Meet the Founder

Founded by antiques dealer Libs Lewis, Domestic Science has three Cotswold stores showcasing the latest collections of covetable interiors, fashion and lifestyle brands, alongside lovingly sourced antique pieces for the contemporary home. 

10 years on, her impeccable taste and cultivated aesthetic are visible threads that run through each carefully curated department.

How it all began...

Read about our three Cotswold stores...

Nailsworth 2013 - 2023

Domestic Science Nailsworth opened in 2013 in the basement of an old Woollen Mill, bringing together Lib's vision to have contemporary goods sitting alongside beautiful vintage pieces.

In July 2023 Nailsworth expanded into the first and second floors of Days Mill, doubling in size to make space for a more curated shopping experience.

Spanning three light filled floors, our Flagship store has been designed to delight and inspire. You’ll find a larger vintage offering, elegantly mixed with contemporary homeware, beauty, hardware, kids toys, and clothing.

Situated at the back of Domestic Science is a hidden gem, The Canteen, a friendly cafe with a stunning courtyard, quirky decor and relaxed atmosphere.


Opening in 2014, our Tetbury store is set over 3 floors of a glorious Georgian town house. With 6 rooms to explore it is often described as an 'Aladdins cave', filled to the brim with beautiful vintage pieces, scented candles, ruffled cushions, clothing and toys.

Tucked away at the back of the shop is the delightful Café 53 , serving up super fresh food and the finest coffee. A child and dog friendly cafe with a beautiful courtyard garden.


Our newest bricks and mortar shop opened in Stow-on-the-Wold in May 2021; offering a smaller edit of our larger sister stores.

Set in a beautiful Cotswold town, Domestic Science is surrounded by other wonderful independents, galleries and cafes.
