Our story

How it all began...

Oliver Bonas is mostly about you, but this is About Us

It started as Olly bringing back gifts for friends from his travels abroad: interesting things from interesting places. Then came the first shop, opened in Fulham in 1993. Now there are 44 Oliver Bonas stores in London, Bristol, Cambridge, Brighton, Reading and Scotland, as well as our online store. We are turning 21 in September 2014 and will be celebrating…

Our product range is eclectic. Women's clothing, accessories, jewellery, things for the home, furniture and the odd item that resists categorising. Many of our products are designed in house - we have our own ranges of  accessories,  jewellery and  homewares. Our most significant launches have been 'Poem', our range of women’s clothing, and our stunning, upholstered furniture in velvet and cotton.

Olly is still at OB and his love for design and passion for seeking out the unusual remain the guiding principles of the business. These days he's helped out by an amazing team of talented and passionate people. We have fun and get excited by great design and fresh thinking, and like to think our customers feel the same way when they visit our shops and this website.

Any thoughts? We love feedback. Pop in to one of our shops, or contact us at orders@oliverbonas.com
