About us

Purveyors of the very finest hand-crafted luxury Leather Gifts, Life of Riley was launched in 2007, by former John Lewis retail manager Sarah Kocher.

Fuelled by a passion to provide quality heritage pieces, that would be loved, cherished and passed down through the generations, Life of Riley now offers an impressive and comprehensive range, chosen with you, our customer, in mind.

Inspired by tradition and an attention to design, the carefully curated ranges, which currently include leather gifts for Men, Women, Storage Baskets and Boxes, Jewellery Boxes, Bar Ware and Desk Accessories, uniquely enable customers to style their homes with these beautiful and inspirational accessories. In addition, Life of Riley also offer an in-house, traditional personalisation service, where each treasured piece is carefully embossed by hand, adding precious emotional value and individual sentiment to each gift or special purchase.  

From the brand’s initial beginnings, which saw Sarah selling the collections at charity fairs where they instantly sold out, now in 2022 Life of Riley supply to world class shops, hotels, lifestyle boutiques, interior designers and discerning customers in the UK and across the world.

Impeccably stylish, luxurious and beautifully designed, these classic and timeless pieces, that all exude sophistication, practicality and durability, have placed Life of Riley as a destination shopping platform for both traditional and contemporary home owners. 

Sarah and her dedicated team are committed to sourcing new designs, to ensure that the perfect product or gift can always be found, to bring you distinguished accessories, that will never go out of style.

The luxury leather goods and personalised lifestyle gifts are all hand-antiqued in a rich Conker Brown or Dark Chocolate Brown with signature pieces from the range providing perfect gift ideas for weddings, birthdays or anniversaries, when leather is traditionally given. Customers also choose Life of Riley to celebrate landmark events such as graduations, or retirements or simply to refresh their homes, offices or a specific room with a new lamp or a storage basket.

Waxed Canvas gifts and candles can now be found online, also combining the very highest attention to detail, that now extends to everything that Life of Riley represent.

Life of Riley – adding luxury to your living.
