Who We Are-
Over the last 15 years, Rosie Lee has worked with some awesome brands - and along the way we’ve been lucky enough to have worked with and get to know some amazing creative talents too.
As a result of the diversity of our work, our partners naturally span various disciplines including furniture design, illustration, copywriting, photography…and many more.
We wanted to showcase the talent of the people who inspire us, and bring their products together into an unholy collection of infinite objects, and so we designed and built this store. We might not be able to succinctly or consistently explain to you why each object has been selected for the store except that they all make us say ‘Whoa!’. Hopefully some of them make you say ‘Whoa!’ too.
