MADE.COM is on a mission to offer great design direct from the makers.  There's now 150 of us and we are still hiring new talents every week. 

Our philosophy is to leverage the Internet to apply the economy of scale in manufacturing, so that even the most beautiful and high-end design will eventually become accessible and affordable to every one. 

We started MADE with the belief that we will be able to revolutionise the home furnishing industry, which is gigantic in size but extremely opaque and slow moving. Attitude and courage are the qualities with which we think we are making a difference. 

Here are a few of our values, 

We don't want to do just the same. Our business model is about challenging the conventions and creating a brand from scratch; our supply chain has been designed to minimise stock and maximise efficiency, in a way no other retailers have dared. Our marketing, creative and design team take great pride in making our photos and communication material stand out, look fresh, with the intention to always delight our customers. 

Attention to detail: 
This means we care. No small things are overlooked and every detail is important, no matter the domain, let it be numbers, creativity or services.
