About The Way We Live London

As a small family business we offer a delightful range of unique and unusual handmade wash basins.

The Way We Live London is born from a belief that even the most functional items can be an expression of your style and personality – yes, even a basin!

Our curated range of eclectic, unique, playful, handcrafted basins have been carefully selected to create a diverse collection of styles to suit an array of interior schemes meaning that your basin can now be something to be treasured and admired.

Inspired by intricate and interesting patterns, textures and colours, we scour the globe for our unique designs.

Each basin is made using the finest quality porcelain together with fine particles of quartz for maximum strength. They are then hand glazed and fired three times for enhanced durability. Many of the basins are hand painted and created using traditional artisan texturing techniques.

We have also designed a range of handmade vanity units using the finest quality English Ash by a highly skilled team of craftsmen.

Our Story

How it all began....

Launched in 2020, the first seed of the idea for our business came about after a long search for our very own unique, playful, statement basin during our house renovation in 2019. After eventually finding our dream basin we realised that we could make it easier to bring these beautiful products to everyone. However, it wasn't until the pandemic hit and we lost all our work in the events industry that we truly had the time to launch ourselves into our lifelong passion for interiors and make our dream a reality.

Within the first four months of launching the business, we had already been interviewed on BBC Radio detailing our start up journey, with our products featuring in many leading industry magazines including Grand Designs, Livingetc, Real Homes and Homes & Gardens with more and more features in the interior press coming out monthly.

We pride ourselves on exceptional customer experience which has been reflected in the fantastic reviews we have received.

Our Products


  • "Bought two Alfie basins from The Way We Live London and was really impressed with the service and the quality of the product. Sarah was super helpful and flexible and gave us good advice. It was not the usual cold online transaction, but had the same personal touch you would experience in a physical shop. The basins were reasonably priced for the excellent quality of the product and the online photos show exactly how the Alfie basin looks. "

  • "The two basins are not yet installed but are stunning and I know they will look fab! Sarah's customer service was excellent too - she was very personable, quick to respond on email to my queries before I purchased the basins and incredibly helpful - including going to the effort of taking extra photos of the basins for me to help me decide which ones to buy."

  • "Sarah was incredibly helpful with my purchase. She answered all my questions over the phone and then went the extra mile with emails giving me suggestions regarding potential taps and a basin waste. The basin arrived beautifully packaged and it is even more stunning than I had imagined. I ordered the Laurence. Thank you so much."
