A vintage inspired homewares company selling unique and eclectic products that are practical but also beautiful for the home and garden. We want to create unique and beautiful homes, we are always expanding our collections to bring an eclectic mix of 'New' and 'Best Sellers' that have the power to transform any space.
My mum Pru started Biggie Best in Cape Town (hence the pic), South Africa almost 25 years ago. After starting out with just one store selling fabrics and made up items she grew the business into an international homeware brand. She was named South Africa's business woman of the year, has written numerous books on home decorating and is well regarded as the country’s foremost home decor expert. She continues to run South Africa’s largest independent home decor retail chain.
Due to demand for Biggie Best items overseas she opened an office and distribution centre in the UK. From here we have supplied home decor products to over 50 countries with clients ranging from small independent outlets to international department store chains. Seeking a new challenge after starting my career at Walmart and spending 5 years in China and India, I moved to the UK to oversee our overseas office in 2008. Together, my mum and I travel far and wide to source new exciting products and meet new suppliers. I don’t think there is a factory in India or a cooperative in South Africa that we haven’t visited and we hope you will agree that we have uncovered a few hidden gems.
Predominantly a wholesaler to the trade, Biggie Best UK has recently entered the retail market with the purchase of the Lots of Living chain of stores. Whilst we feel this is an exciting opportunity for us to reach a broader audience who may not know Biggie Best, we will constantly provide an exclusive trade offering that we hope will provide the value that we have become known for.
