about us

 
originALS studio is a creative lifestyle brand dedicated to sourcing a unique, curated selection of accessories, home decor and gifts

We actively support female entrepreneurship, buying predominantly from female founded businesses and artisans. More women are starting businesses than ever, yet they are still underfunded and less likely to recover post-pandemic. We want to help address gender imbalance and meet the demand to shine a light on these fantastic businesses for our customers as well as provide them with a choice of unusual and stylish treasures.

Founder Alice's roots growing up in Asia as well as her degree and passion for History of Art lends itself to what we hope you agree is an interesting and unique curation of stunning items perfect for gifting your nearest and dearest (or yourself)! We operate in a room in a small space in central London with the help of Alice's cat Opal, who is especially interested in helping open and inspect deliveries.

 

From a beautiful statement vase to a set of napkins that elevate your dinner parties we hope you find truly special pieces that you will treasure or enjoy gifting to your nearest and dearest.

Founder Alice makes all stock decisions on the premise that we 'will never sell anything she wouldn't have in her own home', even using and 'test driving' samples of products herself for a few weeks before they go live to make sure we are happy to share them with you.

We aim to put buying preloved back on the map as a sustainable way of buying beautiful things as well as collecting unique pieces. We love to style and incorporate unique vintage pieces with other modern items in our collections for a fresh yet unique look.

"Are you a self-confessed candle addict? Then you need to head over to originALS studio, pronto. This newly-launched, female-founded independent has every on-trend home accessory you could imagine, especially when it comes to candles. We particularly love this cute, onion-shaped swirled candle which comes in pink, peach and white."
Stylist 'Best beaded necklaces';
'A more muted and demure take on the beaded necklace trend is this subtle chain, which is a perfect entrée for those too intimidated by the boldness of bright and unapologetic beads.'
Stylist Magazine:
'Can you make out what this cheeky print is trying to tell you? This tongue-in-cheek artwork from orignALS studio founder Alice is sure to make anyone who sees it hanging in your home crack a smile. Plus, it’s printed on thick weight museum-quality sustainable paper and look fabulous in a black frame. '

Stylist Magazine:
https://www.stylist.co.uk/home/interior-design/shop-daisy-homeware-accessories-decor/505121'OriginALS Studio has a lovely selection flower-pressed candles and we particularly like this green and white colourway. It features a range of botanicals and flowers with a daisy aesthetic and would make for a pretty nod to springtime.'

The Drop by Stylist:
"Shell-inspired jewellery continues to thrive as soon as the summer months arrive,” says Stylist’s fashion features editor Billie Bhatia. “The Caribbean might not be possible right now but you can still dip your toe into the seaside trend via this ring."

Blame Instagram, blame tablescaping, blame the greyness of winter but coloured glassware is the spring/summer homeware trend we can’t get enough of, and this set of four tumblers – available at a special price exclusively on The Drop – is the perfect gateway buy.

In a choice of pistachio green or smoked grey, the undulating wavy shape has serious vintage vibes. We’ll be adding them to the table for our first indoor dinner party and pairing with mismatched crockery. The biggest decision? Whether to fill them with a French picpoul or use as sparkling water glasses.

And if you’ve been blessed by the dishwasher gods, you’re in safe hands. Add these to the end-of-evening cycle and they’ll come out looking good as new. That’s quality Italian glassware for you.
