Effortless style: Why Amber Lewis believes in keeping it simple

Effortless style: Why Amber Lewis believes in keeping it simple

Amber Lewis crams a lot into life – running a hugely successful interior design agency, designing her own line of homewares and commanding a social media following of millions. So at home in Calabasas, California – with her musician husband Mike, daughter Gwyneth, Gwynie for short, and a host of rescue animals – Amber’s happiness lies in simple pleasures. She loves nothing more than curling up on the couch, listening to music and watching Gwyneth dance round the backyard to her favorite songs. “She’s got some darn good taste for a seven-year-old,” she laughs. And when it comes to designing interiors for her clients, Amber keeps the focus firmly on family time, togetherness and technology…

Listen Better: An Open Letter from Patrick Spence

Listen Better: An Open Letter from Patrick Spence

Listen Better: An Open Letter from Patrick SpenceFriends, Music is at the heart of our mission at Sonos.  But in today’s world, music faces mounting threats. Too many artists face barriers to free expression and others can be jailed or even killed for merely sharing their songs over the internet. Communities lack space and resources to ensure all musicians can be heard. We’re failing to foster a new generation of music lovers prepared for success in the modern economy. Music, along with film, suffers from many violations to artistic freedom. Our failure to protect music is a failure to protect the basic liberties of all people. That’s why we’re committing to work actively to promote and…

Sonos App Remastered

The Sonos App Remastered

The new Sonos app makes it easier to find, control and, most importantly, enjoy your music. There are few things in this world as satisfying as a record collection. It’s arranged exactly the way you want—alphabetically or chronologically, by color or by genre.  It’s simple and makes enjoying your music the focus. Music in the digital age provides a very different kind of satisfaction. Streaming means you have access to almost every song ever recorded, and you can listen pretty much wherever you are. But having all that music, not to mention podcasts and radio, at your fingertips makes it harder to find exactly what you want to play. We want to improve the listening experience on Sonos.  So…

Happy Birthday to the Sonos store!

Happy Birthday to the Sonos store!

Last weekend, our flagship store in New York turned one and some of the hottest names in music came out to help us celebrate. Partnering with the good folks at Pitchfork, we hosted a weekend-long radio broadcast, live from the Greene Street store – cramming the likes of Flatbush Zombies, Alvvays and DJ Shadow into our state-of-the-art listening rooms. And if this sounds like no ordinary first birthday party, that’s because the Sonos store is no ordinary kind of retail store. In fact, it’s anything but.   Right from the start, our idea was to design a perfect listening space – a place where people could come to kick back, relax and listen to music in a whole new way. So we turned to…

To have and to hold – listening to vinyl with Sonos

Listening to Vinyl with Sonos

Our goal at Sonos is to fill every home with sound. A big part of that comes from connecting us all to the digital world – from podcasts to music streaming to internet radio, it’s never been easier to listen to everything you love.   However, the rise of streaming hasn’t led us to forget the importance of the physical in defining our musical identities.  Vinyl’s come to represent a return to simpler pleasures – the sight, sound and even smell of an LP tells its own story in a way that playlisting cannot. Many would argue that vinyl never truly went away but album listening clubs, pop-up shops in clothing stores and Record Store Day have all contributed to a cultural renaissance and a…

Hate photos. Love Vicky Grout.

Hate photos. Love Vicky Grout.

Our visit to Vicky Grout’s home marks the continuation of our special collaboration between Sonos and Freunde von Freunden.    Grime is London’s latest music export. Just don’t get it twisted with hip-hop – it’s not the same thing. From Wiley pioneering the genre to Skepta becoming the vanguard for the new generation, grime has always had a tricky relationship with media. So how did Vicky Grout become a trusted part of the culture from behind the lens? Step inside Vicky’s South London home and you’ll get a quick sense of how she’s become an authentic part of grime. Her room is a cosy mish-mash of analogue cameras, boxes of trainers, and magazines crammed into every bookshelf.…
