do things differently.

At houseof we specialise in creatively engineered lights but we are much more than a lighting company. We like to think that the world would be a better place if we treated the planet a little more like it was our home. So, we are striving to change the world one light at a time and building a community of like-minded people who share our values.

we have purpose

houseof was founded by Helen White and Michael Jones in April 2019, out of a shared frustration with the way retailers designed their products, treated their people (customers and employees) and ignored our planet.

we know retail

After 20 years working for some of the high-street's biggest names, we created houseof to shake up the market... challenging the way even the small stuff is done and bringing a different approach to a stale industry.

we share values

Everyone we work with shares our values... products should be designed, people should be respected and the planet should be protected. These values are at the heart of every decision we make and every light we sell.

we know you

We don't just know our customers... we are our customers. We are an experienced, ambitious, detail orientated duo who only put the houseof name on products that we would fill our own homes with.
