Design for furniture and lighting

Vieva designs | beautifully made and made to last

Vieva – a different kind of design consultancy

Vieva is unique as an interiors and product design house, having a full upholstery workshop for manufacture and prototyping on site at our design studio base in Oxford.

Our production facility is staffed by master upholsterers and furniture makers with decades of experience. This enables us to control the prototyping and development of projects at every stage of the design process.

Home of the Humptie

Humpties, like all unique Vieva designs, are beautifully made and made to last. We use only the finest fabrics and leathers for the removable and washable covers and the inner is filled with sustainable 100% British wool. They are handmade by our master upholsters in our Oxford workshop and are guaranteed to keep their shape for years to come.

Available in 45cm|60cm|75cm|90cm sizes Humpties are for putting your feet up and relaxing, while the larger sizes make beautiful informal seating.

Stratum lamps

A stunning lamp base destined to be a modern classic. A modular hand-assembled design using flame-polished translucent acrylics and bespoke machined and anodised metal components. Stratum lamps are available in 6 colourways with a linen shade.


Pi and Pi2 modular seating

A beautifully realised contemporary range of seat/table units designed for use in hotels, corporate environments, office breakout areas etc. Pi and Pi2 both use luxurious Italian leather seat pads that are uniquely secured using our invisible magnetic system.

Segment modular seating

A radical seating concept for large spaces (receptions, lobbies, foyers) comprising a range of modular units (straight and 90°) which when combined with the slot-in feature units create a a totally unique design. Made from the same high quality materials as the Pi range, Segment can be specified with a selection of handmade, veneered wood inserts.

Vieva design thinking

Our philosophy is to design beautiful, desirable products that work, and will enhance any space in which they are used. Once you have a Humptie in your living room it’s hard to imagine life without it – hence the ‘new best friend’ tagline.

Craftsman quality

Vieva products use top quality materials at all stages of the manufacturing process. From our own highly skilled master upholsterers at our workshop in Oxford to the ex-violin maker who produces the stunning hand veneered wood inserts for the Pi range of seats/tables.


We hate the ‘throw away’ culture that often seems to pervade modern life and are passionate about making products that will last a lifetime and more. Wherever possible we use sustainable materials, from our 100% British wool for Humptie inners to the FSC certified wood used for the inserts on the Pi range of seat/table units.
