The Monocle Book of Homes
Good homes are places where lives can unfold, families grow up, dogs jump on sofas, friends share your hospitality. They should also be places where you can find some solitude – a quiet corner to read a book, have a Saturday afternoon nap. In short, they need to be able to sustain you, inspire you and tell your story thanks to their architecture, use of materials and contents.
These are the attributes that Monocle has always celebrated when covering residences in its design and architecture pages – whether featuring a city bolthole, a modernist seaside residence or a summer outpost in a forest. Now Monocle is bringing this all together in one book that explores individual homes, housing projects old and new, communities of self-builders, even whole neighbourhoods where a simple philosophy of building well has created quality of life for many. Monocle has also recruited key thinkers, writers and designers to share their perspectives in a series of fascinating essays.
The Monocle Book of Homes is packed with great photography that delivers the bigger picture and also offers a focus on the smallest details. This is a book that could change how you live.
We are very concious about the materials that we use in our production. We use Organic cotton, recycled polyester, vegan approved fabrics and our manufacturing is of very high standards so your product lasts longer than fast fashion brands. As our products are all made to order there is a production to delivery time of approx 3-5 working days.
We have teamed up with Verdn to help recover 1kg (the equivalent of 80 plastic bottles) of ocean bound plastic for every single item that you order. Looking rad and helping to keep our oceans clean has never been so easy.
We use Planet to neutralize our shipping emissions and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.
For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, we ensure that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.
There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal
technologies in different stages of development. These technologies
include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon
sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture
