Modish Living is the result of Hellen & Chris Barlow’s desire to encourage the sale of beautifully crafted rustic and sustainable furniture in the UK, with a high focus on using reclaimed wood.
This dream has been made possible through teaming up with local craftsmen as well as extending the relationships to specialist suppliers and increasingly working directly with overseas workshops and factories.
Our concept is to continuously identify new luxury rustic designs at various price points, ensuring the offer of sustainable and reclaimed wood furniture is accessible to everyone. We foresee that demand for sustainably sourced furniture, including rustic furniture made using recycled materials, will continue to grow. And we are excited to be part of this growth!
