About us

UpsideDownDesign is a unique independent interior design space on Bootham situated just a few moments away from the historic city walls. 

If you're looking for inspiration for your home, we offer a versatile range of services and products including an interior design service and a made to measure service for curtains and blinds, upholstery cushions and throws.

The shop is not just for those looking to modify their home, it’s a veritable feast for those of you looking for gifts (or to treat themselves of course)  We always like to have something for everyone. As well as cushions and throws we have certified organic cosmetics from Meraki, beauty and fashion accessories, candles, books, games and stationery. 

For the foodies out there we have Gourmet food ingredients from Nicholas Vahe, and for the little ones in your life we have a beautiful selection of children's toys from Maileg and Moulin Roty. Although we source alot from all over the globe we still love to support local, we currently have a range of cards, prints and lighting from local artists and craftspeople.
