Visit us to see our collection of well-known designers and some new ones we uncover by exploring the world to discover lots of things we love and know you'll love too.

Our shop, Bumblebee @ Paul Hodgkiss Designs, is set in a beautiful 200-year-old sandstone cottage on Glasgow’s south side. Bumblebee blossomed from Paul Hodgkiss Designs which has been creating custom made furniture since 1994.As the shop was originally a showroom for our furniture, the decision to offer a lovingly selected range of accessories for the home was a natural progression. Since Bumblebee opened its doors in 2002, our enthusiasm has grown along with the distinctive range of items on offer.

You will quickly discover that we are passionate about what we sell, and our range of accessories, gifts and toys, are all just that little bit different. Many are one-offs, as we are always coming across irresistible new designs during the course of our travels. Some of the beautiful accessories we sell are from Madame Stoltz and Nkuku which are both fair trade companies. We stock beautiful ceramics from Luna Lighting, Jane Maddison, and lovely porcelain mugs by Repeat Repeat. We love Scandanavian Greengate and their beautiful cushions and stoneware. These are just a few of the companies we have so please have a browse at our shop to see our selection.
