Mythology is a furniture and homeware brand, run by Sam Pearson and Anna Kidel, dedicated to making exceptionally crafted objects from beautiful hardwoods grown in and around London.
Our passion for design grew out of our desire to furnish our home with beautiful furniture and objects. Initially setting up a business making and selling dining tables and benches from reclaimed wood, our repertoire rapidly expanded to encompass more diverse materials and making processes, always striving to find the perfect balance between form and function, colour and texture.
Living and working in East London, we are constantly inspired by the beautiful and diverse hardwoods that grow on our doorstep. We believe that creating and surrounding ourselves with objects which champion natural materials can be a great counterbalance to the stresses of city life.
We make our furniture from hardwoods milled from trees felled in and around London that would normally be chipped and burned, ensuring the carbon stays in the wood and giving these majestic trees a second life.
Since launching Mythology in 2019, we’ve been developing a range of made-to-order furniture and homeware objects, alongside working on bespoke commissions.
We donate to the UK charity Trees for Cities, to have a tree planted for each piece of furniture we sell.
