Soren's House was set up in 2016 to bring beautiful Scandinavian inspired design products to the UK.
Everything changed in December 2017, when our beautiful, 6 year old son, Seth, was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma (Burkitt's). We closed the store on the day of his diagnosis to concentrate on getting him back to health, and to looking after our beautiful, 8 year old daughter, Seren. Once Seth's chemotherapy finished eight months later, we had the amazing news that he was cancer free and would now have monthly check ups, but could return to some kind of normal life, including school.
So at this stage, we decided to re-open the store to help us all get back to some kind normality. But we had totally changed. As a family, we were bonded in a way that I cannot describe. We wanted to spend more time together, and cherish every single day. Normal has never been so beautiful. We wanted a simple, slow lifestyle and childhood for Seren and Seth - we want them to have the room to be creative, imaginative and to learn about this wonderful world that we live in, and to go outside as much as possible. As a family, we are so much more aware of the products that we buy and the food that we eat, so we decided that this has to be the direction that we take the store in too. So from now on, we are concentrating on more natural materials, organic and eco-friendly products, that fit our ethos of a simple, magical childhood. We hope that you like our little store : )
