Coronavirus Update – We are temporarily closed x

These are very challenging times and we would like to extend our best wishes to you.
This new and unusual situation, sweeping our fragile world, requires us to prioritise the health of our Lathams family, and dramatically adapt our daily routines.
We are stepping up measures for this changing situation and have taken the decision to close our two stores, offices & online shop temporarily.
In a daily changing world, we are doing our utmost to maintain our excellent service, and will adapt as we can, to meet requirements.
Our Dad established Lathams, 49 years ago with a vision to inspire people with beautiful things for their homes. Since then we have endured a number of economic crises, and are still going strong, planning exciting celebrations for our 50 th Anniversary, next year.
In the meantime, you can find us on Instagram and Facebook, where we will be sharing inspirational posts and our latest news.
We know the coming days and weeks are full of uncertainty and our thoughts go out to you and your families.
We are all in this together, stay safe.
With love
Chris, Liz and Sarah
(Company Directors)

Our story…

Our Lathams love story began 4 decades ago in 1971 when Peter Hellmers, architect, indulged his love for home design by launching the homes and gardens store in Epping.

Now continued by the second generation of the Hellmers family we contribute a combined wealth of experience in fashion, textile design, interior decorating and furniture restoration. Over the years we have evolved our house style and now offer our own ‘Lathams With Love’ and ‘Lathams Luxury’ ranges. Designed in house our own label furniture and soft furnishings, are manufactured by local artisans. We also source beautiful products from around the world but love to buy British and support small business as much as possible.

10 years ago our Interior design studio was born at the request of our customers. Here we recreate the Lathams look tailoring it to our clients lifestyles and homes.

We are passionate about home interiors and how they reflect and effect our moods and our lives. Forever on a mission to spread some Lathams love.
