Based in Manchester, we?re an independent, stand-out, contemporary home brand with a conscience!
We provide a platform for showcasing contemporary, design-led home furnishings and homewares including sustainable products so consumers have these choices available. We also champion smaller, emerging, independent makers and manufacturers with a focus on those who are British (our exclusive partnership with Moom lighting is an example of this). By doing this, we hope to be able to make more locally made and sustainable products available to both retail and commercial customers at accessible prices.?
We aim to help customers see there are real alternatives to both mainstream, cheaper products and those that are higher end, together with demonstrating it is possible to have both contemporary and sustainably furnished spaces. This includes working with some great interior designers who share this ethos.
Our mission is to create "Happiness at Home" by helping to create beautiful homes (and commercial spaces!) to be proud of both in terms of design and sustainability. All backed by exceptional customer experience, we genuinely recognise our customers are the heartbeat of H&W and we?re here to help in any way we can.
We?re really excited about our exclusive range of sustainably made, handcrafted pendant lights from an emerging British maker, Moom, based in Bournemouth. They use a traditional method of manufacture called 'metal spinning' in which a metal disc is shaped in a similar way to clay being formed in a potter's wheel. They breathe new life into disused moulds (known as chucks) that would otherwise have been discarded and consigned to the scrap heap. In a former life, they may have been used to create anything from airplane nose-cones to gas cylinders to musical instruments but now they live on and are used to create Moom?s beautiful light collection. It?s this sustainable loop of reusing old materials and reducing waste to create long lasting, design-led lighting that really fits so well with us here at H&W.
We also have a stunning range of ever popular reclaimed, sustainably made dining tables and benches ? both indoor and outdoor! Handmade in the heart of England, they?re available in a great range of styles, finishes and sizes all at accessible prices!
At Hemming & Wills, it?s also about more than profit! As part of this commitment, Hemming & Wills donates 1% of its turnover to 1% for the Planet. This is great opportunity for us to contribute to a global environmental cause yet also support local organisations such as the Marine Conservation Society who are doing some fantastic work protecting and cleaning up our precious coasts and waters. ?As we grow, we?ll be looking to partner with charities including those in the mental health and LGBT sectors, with the aim of reaching 3% of revenue donations each year.?
