GRAND DESIGNS - Family-owned boutique furniture store opens in Mt Hawthorn
Welcome to Henry & Oliver Co. a boutique furniture and homewares store based in Mount Hawthorn. This family owned and operated business aims to provide customers with a personalised retail service both in-store and online. The store is filled with beautiful, high quality timeless pieces carefully hand-picked from across the globe, and many items are unique, so you won’t find them anywhere else in Perth. There’s a provincial/coastal-chic feel to Henry & Oliver Co. which makes for a relaxed and inviting ambience. Think Hamptons meets French country house, with a little funky retro thrown in the mix. And unlike most furniture and homewares stores, Henry & Oliver Co. doesn’t stock any particular brands.
“We don’t stock any specific labels as most of our pieces are exclusive to Henry & Oliver Co. and in some cases are fully customisable. Our customers tend to be anyone who loves to find a special piece of furniture to update, add some personality or finish a room. Because we are a boutique retailer we only carry limited numbers of all items and some pieces truly are one of a kind,” said owner Elaine Ellis.
“Nearly 4 years ago my husband Robert and I embarked on a huge adventure together…We left our home in Dublin Ireland, moved to the other side of the world, leaving behind our family and friends and started a new life in Perth. Since arriving we haven’t looked back! We’ve made some very special friends, built our own home and welcomed our little boy Henry into the world. It really has been a wonderful experience,” Elaine remarked.
“We had always wanted to run our own business but had never quite found a niche or something that made us feel excited. Since having Henry, it became even more important to us to create a future for our family that was fun and flexible.
We loved the idea of owning a business that was creative yet practical…We discovered that furniture was our passion and so our dream of running a family business became a reality when we opened the doors of Henry & Oliver Co. in
