Founder series – Neptune

We were delighted to welcome two of Neptune's founders, John and Emma Sims-Hilditch, to share their retail journey from hammock to the whole home.

Interviewed by Melanie Wotherspoon, Business development director

Neptune has come a long way since it was founded 21 years ago. Their products are synonymous with classic design but with a contemporary feel and they regularly grace the pages of publications such as Country Life and House & Garden.

Within  Neptune’s first year, more than 5,500 hammocks were sold and went on to be stocked in Harrods.

In this interview with two of the founders, Melanie Wotherspoon explores Neptune’s journey from making hammocks around the kitchen table to a £24 million turnover business with designs for every room of the home and garden, and over 40 stores across the UK and Europe.
