SeekandAdore.com brings together the work of designer makers with people looking to discover and buy unique and beautiful things. We make it easy and more personal to buy original pieces – from homewares, jewellery and fashion accessories to fresh and affordable handmade gift ideas. Our collection continually evolves.
Everything we sell is made by a real artist, each product tells a story. Meet the people behind the products, learn about their skills, be inspired by their work, share their passion. When you shop with us you buy direct from our designer makers. Dealing direct means you get great value and the lion’s share of what you pay goes to the person who made the piece. That seems right to us.
Every piece we sell has been lovingly selected and we’re full of ideas for making them part of your life. We’ve searched high and low so you don’t have to. All you have to do is type in our name:

Meet the Team
Hatty Fawcett, Founder
Hatty has spent longer than she cares to remember working in marketing and e-commerce. She’s developed marketing strategies that have helped a wide range of brands to grow, including the BBC, EBTM.com (a start-up internet fashion retailer), Moonpig.com and most recently Woolworths.co.uk. When looking to decorate two rooms in a new loft conversion Hatty realised how difficult it is to find beautiful, original homewares and accessories and thought it was time to make it easier.
Daniel Goode, Chief Seeker, Homewares
Daniel has trained in a number of artistic fields including theatre, ceramics and art. He developed a love of studio pottery when he studied throwing, sculpture and design. He collects studio pottery and has a passion for seeking out pieces by talented but obscure makers. Daniel recognises that not everyone has the time to do this and he’s delighted to be raising the profile of artists, designer-makers and crafts people whilst also making it easier for customers to find distinctive and unusual work on Seek & Adore.
Martyn Allen, Brandkeeper
With over 18 years experience in branding, design and advertising, with 9 of those leading in-house creative teams within major retail brands; there’s not much Martyn doesn’t know about using design to create the perfect customer journey. But brand strategy is only half the story and he likes nothing more than admiring a well kerned serif or a beautifully lit still life!
Paul Lansbury, Safekeeper
Paul is a Chartered Accountant and was Finance Director of Moonpig.com until December 2011. Previously he worked at Gillette UK and KPMG.
He’s had lots of experience growing small businesses having been at Moonpig.com from the early days – and he also ran his own gift shop in
in Brighton. He can’t resist beautiful things!
Rebecca Strain, Maker Cherisher
