'Step away from the ordinary and furnish your home with truly unique pieces.'

Uniche has rebranded and calls itself House Junkie. The inferred associations are still right on the nose at the furniture and homewares site, that really is the latest buzzword in sharp, industrial design. When we first stumbled acrossed House Junkie, as its now know, we were immediately struck by the high quality, high concept design ethos on offer; the kind of urban styling so beloved of contemporary interiors, marked out by vintage industrial furniture and home accessories. If you’re looking for a helping hand sourcing products that will give your home the look of a seriously hip boutique hotel, or an upmarket members' club in the heart of Soho, then this is where you’ll find them.


As mentioned is comprehensive. Cushions, mirrors, storage and display solutions; beautiful leather armchairs, wrought iron tables, cabinets, stools, leather sling chairs – all imbued with the kind of cutting edge NY warehouse inspired aesthetic that is so beloved of urbanites, well the world over. There’s also a Scandinavian & Nordic style to some of the products, with a great side line in lighting.


Is certainly at the forefront, as a family run business you can be sure that the team will give you the personal touch. Founders Mark Bentham and Laura Lane have done their utmost to create a virtual world where every detail has been carefully considered. No surprises they’ve garnered a slew of press on the site, with features in almost all the interiors glossies.


If it’s the vintage, reclaimed look you’re after, then we suggest you 'step away from the ordinary and furnish your home with truly unique pieces that blend with your lifestyle and dare to be different,’ that’s the ethos – and the site more than lives up to its manifesto.
