bower & beyond is the brainchild of Sophie Gilder, a mother of four, a farmer's daughter, and a sometime investment banker with a life-long love of design.
Growing up on a remote rural property, she had one of nature's finest designers on her doorstep - a satin bower bird kept a carefully curated bower in the homestead garden. The bower was a study in thoughtful design, and sowed the first seeds of her design philosophy.
Fast forward a few decades, and bower & beyond was established on the principle that everything in your domestic sphere should be either beautiful or useful - but preferably both. Our growing collection for home & child evidences our belief in enduring quality and sustainable style, which co-exist happily with practicality and playfulness.
