How did it all start?

When our French-born founder, Stephanie, relocated from New York to London, a love story ensued with the British tradition of craftsmanship.

A lawyer by day and often by night, Stephanie understood that quality sleep was vital to recharging and facing a new day of challenges.

With her grandmother Josephine as her source of inspiration, Stephanie founded Josephine Home (recently rebranded as London & Avalon) and began her pursuit of the finest fabrics that would always give that soothing feeling of sinking into exquisite bedding at the end of a long day.

Drawing from the timeless elegance of Savile Row, renowned for its British craftsmanship and impeccably neat stitching, Josephine Home launched its signature grosgrain detailing reminiscent of Savile Row tailoring. This refined design has become synonymous with our brand, embodying timelessness and simplicity.

Since then, the range of products we offer has evolved, but our commitment to sustainable luxury, unwavering quality, and enduring craftsmanship has remained steadfast, shaping every aspect of our company ethos.

Always evolving

In 2020, we spent time reflecting on the key cornerstones of the Josephine Home brand, and our business’ growth since its beginnings in 2003.

We saw how far we had come in 16 years, in becoming the trusted supplier of linen and home accessories to discerning clients and renowned businesses in all corners of the world.

It felt like the right time to mark this evolution with a change at the heart of our brand. So, at the beginning of 2022, we relaunched as London & Avalon.

Our name today reflects the world of sleep and interiors, elegantly weaving together our two enduring inspirations - the refined and timeless style of London’s Savile Row tailoring, and the dreamy wilds of Avalon, the mythical island of peace and serenity.
