About us

"A Joyful Combination of the Beautiful and the Functional"

Looking for items with an eye catching aesthetic which are a pleasure to furnish your home with? We’ve spent over 10 years collecting the best of contemporary European design and choosing items in which we find joy.

Founded in 2007 in a colourful and creative area of Bristol, we’re a proudly independent business with a love of design and colour. With a long standing interest in the ethics of business, our collection includes many fairly traded products including those products from two of our biggest brands, Rice and Nkuku.

Our Wapping Wharf Store

Mark and Luke - founders of Fig1 - are from a creative family. Our flagship store in Bristol’s Wapping Wharf was designed and fitted out by Mark and his Dad. Based in Bristol’s independent business quarter, we’re proud every time a customer comments "I’d love to live in this shop". Our new store is the culmination of 10 years of Fig1 and years more of creative practice.

Small Team, Big on Service

With Fig1, you’ll always have a dedicated small team to help with problems. You’re not data to us - we know what’s on order, who packed it and can find out where it is quickly and efficiently if there are any problems. When you visit our shop, we like to feel we’re welcoming you to our home - to a space we’ve designed and curated to share with friends old and new. We believe the same quality of service should apply online, so any problems, just pick up the phone. We’re always happy to help.

Things we Believe about Life

We believe life is best shared with friends. We believe in family meals, in shared experiences, in a healthy, active life spent pursuing your dreams. We believe in minimising our impact and that a little shared is better than a lot hoarded. We believe in creative life and fulfillment through expression. We believe in slow living, community and pleasure in small things.
