Great design gets lost online
We are a group of like-minded people who value travel, property, furniture and objects by the quality of their design, functionality and aesthetic as well as their environmental impact.
We champion partners who tread more lightly in the world. We aim to bring to the forefront those retreats, products and pioneers who preserve our valuable resources for the future. The plane icon and eco-pioneer tags on our Spaces To Book listings will allow you to easily offset your own carbon footprint when travelling and recognise the properties who are taking measures to reduce their own. As our journey progresses in the business world, so will our mission to further invest in forward-thinking and sustainable technology and practices. We have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every booking made via our Kobu direct booking listings.
