happy house about us

Happy House is small in scale but very big in heart. We are all about creating fun products that explore innovation in everyday items, to bring life to products through clever design using our distinct beautiful bright artwork. The principal still applies even after 17 years of starting the business. We love to create product that brings joy and happiness to the recipient, for a girl of any nationality of any age but more commonly between 6 to 25 years of age! The end goal is to create a smile.
We started from a very modest beginning, Tiff (Tiffany Manuell) after a career in fashion made a leap of faith to pursue her love of art and design and combine that with creating hand made cards. Well the hand made part soon lost in for production methods as business grew rapidly, the love spread quickly and from a few stores in her home town of Adelaide grew to a much more global distribution in a matter of a couple of years. What distinguished Happy House mainly from the others in the market was the bold colour and fun inventive approach to product and perhaps the very Australian feel of the artwork. This is still the essence of the brand today and why it is so well loved by different cultures.
Happy House has sold in over 40 countries in many forms, decorating bedrooms with bed linen and accessories, brightly coloring parties with balloons and party items, adorning young girls with casual bags, apparel and jewellery, brightening schools days with stationery, back packs and lunch boxes, making lives fun with toys and gift ware, keeping girls on time with watches and clocks and generally filling up many hearts with colour and happiness!
Happy House today is an intellectual property business where companies around the globe partner with us to collectively manufacture products using the bright fun philosophy, art style and original Happy House brand. In this way we have been able to take a much wider journey into countries we only ever dreamt about. In the future we hope to reach out to more girls, meet more fun people along the way and enjoy the experience in making it happen.
For Tiff the dream remains the same, to create a smile.
