OUR Story

The spaces in which we dwell are a reflection of our intricacies, savvy and perceptions. Our connection with objects is undoubtedly poetic. An unconditional love affair that looks beyond wear and tarnishes, leaving behind only the emotional value.

We created Living In Design for this very reason, because furniture is more than a utilitarian fixture of the home. Cutting through the monotony of cut and paste interiors, you yourself may have wondered why we obsess about the clothes in our closet but never the closet itself.

So, we present to you the masters of the trade, designers and established artisans across Asia who have finessed the conventional archetype of furnishings, into a new realm of art. Rich in history and culturally noteworthy, these pieces represent an amalgam of eastern sensibilities and modern avant-garde. Our pioneering artists embrace the distinctive and fuse storytelling within their creations because, well it goes without saying, there's nothing quite as enigmatic as a good tale.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, our homeware is a considerable exchange of minds. Just think, your new dining table won't only host the evening's conversations, but be the hot topic itself. Extraordinary stories, spoken through design. This is our philosophy.

The Co-Founders

In preserving the cultural values of the East and showcasing unprecedented modern-day design, Mavis believes in bringing them to a whole new audience of sophisticates.

About Mavis

As the world continues to globalise, for Wilfrid this becomes more apparent in our homes, and an appetite for quality designed and crafted homeware will grow in permanence.
