Act Now – Beat The August Price Increases

In light of the recent EU referendum - and sudden devaluation of the British Sterling against the Euro - many of the leading European designers such as Moooi, Foscarini and Knoll have issued price increases effective from August 1st. These price increases will add as much as 10% to the RRP across their entire product ranges; and when you're investing hundreds, sometimes thousands, it's important to get the best price available.

But fear not, you can still get your hands on many of their coveted items at pre-increase prices (discounted too!) including the Knoll Saarinen Table, Moooi Random Pendant Light and the Foscarini Aplomb Suspension Light.

We have taken it upon ourselves to round up some of the best, most iconic designs from Moooi, Foscarini and Knoll that you cannot afford to miss out on. Act now and save up to 15%


Knoll Associates was founded in 1946 by Hans Knoll, the son of a German furniture maker, and his wife Florence Knoll. Working with Isamu Noguchi, Harry Bertoia, Warren Platner, Eero Saarinen and Mies van der Rohe, the look of the company is defined by instantly recognisable original design classics as well as fresh new designs from new talent like Marc Krusin.

Below are just a few of our favourites from Knoll...

Foscarini Lighting

Foscarini Lighting was founded in Murano - a name synonymous with Italian glass in 1981. Whilst its original designs concentrated exclusively in developing this precious and traditional material the company has developed into something of a leading light in lighting design. With designers like Rodolfo Dordoni (Lumiere Lamp), Ferrucio Laviani, Patricia Urquiola (Caboche Light) and Marc Sadler (Twiggy Floor Lamp) Foscarini has produced some of the most iconic lighting designs of recent times. Latterly the Successful Living collection in conjunction with fashion company Diesel has created a range of lighting solutions to reflect the company's raw, industrial credentials.

Check out our selection of must-have lighting from Foscarini...


For more than ten years Moooi has inspired and seduced the world with sparkling and innovative designs. The venture founded in 2001 by Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers is named after their native Dutch word for beautiful – the third ‘o’ in the brand name stands for an extra value in terms of beauty & uniqueness.

The collection’ style is exclusive, daring, playful, exquisite and based on the belief that design is a question of love. We have collated just some of these fascinating designs below...

Don't forget our Summer Sale is in full swing with 15% off other popular brands like Hay, Vitra, String Shelving and Flos. You can also find a range of heavily discounted items in our Outlet store with up to 55% off iconic designs like the Kartell Masters Chair, Fritz Hansen Drop Chair and the Moooi Random Pendant Light.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
