" For the daydreamers, may your feet never touch the ground"-
The House of L.E.A.F
The House Of Leaf Is a sustainably sourced collection of products designed by creator Lorna Finnegan. Inspired by her fashion design training in Milan, her passion for people and how they experience the world has led to her desire to design collections that are steeped in whimsy and curiosity. That, once experienced, become more than what they are perceived to be, in a very individual way.
Lorna has always been inquisitive and thoughtful. She wanted to experience the world and live a life less ordinary and this led her to move to Milan at the age of 18 to pursue a career in fashion design under the tutelage of some of the best minds in Europe. Her experiences in Milan honed her skills as a designer but also exposed her to the sides of the industry that didn’t align with her values and she kept this need for authenticity with her when she set up the House of Leaf in 2016. For Lorna, fashion and design is a way of translating your thoughts, curiosities and daydreams into a visual and tangible story that can connect with people. She wants people to pick up a piece from her collection and feel the energy of the “Ah ha” moment that inspired it. Her designs are intended to complement and elevate the lives of those that see, touch and own them. “I want to push the boundaries on delivering the design concept to the customer. Creating a whole experience around the product, from the artwork to poems, quotes and storytellin
What We Do
The House Of Leaf is a door into the mind and the creative energy of its founder, Lorna Finnegan. As children we were masters at seeing the magic and the fascination of the world around us and at The House of Leaf, we endeavour to bring that perspective back. We want to create a safe and playful space for people to feel, be it joy, vulnerability, mischief, chaos, reflection… The House Of Leaf is a movement towards expression and belonging and each of our collections reflects that freedom and whimsy. Our products will mean different things to different people and that is the whole purpose. We want them to move beyond being products and become an extension of yourself.
Our Core Values
Authenticity & Unconditional Love
This might sound ambitious but what’s wrong with that? If we were all brave enough to be our authentic selves, safe in the knowledge that we would be accepted unconditionally, what wouldn’t we have the courage to say, do, feel and wear! The House of Leaf follows its own path when it comes to the creative process and the development of memorable connections and we want you to be able to experience that when you engage with our brand but we also want you to take that emotion with you and interpret it and embrace it in your own way.
Our Core Values
We take great care when designing pieces and concepts to ensure that they have a meaning deeper than their physical presence. The world is full of mysticism and whimsy and we try to embody our collections with that energy so that they remind you of past experiences, emotions, stories, images and so on, and make new connections with your present and future. We want you to love your House of Leaf belongings and see them as an extension of your personality, something you wear or use when you are feeling playful or vulnerable. Something you share to let someone know that you know them and this represents them in your eyes.
