A well loved home

Atelier Ellis is here to help you tell your story of home.

Simple, useful and beautiful are our benchmarks.

Our design philosophy is based on a new classicism that is neither minimalist nor traditional, but quiet, emotive and timeless.

Intensely-pigmented paints that are quiet and painterly, but also hard-wearing. Colours that are deeply rooted in the natural world, as well as personal memories, marks and fragments – familiar and comforting. And beautiful furniture that’s designed to last, to be coveted, kept and passed down over the years.

Every aspect of our design and manufacturing process is carefully considered, so everything is beautifully made to the highest quality by British craftsmen. We choose to work only with makers and artisans who share our approach and high standards. We work hard to make this quality accessible to as many people as possible, to help them build their own story of home.

Stories are at the heart of the home, and we love to share them. We hope you find inspiration here to help you make your home perfect for the way you want to live. We hope to be part of your story too, not just today, but for many years to come.
