About Us

“An interior is the natural projection of the soul”
Coco Chanel

Homeplace was founded on the basis that homes should tell a story about their inhabitants.

And our aim is to provide our customers with an eclectic but carefully considered selection of vintage, mid century, retro and contemporary furniture, lighting and homeware, so they are able to mix styles, eras, colours and textures to create homes that have as much personality as they do.

We source items which we love and which we hope you will do too. We are passionate about great design - contemporary as well as Mid Century but we are also fans of the quirky and the whimsical..and we like nothing better than mixing them all up to create eclectic interiors with heaps of individuality.

The idea of incorporating vintage pieces into the home as a means for a more sustainable way of living is also important to us here at Homeplace - for today's eco-conscious consumer, there is arguably no more environmentally friendly a way to furnish a home. 

However, not everyone has the time to scour flea markets and fairs so Homeplace offers an edited selection of ever-changing eye catching vintage, Mid Century and retro pieces as well as an exciting range of well designed & interesting contemporary items that will happily sit alongside each other in the home.

We hope you like what you see and we are always happy to try and source items if you have something particular in mind.

Most of our pieces are available as props for hire so don't hesitate to get in touch for further info - hello@homeplace.co.uk.

Homeplace is run by Wendy Aldridge with support from husband James, ably assisted by 2 small children, a baby and not forgetting Pablo the Border Terrier.

We currently run the business out of our own home(place) in Walthamstow.

Holiday Lets

We also own and run 2 holiday apartments - one here in the UK on the Kent coast & one in the beautiful city of Porto, Portugal.

The Ramsgate apartment sleeps 6 comfortably across 3 double bedrooms, has 2 bathrooms, a large open plan kitchen/living area, kids TV den and access to a small courtyard. It sits in one of the Victorian mansion properties on the East Cliff and is less than a 5 minute walk from a big sandy beach.

The property is available for short term holiday lets and as a shoot location. More information can be found here.

The Porto apartment also sleeps 6 across 2 double bedrooms and a room with one single bed and a pull out daybed for which we provide bedlinen. It is a large and spacious apartment with a comfortable lounge opens into a dining room with seating for 6/8.

There's a kitchen which opens into a small glazed breakfast room as well as a bathroom and kids TV den. The apartment retains many of its original features including parquet floors, original doors/windows etc and has been sympathetically renovated to make the most of these features.

Location wise, it is situated on a quiet street in the beautiful and historic Bonfim area of the city, apx a 5 mins walk from 2 different Metro stations. The buzzy Downtown area with a plethora of bars and restaurants to choose from is apx a 15/20 minute walk away.
