Clean, Simple,

Natural, Modern. One of the toughest challenges to sustainable living lies right in the home. At Walker’s World we believe that shopping behaviours have environmental and socioeconomic consequences. In the thirty years that we have been in business we have successfully developed a socially and eco-friendly culture, and with our new flagship store and showroom at Millhouse and Home, we believe we have perfected the art of one-stop-shopping that further enhances our corporate mission—making your house feel like a home

The experience of one stop shopping is not only a trendy lifestyle approach but is also consistent with the values of sustainability. Imagine an afternoon of retail therapy followed by a farm to table dining experience at Open Kitchen, while sipping an exclusive artisanal wine from Wine Cave, all under the same roof—there is no need to drive, hence reducing your carbon footprint, and less chaos in your day. One must never undervalue the power of making responsible purchasing decisions. When you buy your indoor and outdoor furniture, home accessories, kitchen and table wear, lighting and soft furnishings from us, you can be sure that you are supporting environmentally and socially ethical business practices and production methods. Our commitment to sustainability is also reflected in many of the materials that we use; for example, rather than selling pieces manufactured from unsustainably harvested lumber which contributes to the deforestation of tropical rainforests, many of our products are made from bamboo, hand-woven fabrics, recycled glass or other natural or recycled materials.

We also believe that less is more. Multi-purpose, space-saving furnishings are available to support a green lifestyle throughout your home. We are also conscious of the impact that coastal settings and harsh weather can have on furniture and accessories, and are careful to source items that stand up to our unforgiving tropical environment. Walker’s World is also able to meet the direct needs of our clients with the in-house design services of our W Design Hub. Our interior design team works on both small and large commercial and residential projects—from classic colonial to relaxed island living or ultra modern—we can help our clients to meet their design and budgetary needs. At Walker’s World, we are dedicated to bringing eco-friendly, highly personalized, one stop shopping to every part of your home decor and furniture shopping experience.
