We believe that great design makes life better and should be able to reach everyone, be it in Switzerland or in London. What makes a design object unique is the idea that stands behind it and the quality of its realisation. However, the offering in between very high end and mass production is too often limited, which is what we want to help rectifying.
At Heidi & James, we like to discover those great design pieces for you and to understand the reasons why designers have created them. Our collection of contemporary furniture and accessories is carefully selected from up-and-coming designers based in the UK and in Switzerland (though sometimes we venture further afield when a piece is too good to ignore).
By spending time with designers we get to discover great furniture and accessories that can surround us in good days and cheer us up on the bad ones for decades to come. We hope that you will enjoy discovering these objects of design as much as we did, both on our website and during the exhibitions that we regularly host in Switzerland
It is not rare that she is being called Heidi or asked where James is. Despite the certain ambiguity, Véronique Le Fort is the one hiding behind this pseudonym. Raised in Geneva, she worked in the German part of Switzerland before moving to London. Fascinated by the variety of furniture design this city had to offer, she decided to bring some back to her home country.
