In the Press
Our history is in our namesake: with our first store featuring rustic wooden floors and a barn-style door in a busy metropolitan area, the name Urban Barn was a perfect fit.
At Urban Barn, we search the world to discover inspiration for our colours, prints, textures and ideas, but also make sure we find inspiration close to home from our customers. With a sense of curiosity, discovery and delight, we love to help people feel confident and excited about the products they buy for their home. From our first store which opened in 1990, to our 55 stores across the country, we aim to deliver value, quality and great design to make you feel right at home.
For more information on our history and values, please see Our Story.
