street's biggest names, we created houseof to shake up the market... challenging the way everything is done and bringing a startup mentality to a stale industry.

"this company was born out of a shared personal philosophy that people matter and that personality should be celebrated not ignored"

We share values.

houseof was built on a shared set of values... designing beautiful products, being nice to people and doing less harm is just the start. Find out how we live our values everyday here.

Helen and Michael at our press event

We know you.

We don't just know our customers... we are our customers. We are an ambitious, detail orientated duo who only create products that we want to fill our own homes with.

"we are here to change the way online retail works, by empowering our community with expert information, design and inspiration."

"I currently live on a "1970's building site" just outside of London. We bought the house two years ago and are in the middle of knocking most of it down, to (bit by bit) build the family house of our dreams"... follow my journey
