Utility is where Liverpool’s edgiest inhabitants source their homewares. With two city-centre shops, the stalwart retail emporium celebrated its 25th birthday in 2020. Quirky gifts sit alongside mid-century chair design, so you can pick up a novelty purple wheelie bin pencil holder (the distinctive colour of Scouse rubbish receptacles) at the same time as a sharply cut forest green Hay dining chair. If you’re keen to distil a touch of Scouse style – with typical humour – in your home, this is the place to do it.
