Our Story

Back in 2003, my husband and I started to plan a business on our honeymoon. We wanted to focus on mid-century designs such as the Eames Lounge chair, the Egg chair and the Tulip table, as we loved these classics. But we didn’t want our business to be like other “Designer” shops, which often have a superior air about them that can be off-putting. We wanted our business to have friendly, knowledgeable staff and be easy to deal with.
I’m pleased to say that Couch Potato Company is still going strong well over a decade later. The range of brands we stock and the product portfolio has grown significantly since 2003. As well as being main stockists for big brands such as Vitra, Knoll and Fritz Hansen we now represent some niche European brands like Stouby and Wewood as the UK importer. But we still have the same criteria when considering whether to include a new product range in our collection: It must be well-designed, practical and great to look at. Our business ethos has not changed since we started trading – we aim for happy customers. It’s that simple.
