We love the items we sell so inevitably one or two pieces find their way into our home every year. Our lounge area plays home to some of our favourite objet, picked up over the last 16+ years.
This beautiful London based 3 bedroom apartment has been described by the 20th Century Society as “a benchmark against which all other apartment blocks can be measured”.
The light-filled dining area is a stand-out space, furnished with design classic pieces from Vitra & Louis Poulsen. The flat itself may now have been sold but you can recreate this interior look right here at Utility.
Our digital content manager Shaun likes to keep things clean, minimal and with an edge towards the tonal. This corner of his apartment displays all of these along with a hint of organised clutter (when asked about the old poster tubes he said, "...because colour palette").
His favourite piece? That'd have to be the Vitra Eames LTR Side Table.
Following a devastating fire, Norm Architects have restored this historic villa in Copenhagen once inhabited by legendary designer, Poul Henningson.
The result is a modern home that references its original state. The dark mid-century teak furniture and minimal marble plinths create beautiful contrasts, boasting a clean and subtle elegance against the plain, white walls.
The VitraHaus, built by Herzog & de Meuron, is Vitra’s flagship store and home to the Vitra Home Collection. During our recent visit to the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein we came across this room set which caught our eye.
The bold colour of Charles & Ray Eames' RAR Rocking chair worked perfect nestled among Jasper Morrison's Cork family of stools andthe black Eames Hang It Al.

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!
Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!
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 :-)
Thanks so much for your extraordinary service. -
Thanks again for such amazing customer service - I have honestly been so impressed by everything! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job
Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.
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.
Thank you for all your help and customer service, the Eames Lounge Chair arrived yesterday and I love it.
Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
