Urbansize was started by former lawyer Sallie King in 2015 when she moved into her 'postage stamp-sized' flat in Greenwich, southeast London and, frustrated at the lack of petite furniture basics, she decided to design her own.
She is building on a long tradition in the industry as she comes from a family of Devon-based furniture-makers and remembers riding her trike around the factory floor.
Sallie's first design (the floating bedside table) was created in response to the limited floorspace in urban flats, but we’ve since crafted a number of core pieces which offer a beautiful solution to decidedly snug spots. Without compromising on storage or aesthetics, each of our items is slightly narrower, shallower or smaller to fit where other furniture brands won’t, and we also champion a lot of floating options to emphasise openness where it’s most needed.
Urbansize strives to be an ecologically and ethically responsible company. Our oak is sustainably-sourced and made by hand in Europe. You can read more about our sustainability journey here.
We have grown to a small team of enthusiastic individuals who are all passionate about ethically produced furniture that lasts.
