The Beginning

Our story began in 1985 when founder Sarah Walker was furnishing an apartment and realized how little there was to buy on island. After a few years Sarah’s sister and husband, Sue and Chris Trew took over the reign, and in 2008 after working alongside Sue furnishing Villas, Karin Truedsson stepped in as the new owner and continued the journey.

The brand has continued to grow and evolve and is today one of the leading Home & Lifestyle retailers in Barbados with a large local and international clientele.

We combine our love of travel and design to fuel our creativity, bringing authenticity, practicality, and functionality into any space. We dream of sharing our passion by drawing on inspiration from all corners of the world to turn your home into a welcome oasis – your favourite place to gather, relax and retreat and know that This Is Living.

Get To Know us

Our showroom is located at Millhouse & Home Design Centre, near Warrens, where you will be able to browse over 8000 square feet of inspiring home collections. Once you step inside our store, you immediately understand how we set ourselves apart. Our ethos is “ people first”, our approach welcoming, and our products complement the best of island living, bringing style and beauty to any space.

When asked what keeps customers coming back time and time again, Karin says, “I think it’s because they know they can always find the unexpected, and the merchandise is ever-changing, so there is always something new to discover!” The atmosphere is casual and relaxed and, she adds, “in many cases customers are on first name terms with the staff because they are genuinely so warm and helpful.”

When you visit us, you’ll find a carefully selected, eclectic mix of indoor and outdoor furniture, home décor, lighting, soft furnishings, accessories, and gifts. We love light and open interiors. Some of our favorite pieces are sourced from East Asia where the designs are naturally modern, materials organic and earthy, well-suited to our Caribbean climate and lifestyle. Whether you simply need some ideas for freshening up your space or are looking for a completely new interior, we are always happy to help!

We invite you to explore our products and look forward to being part of your home project!
