Rare Device is, simply, good stuff for you and your home, featuring design-led objects, furniture and home decor, art books, clothing for men and women, and a great selection of bags, jewelry and other accessories. The store promotes designers, artists and artisans plus helps them grow by commissioning new projects and collaborations.

Every object in the store has its own story, and has been chosen because it is either handmade, well-designed, useful, beautiful or all of the above. The aesthetic is modern and quirky while remaining warm and inviting - design that is accessible to all.

Rare Device is also a gallery with monthly receptions for emerging artists in the fields of drawing, painting, photography and mixed media. Check the website for the show schedule.
