The Living Furniture Project
Our Story

Based in our workshop just off Brick Lane, we employ and train homeless Londoners to make beautiful bespoke furniture

We are dedicated to sustainability - upcycling old unwanted furniture or working with waste materials reclaimed from the local area.

Every piece is unique - designed to your brief by one of our partner designers, who then teach our homeless Apprentices to build the furniture in our fully equipped workshop.

Apprentices also work alongside a Mentor - a professional and experienced furniture maker who teaches them valuable skills, and ensures a beautiful, crafted final product.

This unique way of working makes for a beautifully crafted and socially positive end-product, that you'll love now, and for generations to come.
