We are also the UK agents for two leading international home interior brands Seletti and Serax.

We also have a skilled and experienced trade team who market our own two brands and Seletti and Serax to selected retailers in the UK and Eire. Our team have spent many years in retail and pride themselves in striving for excellent service, innovation and creativity while nurturing lasting relationships with our customers.

We both started our careers as designers and have since worked for some of the world’s top retailers and brands, learning our trade through some of the most inspiring managers, manufacturers, entrepreneurial owners and creative geniuses. These are but a few of those brands that we have had the pleasure of closely learning from and have inspired and educated us on our journey.
We now have our own business with a team of people who help support all aspects of our company, from design to sales to warehousing. Picking and packing goods to deliver to all our customers from our warehouse based here in Somerset.
