"Have nothing in your houses which you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful" - William Morris

The home of Believe to be Beautiful Vintage and Collectables


I believe in the power of beautiful design to make a difference in our day to day lives. The advice from William Morris to “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful” is just as relevant today as it was when he saw mechanisation and industrialisation stripping the beauty out of life.

You can trust that every vintage item I place in my shops has been chosen because it has beautiful design at its core. Some might have a significant form in their line, colour, shape or feel. Others will demonstrate beautiful design in their usefulness. I hope you will find something that you like.

If there is anything you would like me to look out for, or if you have any comments or questions about any aspect of Believe to be Beautiful, a particular item, or the website you can always contact me – I would love to hear from you!
