Our Story

Sorbet Living is a welcome burst of colour, a move away from white on white, refreshing and relaxed. 

 

Years of experience mean we know our makers and manufacturers. We have an uncompromising approach to quality and search out committed suppliers who are passionate about the products they make. From hand weaving and dyeing, to hand throwing porcelain or hand block printing, we support specialist industry in Britain and sometimes further afield.

We also apply our inherent care to our customer service. Over the last nine years, we have always gone the extra mile to send our products to our customers, ensuring delicate items are well wrapped and arrive in time, particularly for those special occasions.

Our Mission

To bring our customers a carefully curated selection of luxury modern home and lifestyle items in gorgeous sorbet and ice cream colours.

We know that few people can resist ice cream and sorbet. Made with fresh fruit, their palette of beautiful colours from soft mints and pinks to deeper, berry shades, look stunning when they appear on the natural linens, soft cottons, wool and stoneware we use in our unique products.

Debbie Gent has been sourcing beautifully-designed products for over 25 years. A former clothing buyer with a passion for fresh, inspirational homeware, in 2008 she set up Sorbet Living, an online home and lifestyle store.

Debbie is also a business mentor for The Sorting Office design studios in Eastleigh, Hampshire where she mentors sixteen other businesses. Debbie utilises her knowledge of the retail industry to advise and strategize on a wide range of disciplines including textiles, clothing design and craft.
