Space 1a Design Cushions

About Us

Inspired by nature, with respect for nature

We set up Space 1a Design in 2011 to celebrate curious contemporary design and promote sustainable production. The award-winning home collection is inspired by the natural world and includes giftware, wallpaper, cushions, lampshades, ceramics, furniture and kitchen accessories. We are an independent design business which is family-owned and run from our London studio. Space 1a uses sustainable materials and UK based manufacturers and suppliers wherever possible, doing our bit to protect the environment and keep artisan skills alive in Britain.

The conversation-starting designs are vibrant, contemporary and sustainable respecting the environments, animal habitats and economies the products and raw materials are sourced from. We do not mass produce our products and take great care to work with partners who mirror our values and sustainable ethos. Our lampshades are still handmade in our London studio - hand cut, rolled and made to order.

We proudly sell our imaginative products to customers and design shops and our products are regularly featured in British and International Press leading trends in Home and Gift. Passion for our products and respect for the world around us motivate us every day to deliver high quality colourful products to our customers.

Sustainable Production

As contemporary designers, we are constantly inspired by the world around us. For this reason, it is important to us to keep this world as pristine as we can, so that all the things that inspire our creative processes now, can still be there for the next generation.

Taking this responsibility seriously, Space 1a endeavours to run a sustainable business – minimising our impact on the environment and working with partners and suppliers who share our values. As such, we are committed to manufacturing locally in the United Kingdom wherever possible and local European manufacturers only if manufacturing outlets in the UK fitting our ethos do not exist, thus cutting the carbon footprint of our organisation and, in turn, our products. We proudly work with 25 UK-based suppliers and 1 Swedish supplier to produce our collection of 160+ products.
