About Us

About Us.

Founded by Rhianna and Jules Miller, Mode Abode is a family-run business born in Brighton, during the Lockdown of 2021. 

Both mother and daughter have art direction, image creation & textile design backgrounds and a shared love of vintage and eclectic interiors. 

Like many families during the lockdown, their family home in Brighton needed to be reimagined into a place where the family could both live and work. Using found vintage fabric, (Rhianna had been a student of Textile Design at college), reclaimed furniture (and anything they could upcycle) the home was given a make-over to accommodate the family of four adults all needing a space to work and somewhere to relax.

By replacing plain and boring cushions with some handmade eye-catching scatter cushions, sofas were given a new lease of life. While upstairs all bedrooms were re-themed as somewhere to truly unwind. Wall Art was chosen to set the scene along with a few pillows in soft calming colours. This vision of what could be done to achieve a home makeover without the big ticket spend led Jules and Rhianna to begin working on creating their very own homeware business, Mode Abode.

British Made Sustainability.

It was important to Rhianna and Jules that Mode Abode products should be both beautiful and well-made, equally important was that the manufacturers they chose to work with were British-based.

Since its launch in 2021, everything sold by Mode Abode is British-made and Made-to-Order. Less waste, more sustainability. The inks used for all fabric printing are water-based and the newest offerings of cushion covers are 100% organic cotton. Products are beautifully and carefully UK MADE, rather than being mass produced and then shipped from on the other side of the world.

Supporting British Artists.

Most recently Rhianna and Jules have begun to collaborate with other artists to produce some truly original homeware designs. Some of these artists are professionals others are new and emerging talents. Most importantly, every time you purchase a cushion featuring the work of one of these talented artists, they receive a percentage of the sale.  

 Why We’re Different.

Mode Abode’s mission is to discover the undiscovered, rediscover the forgotten and take a fresh look at the overlooked. We are inspired by art from the past and enthused by new emerging talents in the creative industries. 

Consumers deserve the opportunity to buy more British-made goods. We believe that now is the perfect time for this to happen. Exciting stuff if you’re bored with the same-old-same-old that high street stores have to offer. 

Our products might take a little longer to get to you. They are all made to order by our talented and professional manufacturers, based in Britain. Real people make our products - and we truly believe, that’s always worth the wait.
