SHELF/LIFE was opened in 2009 as a brick + mortar shop based in Surry Hills, Sydney. It’s founder, interior designer Jess Ibbett, was inspired to create a space to support local and international independent designers, with a focus on sustainability and ethical design.

SHELF/LIFE was featured in many publications, including Inside Out and Frankie, before closing its doors and moving exclusively online in 2013.

In operating SHELF/LIFE, Jess has covered all aspects of the business, including retail management, marketing and graphic design, and has had the fortune to collaborate with various creatives, such as One Another, with whom she created the Designed For Good Pop Up in December 2015.

SHELF/LIFE has transformed once more in 2016, shifting its focus to blog content, as Jess continues to collaborate on projects and work on her own personal pieces, some of which can be found in the SHOP section. She has written more about what brought about this change in approach HERE.

SHELF/LIFE is an agent for Who Did That’s range of beautifully crafted lights. Please contact Jess if you require information regarding the range.
