We get it–we really get it: investing in furniture is a big deal. And if you’re shopping around with a bit of sticker shock, we get that, too. Here’s why choosing ethically manufactured, durable furniture pays off—in other words, here’s a look at why Medley’s furniture costs what it does and how it’ll serve you (now + in the long run).
For us, it comes down to these five things: 1: craftsmanship + durability, 2: resilient materials, 3: timeless design and comfort, 4: customization, and 5: healthy, eco-friendly materials.
1. Craftsmanship + durabilityWe do everything possible to make sure your furniture will last. This starts with our team of skilled builders who use time-honored techniques and methods that help make our pieces durable.

Because our pieces are specifically constructed for longevity, they don’t require assembly (an added bonus), unless the piece involves a simple move, like screwing on legs. Instead, our furniture is...well, quite difficult to take apart. Take our Alder hardwood sofa frames, which use kiln-dried, solid wood to ensure long-lasting stability. Less expensive frames made from softwoods like pine can’t help but warp over time, and frames made of particle board, plastic, or metal are prone to cracking and deforming.
P.S: we're confident your furniture will last as long as you need it to, but just in case, we also offer a lifetime warranty on frames.
We take extra care to use the highest quality materials for anything that naturally stretches, wears and softens over time, like fabrics and cushion fillings.
3. Timeless design + comfort

Whether through a slight pitch in the seat back or an extra layer of wool around your sofa cushions, every design detail and material choice is made to create long-lasting, comfier furniture. Medley designers pay extra attention to how each item will be used for years to come, focusing on the item getting better with time…like wearing in your favorite pair of leather boots.
Our upholstered goods are made with your home in mind: open, modern, versatile, and most importantly, functional. We’ve added details like a tapered solid wood base to our Kirnik Collection and hand-sculpted arms with the most gentle swoosh to our Kaydan pieces. Revel in Eim's beautiful chamfered edges and ladder back or sink into Rio’s wide, enveloping silhouette.
On the whole, our approach is to design for timeless appeal that fits with all kinds of decor styles—all in hope of producing something adaptable that you’ll really want to keep.
4. Made one-of-a-kind for you and your spaceBecause every piece we build is made to order, we have the flexibility to customize your furniture to make sure that it's exactly what you’re looking for and fits your space.
