This Little Love was launched by husband and wife 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 start experimenting with materials and take our house beds to the next level – we had to keep up with the interest and attention our designs were getting!
2017 has been a big year for us here at TLL, with a necessary move into a bigger warehouse + workshop (maybe we should call this This BIG warehouse?!) and bringing back an old favourite. 2017 also saw TLL’s first collaboration! After working closely with Belinda Kurtz of Petite Interior Co, the world’s largest Children’s Design Studio, a one-of-a-kind children’s desk with our signature house shape was created – The Asher Desk!
We can’t wait to see where 2018 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.
