Our Story

Your Habitat is a family owned company that commenced operation in Hobart, Tasmania in July 1984. The philosophy behind this entrepreneurial undertaking was to provide the people of Tasmania with the highest quality homewares products from around the world at affordable prices. Since its inception, Your Habitat has grown to become one of Australia’s most respected specialty homewares retailers with five stores located across Tasmania.

During this period of growth the ethos of providing the highest quality products at affordable prices has been expanded to include a commitment to ensuring the highest standards of customer service – guaranteed in writing.

In March 2003, Your Habitat won the prestigious Global Innovator Award (GIA) awarded by the International Housewares Association to recognise success, innovation and outstanding customer service in housewares retailing. Whilst we are very proud of our achievements to date, we believe in constantly refining our product range and continually redefining what it means to provide exceptional customer service.
