As the title of this post suggests, I’ve round up a few of the best independent homeware brands in Birmingham that you may wish to support – now, or in the future. It of course goes without saying that this isn’t an extensive list – just a few of my personal favourites.
The majority of shops listed have websites and do deliveries further afield. So, if you’re not based in Birmingham, don’t be put off!
Shopping small…but why?
With the current situation, now, more than ever, I’m trying to support smaller businesses where I can – and local ones too. One purchase may not seem like much, but it really does make all the difference to smaller businesses trying to navigate these uncertain times.
Despite our renovation plans being put on hold, I’ve been busy searching for the perfect pieces to add to our home when the time comes. Of course, that meant looking at some of the best independent homeware brands local to me. So I thought I’d share them with you if you’re also hunting for special pieces for your home.
I’ve compiled a list of 8 Birmingham based homeware brands I love, that I think you may have a soft spot for too. Some I’ve known about for a while, and others are slightly newer to me but instantly made me giddy…
The best independent homeware brands (in Birmingham):
Isherwood & Co – “Not-Your-Average Neighbourhood Florist & Houseplant Shop.”
I’ve heard so many great things about this place, but am yet to physically visit in person. As soon as our house is looking all lovely, I’m planning on heading here to pick up some goods. I’m already eyeing up a very posh looking HAWS mister in brass (in love!) and a cheese plant. I’ve wanted one for ages now!
Hedge – “Hedge is where you can find those brands you’ve only read about, pieces to transform your home and gifts you want to keep for yourself.”
I fell in love with Hedge the very first time I walked through it’s doors. The dark, moody interior, paired with the loveliest homeware pieces just left me wanting to buy everything and anything I could get my hands on. I can’t wait to splurge some more in here ASAP.
Kin Home – “Bringing together Scandinavian inspired items from across Europe and beyond.”
I’m. In. Heaven. I love this shop so much! Harry and I are obsessed with Scandinavian design since our visit to Copenhagen, so this shop caters for our needs in every way, selling goods from Ferm Living and HAY, to name just two! I’ve previously purchased pieces from here, and will be getting even more as soon as our house is ready!
Minima – “Timeless mid-century & contemporary furniture, lighting & accessories.”
Again, this place is all about Scandi design, so I was super happy when I discovered it! We’ll be heading here as soon as we can to purchase some goods to make our house all fancy!
The Clean Kilo – “The UK’s largest zero waste supermarket.”
Okay, so this may not be a homeware shop as such (it’s technically a supermarket), but it has lots of little bits that you can get for your home. I’m planning on picking up lots of cleaning goods, like pan brushes and cloths as soon as our kitchen is done. They’re eco-friendly and they look good too! Win, win!
Honest Skincare – “Holistic Organic Natural Ethical Simple True.”
I adore this shop. It’s another place where I instantly want everything. If you’re after candles, skincare products, essential oils or other lovely home pieces, this should be your go-to!
Samuel Heath – “British designer & manufacturer of luxury bathroom fittings & architectural hardware.”
If Dowsing & Reynolds or Buster & Punch are your thing, you’ll love this place. If you’re after great design pieces for your bathroom, or luxury handles for your doors and windows, head here. They’re not cheap, but they’ll certainly make an impact.
Just Be Retro – “We quintessentially specialise in selling Mid-Century furniture from the 50s 60 70s.”
These guys restore or tailor any piece of furniture to your requirements. You can buy chairs, tables and storage from them which they’ve given some TLC to, and turned into beautiful pieces ready for your home. I particularly love their sideboards – which is how I recently came across them, after spotting one in @renovatinglovelane home!
I hope you find something you love. And, if you know of any other amazing homeware brands in Birmingham (or smaller businesses further afield to support), let me know!
