Cornwall Living 2018

A little introduction

With a unique style and for that individual home, where else other than Uneeka?

Unique – not only a common sentiment of customers experiencing the Uneeka environment, but also the perfect way to describe the identity and achievements of this innovative business. Brought to the Truro high street 12 years ago, Uneeka has grown from a small, independent venture in Lemon Street Market to a collection of four businesses occupying two sites, employing over 15 people and supporting the local community.

Set up before trends deemed it fashionable to ‘go organic’ or ‘support local business’ and ‘fair trade’, Uneeka created a space to offer ethical, fair trade products. Relationships were formed with like-minded suppliers, still used today, proving that when people work together, good things can happen.

Uneeka has stayed strong and grown steadily through challenging times for the high street, the team taking pride in listening to customers, building strong relationships, and, of course, moving with the times. Mango wood furniture and teak have proved popular, remaining in demand. Yet times have changes too, with Uneeka showcasing shabby chic and industrial styles, as customers have become more inspired, upcycling their own furniture.

The shop on City Road is a confidence booster for that ‘have a go’ attitude, with plenty of choice to inspire. From rugs to chalk paint, sofas to wardrobes, not to mention the huge selection of lighting, Uneeka has it covered. Boscawen Street offers those little gifts for every occasion including jewellery, candles, bags and more. Why not indulge in the café, while you ponder, featuring a fresh menu and a smile
with every order?

We ask Uneeka’s Director Jodi Skeleton his predictions for 2017. “I feel an Art Deco influence will be the next big trend. We are already seeing some great examples of that and I predict it will be an even stronger influence next year. The last few years have seen the industrial style thrive and I feel this will continue to be on-trend, along with the hints of coppers and rich colour we are already seeing.”

Uneeka continues to grow and for all of you that don’t live in Cornwall there are plans on the horizon to open another store outside of the county. In the meantime, why not check out the online shop?
