Creating Happiness at Home.
How do you achieve Happiness at Home? This was the question that Chris Woolfenden, the founder of home brand Hemming & Wills, asked himself when he had the vision to create his future-first furniture company. Launched in late 2019, Hemming & Wills is an independent online home brand with a conscience. Merging a passion for contemporary, design-led, affordable furniture with a strong awareness of environmental responsibility, the mission of this furniture brand is to help their customers to create “Happiness at Home” through quality furniture and an unparalleled customer experience. Whether it’s the lounge, dining room, home office or bedroom, Hemming & Wills’ product range sees elegant and sumptuous velvet sofas and chairs hold their own alongside rustic reclaimed furniture that celebrates the popular industrial style.
The brains behind the brand is proud Mancunian Chris who has always had an eye for the finer things. Throughout his younger years, his interest and passion for home interiors grew, along with an entrepreneurial curiosity and business mindset. Now, he has built a brand that is constantly growing, with a focus on ethics and sustainability. A partnership with 1% for the planet sees Hemming & Wills donate a minimum of 1% of annual turnover which is then distributed to chosen environmental causes. Alongside this, the website has a dedicated sustainable collection which includes plastic free and reusable homewares, a range of handcrafted lighting made from recycled metals, and their best selling range of reclaimed wood tables. Made from British reclaimed pine wood and solid steel bases, these pieces embody what the brand is all about, promoting sustainability, style and durability.
