About us


Penny Farthing Design House is a platform for a creative, curated and cool collection of affordable art and homewares to inspire beautiful living.

Within our art collection we house a range of limited edition and original artworks, photography and an exhibition space. 

Penny Farthing collaborates with a unique community of artists to produce a collection of desirable designer artworks.

The name ‘Penny Farthing’ is inspired by Noel Smith, my grandfather, who was a passionate entrepreneur. He had a larger-than-life personality and a passion for living. It was in the last few days of his life that he had a strong vision for an artwork of a Penny Farthing. Naturally, when my sister Alice and I decided to start an online art gallery, the name seemed serendipitous. It forms a constant reminder of a man well adored.
