Minimalism has outlasted other home interior trends because it’s about more than a style. It’s about a feeling.

‘Less is more’ wouldn’t be such a cliché if it weren’t true. But countless studies have found that decluttering your home and discernibly decorating works wonders for your mental health.

And when décor is not only minimalist in style but also in its environmental footprint, its appeal is limitless.

Which leads us nicely onto The Northern Wood Company.

Founded in Newcastle upon Tyne in 2019 by entrepreneurs Ryan and Jack – whose specialisms lie in graphic design and woodwork respectively – The Northern Wood Company are all about creating simple, eco-conscious pieces intended to calm.

Inspired by the Northumberland landscape that surrounds them, Ryan and Jack hand-make all their products with the intention of harnessing some element of local and outstanding natural beauty.

This love of the natural world also informs their choice of materials. The Northern Wood Company’s entire collection is made from sustainably sourced products, which are always vegan and cruelty-free. Their candles and wax melts are made with a rapeseed and coconut wax blend and their wood is also sourced sustainably.

Their products are stored and delivered in eco-friendly packaging, too – which includes no plastic – and are entirely developed, tested, created, packed and shipped by Jack and Ryan from Newcastle. Their dedication to doing their bit to protect the environment is also clear when you discover that 10% from every product sold is donated to a forest or woodland charity in the UK.

So, when it next comes to showing your home some love, why not give a little to our planet, too?
