Red Candy

Welcome to the quirky and colourful homewares site whose battle cry is “Shut up, beige!”.

Set up in 2009, Red Candy’s initial aim was to be the world’s first red-only website. Every product they stocked – from clocks to candles and mugs to mirrors – was red. They soon encountered a problem, however. Their edit of funky red homewares was so popular that customers started begging for the introduction of more colours. The customers’ wish was their command – and today Red Candy stocks gifts and treasures for your home from every colour of the rainbow.

They say: “It’s no big secret that here at Red Candy we really hate beige. To us it encapsulates everything which is dull and boring in life, and quite frankly, we think it needs to pipe down! Our mission (is) to cut this lifeless shade down to size and fill our homes with lots of lovely colour instead!”

Here, we pick out six of their coolest wedding gifts.
