The Minimalist was created in 2011 by Leah Taylor with a single goal, to source the most unique, limited and hand made pieces for the home from a global collective of designers and makers.

In a world where life is overtaken by the mass-produced, by law of contrast, we are eager to discover slower processes and to surround ourselves with long-lasting objects that have a story and meaning.

Supporting those with unique skill, making things by hand to supporting the brands that share our passion for quality craftsmanship, good, thoughtful design and manufacturing with a conscience.  Here you can explore the products, the people and their stories.

Whatever is done with knowledge and care will inevitably be of better quality, and its beauty will increase with the passing of time. A bowl made from a soft and silky textured rubber, a subtle woven linen throw or that small batch piece that only you and a few others will ever own.
