Our Story

Our Lathams love story began 5 decades ago in 1971
when, Peter Hellmers, architect, indulged his passion for home design by
launching the homes and gardens store in Epping.

Now continued by the second and third generations of the Hellmers
family, contributing a combined wealth of experience in; fashion, textile
design, interior decorating and furniture restoration bringing homes to life
for over 50 years.

Evolving over time, we have honed our ‘modern/classic’ style that has become
the signature of Lathams. Designed in house, our own label ‘Lathams with Love’ furniture
and soft furnishings, are all manufactured by specialised local artisans.

We also source beautiful products from around the world but love to buy
British and support small business as much as possible.

15 years ago, our Interior design studio was born at the request of our
customers. Here we recreate our Lathams signature style, tailoring it to our client’s
lifestyle and home.

We are passionate about home
interiors, how they reflect and effect our moods and our lives. Forever on a
mission to spread some Lathams love x
