Retail and design report 2023


retail and design report by estila 2023 for small brands and designers

If you are a small independent brand, designer or artist who sell their products and services directly to customers or clients we have created this Retail and Design report particularly for you. Inside you’ll find an overview of what consumers and clients are looking for in 2023, considering what’s going in the economy domestically in the UK and on a global scale, and how this might be impacting your business.

After the past years of the pandemic and lockdowns, consumers crave experiences that help them forget, escape and experience joy. That’s why, unlike most reports in lifestyle retailing and interior design, we based our report around two key emotional needs – escapism and joy. Through case studies of creative businesses similar to you in this Retail and Design report we show you how both of these emotions look like in a retail space, ecommerce and design. We also share some specific ideas, takeaways and tips which you can get inspired by and maybe even try yourself.

Your business is well positioned for delivering products and services customers and clients are looking for, especially when it comes to sustainable and ethical values, wellbeing and self-care. You can use the advantage of being small and flexible to make 2023 an amazing year for your business. We hope that after reading the report, you get some clarity, understanding, inspiration and focus which will help you overcome what it said to be a challenging year ahead.

Here is a small preview of what you will find inside.


From innovative social retail, disruptive beauty brands to natural luxe interiors and maximalist art, this edition is a must-read for any creative.
