Illustrated Living launched in 2009 with the desire to offer a hand-picked collection of homewares and lifestyle products that you couldn't find in catalogues or on the high street.

Our carefully selected collections will delight individually-minded customers who love the beautiful and the unique. Alongside our perennial favourites, we are constantly introducing new designers. Every piece that we stock possesses the power to transform your room or your home.

Both in our Truro store and on-line we showcase stylish collections which will help you add your own special touch to your space. You will discover fine jewellery, small storage and contemporary soft furnishings at Illustrated Living together with refined furniture and memorable lighting. We work with Swedish, Danish and English designers who create unique work with both the quality and the look which will lift your interior. Perfectly fusing functionality with stunning aesthetics, our collections celebrate the beauty of outstanding design.

Many of our customers say that we're their favourite shop. Now that you've found us, we hope we're your favourite shop, too.

It's the smaller details which can make all the difference to your spaces. Our exceptional homewares provide the perfect finishing touches for your home and you will find something special for every room including beautifully crafted mirrors and fabulous rugs. Completing your interior with the best of Scandinavian design, our home decor accessories also include tableware, placemats, vases and candles.
