About Us

Material Life was launched in October 2008. Our name was derived from a contemplation of the materials that surround you and enhance your life. The products selected by us have been chosen for their superior design and quality. The selection is from some of the most recognizable designer brands, including Knoll, Vitra, Gubi, Artifort, Verco, Design Letters and Hitch Mylius. All of these suppliers manufacture furniture and accessories to exacting standards and offer quality guarantees.

The cornerstones of Material Life's offering are:

  1. Personal Service
  2. Curated Product Selection
  3. Competitive Pricing

Personal service doesn't simply mean that we respond to client emails and telephone calls promptly. Our staff members have expert product and industry knowledge and are able to give our clients advice and help when they make their purchase. We are able to help with the selection of products, we'll let clients know what options are available, and we'll send samples, if required.

The range of products we offer on our website has been carefully selected for your home. The manufacturers we represent are famous for the quality and design of their furniture. Our selection includes items suitable for Home Office, Outdoors, and Children. We also offer a good selection of designer goods that are perfect as gifts, including clocks, wooden sculptures, and trays. If clients want items from other manufacturers, we are happy to source those too. We also supply a large range of products from various manufacturers for commercial/office contracts.

Our pricing policy is to offer everyday good pricing to our clients. The manufacturers we represent supply products at a fixed retail price for the United Kingdom and the prices on our site represent this faithfully. We do however have two annual online sale seasons - Summer and Winter (July & January) where products are discounted directly. Throughout the year though we are able to offer our customers the best deals available, just give us a call or send an email and we'll do our best to get you a great price.

Furthermore, we offer free delivery to mainland United Kingdom addresses for all orders placed online.


Our deliveries are managed by SmartVan.
