‘Humpties/pouffes - a great asset to the home, which may encourage the busy housewife to give herself that short break - with her feet up - after the mid-day meal which will enable her to carry on with renewed vigour, and even possibly give her a more hopeful outlook on the tasks which remain to be done.’
It’s funny how a short paragraph stumbled upon in a little vintage book can inspire an idea that grows and grows.
With their roots firmly in traditional upholstery, Rachel Zivkovic and Stuart Bottomley designed Humpties with comfort, durability, sustainability and affordability in mind. They had to look good too.
Drawing on time honoured skills and expertise and keen to offer opportunities and work experience to new and emerging designers, the Humpties brand was born. Take a look at our current collection.
