The site brings together a curated collection of pieces for the home from around the world.

“I wanted to establish Wright & Smith because I am passionate about beautiful design. I love beautiful things and learning about who has made them and how they are made. I want to discover the magic ingredient that takes something from well-made to exceptionally crafted, from useful to indispensable, from pleasing to beautiful.

“To my mind, an object's real value lies in the skill, the design and the craftsmanship that has gone into producing it. And this is what we show to our customers at Wright & Smith. We are here to help customers make an informed choice about their purchase and enjoy connecting with the people who have made it,” says founder of Wright & Smith, Sasha Young.
