Hi everyone, my mom and I are super excited right now because we are FINALLY ready to reveal something we’ve been working on for quite some time now. It’s been a long struggle to get it just right.
Basically, in all the years we’ve been selling furniture, we’ve noticed that there is this gap between the cheaply made IKEA type furniture and the high end, real wood furniture. We’ve been asking ourselves, “where is the furniture for normal families like us!? Where do you go to get furniture that isn’t particle board without wanting to cry when you go to pay for it?”
Being the entrepreneurs that we are, we decided that we were going to start our own furniture line. If you can’t find it, make it! Sounds easy right? Well, it hasn’t been that easy and we’ve had a few false starts, BUT it has happened! And the best part is, a local family is making it and they are the nicest people I think I’ve ever met. There is NOTHING better than finding good people to partner with and share this crazy journey with.
We wanted something made of real wood and we wanted it to be sort of imperfect so it’s being made with reclaimed wood.
We’ve been loving the modern farmhouse look so we were inspired by the X designs that have been popping up everywhere. My mom gathered a lot of photos and worked with our carpenter to finalize our pieces. We narrowed down to just a few pieces so we could make them quickly and picked our paint colors. You can choose white, off-white, gray or black paint. You also have the option of 3 different stains. It takes 3-5 weeks to come in after you place your order.
Once the sample pieces were made, we found an awesome photographer who was willing to go to the carpenter’s property to get photos with….SHEEP! Yes, we had to have sheep in our photos to complete the farmhouse look! Here’s what the photo shoot looked like:
We needed a picture of us for the catalog intro so we had to feed the sheep to get them to come over to us. We were laughing because they were nibbling on our fingers a little.
We knew we needed a big piece that could be used under a flat screen tv or in a dining room for storage so we came up with this:
Here is a peek at a few more pieces:
