Namaste Philosophy

A furniture shop with a difference.

We aim to stock mostly reclaimed, handmade and ethical furniture and products, an eclectic mix of unusual and beautiful objects for your home from dressers to Dalit candles, chandeliers to Georgian columns.  We are also able to get pieces made to measure including Industrial tables,  mirrors, coffee tables and the upholstered Victorian style chairs all featured on our blog.

We opened in August last year and have had a fantastic response from the local community who have thanked us for bringing something a ‘bit different’ to the area. We have had a particularly good response from local businesses and have helped furnish a number of bars, cafes and salons in the area who have an eye for all things quirky and creative.

At Namaste we are not content to be just another retail outlet, we are committed as a business to connect and engage with the local community and the world around us. Passionate about supporting the high street and social justice issues we are keen to use our shop as a platform to connect with people and help raise awareness.

We have made efforts to find local artists and furniture makers, ethical suppliers and designers in order to create a unique experience in home interiors and decoration. We hope to inspire, create and give opportunities to others sharing their work and telling their stories.

Namaste Philosophy

To be stylish and unique. To sell items we personally love and believe will inspire people to be more creative.

To be an active part of and help build local community, supporting other independent businesses and positive projects wherever and however we can.

To always try to source stock locally or ethically first wherever possible. To carefully consider the ethics and sustainability of materials prioritising second hand, restored/ upcyled, reclaimed/ salvaged, re-invented, locally or ethically sourced from abroad – eg, fairtrade and Independent sole traders.

We hope you enjoy our collection and that through our shop or our blog you too can be a connected part of our local community

‘’Have nothing in your house that you know not to be useful or beautiful…. and sourced with a thought for others and the environment’’
