About us

Established on Lewes High Street in 1996 The Laurels is an independent, dynamic, creative store filled with ideas for you to be inspired!

All the products we select combine great design, function and colour; from just a simple card to clothes, shoes, boots, bags, fabric, ceramics, throws and cushions and not forgetting the toys… yes we stock the wonderful Jellycat!

So, we have a lot for you to browse especially when you add in the special vintage glass, furniture and ceramics that we collect with a passion. We support the idea of avoiding disposable items so you can select knowing that each piece will be cherished and loved.Alongside British designers, it is surprising how many of our brands are from Europe and Scandinavia. It has been a natural choice for us as the design, simplicity of style and colour are so satisfying and make us feel good.

As well as new designers and independent companies like JumperFabriken, RepeatRepeat, MiniModerns and Twig, we love our list of brands; Marimekko, Camper, Ilse Jacobsen, 0039Italy, Linum, BrontebyMoon and we still even have a few special pieces by Orla Kiely.

Over the years the shop has evolved and blossomed, only made possible with the support of a fantastic team that I am very proud to be a part of. Isabelle, Jenny and Nina at The Laurels hope to welcome you soon to the very special LeweHighStreet.
