Lift Store Southwold


Our shop...

We are Lift: an independent home accessory and lifestyle store in Southwold that’s devoted to sourcing and creating well-designed, functional items for your home and for you. Everything we stock is bold, bright and uplifting and often Danish or Japanese inspired.

Lift was born a few years ago whilst living and working in London. After a visit to Southwold for a weekend I instantly fell in love and decided it was the place for me to pursue my dream of having my own shop. After a relocation and some serious planning we finally opened in Southwold in June 2017.

I’m David and Lift is my shop. I’ve worked in retail since leaving university, working for Muji, Selfridges and Paperchase in Manchester, then managing the shops at the National Gallery in London and most recently, London Zoo. I’ve always worked with big teams and for other people, so doing it for myself has been an exciting challenge. I do the planning and designing, and everything is made by my wonderful mum (Anne) in her workshop.

We have lots more exciting brands in our shop in Southwold, but for now the website is exclusively for product we make. We stock many other brands in our Southwold shop such as Areaware, Super Good and Block Homewares, Compaine De Provence fragrances, Acorn and Will accessories, Jewellery from Claudia Made This and Beth Pegler, Cards from Paul Farrel, Brie Harrison, Miss Shelly Designs and much much more. We like to keep things moving so you'll always find something new, exciting and uplifting instore...
