Our story

Mother-daughter duo, Cassie and Bev, opened Room 356 in October 2014 with a shared vision to create a homeware store working closely with independent brands, designers and makers. Our intention was and is to offer a curated collection of handmade goods alongside a real appreciation and wish to support smaller businesses and creatives.

The ‘Name’ is where it all began when we opened our physical store in Bolton in October 2014: 356 being the number of the address of our retail property. The dream was to create an online store and retail space with a unique identity. We wanted to offer you the ultimate shopping experience, and to make each and everyone of you feel valued. As a Room 356 customer you really are at the heart and soul of our business. The space in our store has been thoughtfully laid out and each of our collections carefully selected with you in mind.

We have a pared-back minimal aesthetic, offering products which are understated and at the same time beautiful and timeless. We love to discover exciting new items to add to our stylish collections. We choose homeware, lighting, lifestyle and gift items which will enhance your home and also complement your individual lifestyle. Above all we want to offer you products which exude good design and originality.
