About Us

Welcome to the creative world of dwell.

  • Our history

    dwell was founded in 2003 by design enthusiast Aamir Ahmad.

    It all started with the notion that it was difficult to find designer-inspired furniture at affordable price points. Initially, dwell was created for urban dwellers who wanted pieces that made a statement in their living spaces and a talking point with friends.

    Aamir understood his customers and their need for instant gratification. See it. Want it. Get it. Aamir created a culture and in-store experience that was design-led, celebrating individuality and creativity.

    dwell was acquired by British retail group DFS in 2014.

  • To me, dwell is more than just furniture. Our homes allow us to express who we are. Finding objects for the home should be a constant and exciting voyage of self-discovery.

    Peter Jenkins, CEO

  • What we do
