About Us

Our Story

Matt & Jacquie

In 2006, we the founders, Jacquie and Matt had just bought the shell of a building that was to become our new family home. Inspired by the first item we ever bought, a golden and very ornate mirror which we carried by hand all the way back from Paris (it weighed a tonne!), we immediately went in search of all things shabby chic. After months of wading through the UK’s retail market we struggled to find both beautiful and affordable French furniture so we had that time old realisation, if you want something done right; you have to do it yourself!

Excited and more prepared, we packed our bags, sailed to France and this time, brought back truck loads of beautiful furniture to sell in our brand new company, Sweetpea & Willow.

It turned out that our passion and direction was shared by our customers and since 2006, Sweetpea & Willow has become one of the fastest-growing, award winning companies in the UK. Always led by our goal of sourcing stylish pieces to make your house into a home, not only do we now import from approximately seven different countries but we are also proud to produce our own range right here in London.  Sweetpea & Willow gives you everything that we ourselves cherish: beautiful furniture, lighting, cushions, Armoires, beds, sofas, chairs and garden furniture to name but a few. Our style along with our website is always evolving as we search for fabulous new objects to help enrich your homes.

Our Style

As well as staying true to the classic shabby chic French style with which we made our name we are always encompassing new trends and materials. In 2012 a new member of the Sweetpea and Willow family was born, Beautiful Modern Thing which features the cutting edge in contemporary design.

More recently we’ve branched into our own furniture designs which have lead to the creation of our wonderfully popular Handmade in London range.

Our ethos is simple – to offer quality, classic French furniture at competitive prices. We keep our prices low whilst maintaining a superb level of quality.

Our Awards

Sheerluxe Winner 2012 Online Shopping AwardsOnline Retail Awards Commendation Award 2014
 

In 2012 we received our first Sheerluxe online shopping award nomination and were thrilled to go on to win against some top quality opposition. Nominated again in 2013 for the online awards we were finalists in four Sheerluxe categories. Also in 2013 we won the Coolbrands Award for being one of the coolest brands in the UK.

The ORA (Online Retail Awards) focus on the retailers and the experiences they offer shoppers, rather than on the platform, software or technology, so needless to say, we were extremely overwhelmed to have been nominated for such a prestigious award. Receiving a commendation for our hard work, endeavour and passion was a massive honour and we are very proud to now share this award with our customers and staff.

Don’t Just Take Our Word for it!

Here it from the professionals:

Having been the go-to place for all things French over the years, we are excited to see Sweetpea & Willow have increasingly embraced all things modern too – we particularly love the Handmade in London furniture collection.
