The company aims to feature a the most prominent every day design in its many forms. The name is in accordance with Virginia Woolf and the members of the Bloomsbury Set. That philosophy is at the essence of TLH’s ethos and is one of the main forces behind the founders’ belief that by combining a concept store and café under one roof.
