Andrassy Living started out as an online homeware store because although I’ve dipped in and out of the world of interior design over the years, it’s the final flourishes that I get excited about – a beautiful hand block-printed cushion; a set of colourful glasses; or a new tablecloth with coordinating napkins - always on my wish list!

Since starting the website though, I have always dreamt of opening a bricks & mortar store alongside my online shop and that dream has now been realised!  Andrassy Living is now open in Ilminster, Somerset every Wednesday to Friday 10am until 5pm and Saturdays 10am until 3pm.  It’s been a rapid learning curve as I’ve never owned a shop and it’s just me so I have no-one to bounce ideas around with or take over when I’m sick (although my husband does a very good job when needed) but so far it's been a brilliant adventure.

I introduced womenswear to the shop in Ilminster at the beginning of 2023 and although I only stock a small amount, it’s a carefully curated collection of great quality, seasonless fashion that I hope you will wear again and again and feel utterly fabulous in.

Andrassy Living is all about beautiful, high quality products that stand out from the crowd. I only stock it if I really love it but if there’s something you’re after that I don’t have, please get in touch – I’d love to hear from you. 

I love that feeling you get when you stumble upon a fabulous independent store selling individual and beautiful things to transform you and your living space - that “I’ve got to have it” moment. 

I’m extremely passionate about retail and the high street as I believe that people still crave a personal service, to be able to see, touch and feel the products they’re investing their hard-earned money in and to walk away feeling that they have been well looked after.  I hope that you feel this way about Andrassy Living.                           

Look forward to seeing you in Ilminster soon.

Best wishes, Sophie

p.s. For all those wondering, Andrassy is my maiden name - just couldn't let it go!
