ModeLi is an independent furniture retailer, born in the UK during the first Covid lockdown. Like a lot of people my partner, Luca, and I began working from home during lockdown. After a few weeks of writing emails on our sofa and attending zoom meetings from the kitchen table, we decided to commit to assembling our own home office space.
We both work in architecture, and are passionate about the work of great designers. We are also very conscious of our carbon footprint, and try to be considerate of the planet in everything we do. With all this in mind we began our online hunt for office furniture, and we were amazed with what we found.
So many skilled artists, innovative craftspeople and designers across the country and the continent are designing beautiful furniture, and we felt quite overwhelmed by the outstanding range of options available. We started a blog of all our favourite pieces, which soon became a website, and thus ModeLi furniture was born.
Our collection initially focussed on home office furniture, however as demand has grown so have we. We are now looking at all manner of eye catching furniture pieces, and have extended our offer to all types of furniture.
Although the business is growing far quicker than we ever could have hoped or expected, we will always remain committed to the philosophy that we began with; finding thoughtfully crafted furniture that is functional, elegant and timeless. Pieces that make us sit up and take notice - from the notorious simplicity of the Scandinavian style, to understated yet ornate mid-century sculptural silhouettes. We absolutely refuse to engage with the cheap modern disposable attitudes that pervade a lot of online retailers.
Alongside this, we ensure that any brand or designer we work with matches our own philosophies. This means ensuring care and consideration for all workers, and maintaining an eco-conscious outlook on all productivity. As we are so determined to make environmental awareness a cornerstone of everything we do, for every item we sell we donate a tree to Ecologi.
Above all else we want you, our customer, to feel valued by our service. We hope that you’re able to see something in our collection that catches your eye, and we are dedicated to offering you a personal, friendly service, and a gratifying shopping experience.
Thank you so much for stopping by to learn more about ModeLi. We hope you enjoy our collection as much as we do.

And all the ModeLi team
