About Us

Grain crafts purposeful and dependable furniture that meets the needs of people and the natural world. Instead of piling high and selling the cheap and obsolete, the company utilises sustainable materials and repairable assemblies to make responsible furniture. All of its products are manufactured on-demand, locally to customers, and everything is made for the circular economy, meaning no part of Grain's products ever need to see a landfill site. The team design all of their products flatpack, so they are better to ship, and easier for customers to move around. All together, Grain provides furniture that is better for people and the planet.

Grain was founded in 2017 after the designers noticed that the industry wasn’t offering the kind of products that people really needed. Plenty of companies were producing to meet market demand, but few were meeting human needs – built-to-break furniture and passing trends were keeping customers in an endless buying cycle, and they wanted to change that. 

Worse still, hardly any companies were producing furniture in an environmentally responsible way. The industry as a whole was turning a blind eye to its impact on the planet, leaving consumers without an environmentally responsible option for furniture.

Grain’s design ethos is to meet the needs of people and the planet. That means purposeful, dependable products that are designed for the circular economy, and made in a responsible way.

"We recently finished development and launched our range of modular shelving. Available in 65 length and shelf combinations, our Avon shelves are designed to be the most adaptable wall-mounted storage solution available. Easy to assemble, easy to disassemble. Designed to grow with you. Reuse, replace. Easily customisable and always built with people and the planet in mind.

It took nearly a year of development but now utilising vertical storage in the home has never been easier. And, like all Grain products, nothing has to go to landfill."
