About Us

Essential Home is an innovative mid-century modern furniture brand that takes important historical and cinematographic references from the 1930s and 1960s and turns them into unique furnishing pieces. What started out as ‘Essentials’ in 2015, a furniture collection by the mid-century lighting brand DelightFULL, quickly grew to be one of the most elegant representations of mid-century modern design, thus creating a new name, and a new brand, Essential Home.
“Soon we understood that this collection had a life of its own. Essential Home’ eclectic style inspired us to create more and more. We could no longer keep it inside doors,” said one of the designers involved in the creation of Essential Home.
Essential Home is currently based in Porto, Portugal, but its alluring designs are present in the most important interior design centers around the world, including London, Paris and New York.

Essential Home gathers inspiration not only from the glamorous Hollywood life of the 1940s, but also from the everyday life that defined that mid-century generation. Simple details such as the sleek lines of a futuristic 1960s chair, or retro ads that defined an era can be pinpointed in iconic pieces such as ‘Monocles sideboard’.

Essential Home’s goal is to create the ultimate time traveling experience inside a single space. We want to take the strong reminiscent connotation of the 1930s and 1960s, and create the perfect blend between the past and the present by creating mid-century modern furniture pieces that include a contemporary twist.
It is by harmoniously balancing the ideals of masculine and feminine, classic and contemporary, that Essential Home is able to create the finest solutions for intimate and cozy ambiances that express elegance and luxury. Using nothing other than the highest-quality materials, Essential Home delivers the mid-century modern signature that makes it so irresistible.
