Thoughts on the home.
Celebrate your story.
Home is a universal need. It is a personal space where we can really be ourselves, recharge, host friends, make memories, and so much more. Naturally, each home is as unique as the individuals living in it, and the objects we choose to surround ourselves with reflect that. Good design is truly transformative, whether it's the elegant curved form of a chair that is like music to your eyes or a well-designed object that elevates a utilitarian task into a delightful ritual.
We spend countless hours scavenging dusty old homes and thrift stores, and searching the depths of the web to find one-of-a-kind treasures to share with you in hopes that we can help you tell a part of your story, and most importantly, celebrate it!
Cutting back on waste.
Giving objects a second life.
Vintage furniture is the future! We are growing more and more disheartened with the uncertainty of how some home goods are unethically produced, and the throwaway culture of poor quality, nondurable furniture resulting in massive waste. We won't get into details but it's a scary number.
We thought it made sense to go back to our roots, find well-made and thoughtfully designed furniture and objects of the past that have lasted for decades and prolong its life even more. Giving things a second life may not change the world but if more of us go on this trajectory we could cut down on the landfill. Vintage furniture also just looks amazing and full of character. Beautiful to look at + recycling = win.
