Coexistence is 50

1 May 2024 marked our 50th Anniversary!

In contemplating this significant milestone, our co-founders share their thoughts. Mary said:

‘50 years ago it seemed like a good idea to open a shop to promote good design and craftsmanship!

A lot has changed over the years in the way we do this, but this design ethic is something that is key to all we have done and are still maintaining!’

Similarly, Ross said:

‘Coexistence was established as we wanted to encourage British product design, particularly furniture and lighting. Having succeeded in meeting this objective, we see Coexistence today as helping to raise the UK’s design bar even higher.’

Thank you to all our past and current team, suppliers, clients, and friends for your support and help along the way.
