This Little Love was launched by directors Shane and Hayley Neal in May 2014, with the hope of filling a large gap in their local regional market for style savvy and design loving parents. A carefully curated online store, stocking some of the most loved kids brands as well as our own children’s bed range, This Little Love cemented it’s place as one of the leading in Children’s Decor and Design market here in Australia.
After a few short months of operating online, we realised that we were at maximum capacity running out of our parents house and decided to make the leap into our very own studio, right here in the Illawarra. Affectionately named This Little Studio, it is a multi-use creative space where we come to work everyday to brainstorm new ideas and meet with design clients. Our studio is also large enough to store inventory and serve as a fully functioning photographic studio. It was this move at the beginning of 2015 that enabled us to take the our house beds to the next level and keep up with the interest and attention our designs were getting.
Our second edition TLH was introduced in November 2014 and is our greatest achievement to date. It is the design we currently sell and is in more than 800 homes (and counting!) across Australia. Made of a sturdy aluminium, each bed is lovingly hand crafted in our very own workshop here in the Illawarra. The temptation to give in to an overseas manufacturer has always been there, but in our hearts we know that this decision was right for us and our local industry and we couldn’t be prouder to say that our beds are locally designed and manufactured! Over the past couple of years, we’ve had the blessing of sourcing and playing with some of the best and most beautiful children’s products on the market today. Of course that means that our kids get one of almost everything (lucky kids!) but it also means that we’ve had the opportunity to style and their rooms countless times. While we’re the very first to admit that we definitely aren’t experts, we are naturals, and we would love nothing more than to help you create a magical space for your own little love. You can send us an email to enquire about our design services!
We can’t wait to see where 2017 and beyond takes us, and we can only hope you’ll come along for the ride If you would like to know more about This Little Love, the people behind it, or any of our fabulous products, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
