Our Story

Weave your way through the pavement display into our shop in the heart of Leicester’s ‘old town’ lanes area and you’ll be greeted by a collection of eclectic homewares together with the scent of our favourite home fragrance and of course, an old-fashioned smile. Slow down, exhale, take your time to browse and choose exactly the right thing.

When you’ve been once, you’ll want to come back time and again to Harriman & Co, to stock up on household essentials as well as invest in one-off furniture pieces. Established in 2014 by Drew & James, we offer an ever-changing selection of homeware and furniture, hand-picked for beauty and functionality. 

When selecting new stock, our decision-making process is simple. We ask two questions: Is it beautiful? And, does it have a function? We use the products ourselves at home, so we can answer all of your questions. 

Since we’re a small shop, we can buy products in batches to keep things fresh, seasonal and up to date while still stocking our core range. And if you’re looking for something in particular, let us know so we can either order it in especially or keep an eye out for you. 

We love thoughtful design and simple functional objects with a natural, nostalgic feel. Lasting, elemental materials are important to us too; whether that’s glass, timber, stoneware, ceramic or metal. And if the object captures a sense of history, yet still fits in the modern home, so much the better.

We are inspired by our worldwide travels as well as Drew’s antipodean interior design background. Constantly on the lookout for new ideas, we’ll pick up tips from city travels, hotels and restaurants as well as rustic adventures and visits to local maker workshops.

Supporting local artists is a crucial part of keeping home design personal, ethical and environmentally friendly. We can also commission furniture and other pieces to fit into the design of your home. Pop in to the shop to have a chat about what you’re looking for.
