Why We Do What We Do
Allow us to take a deep dive into the idea of “home” for a minute. Your home is where you’re relaxed, comfortable, and wearing your soft pants. It’s the cozy nook of the big wide universe we all carve out through a series of careful decisions. It’s where the TV is exactly the right distance from the sofa, family and friends are lovingly framed, and the walls are that super-specific shade you picked out after approximately one million years of agonizing over paint chips. It’s also full of choices you can’t see with the naked eye, including your furniture: it’s not just what it looks like, but what it’s made of and how it was made.
We’re here to bring you furniture made of premium, eco stuff that will make your home cozy for years to come.
We’ve been in the furniture game long enough to know that there's a better way. Most mass-produced furniture goes from delivery to landfill in a few years (!!). Frankly, we hate that. We want you to feel excited about the pieces you choose to make part of your home — not just as soon as you click buy or as soon as it's delivered, but after it’s held up beautifully years and years (and years!) from now.
Oh look, it’s the guys behind Medley: two brothers, Travis and Ryan. We grew up outside of Sacramento, CA, in a hippie household that taught us to tread lightly. Back in the early eighties, we were definitely the only family on the block with a solar-powered camper in the driveway (you’re a visionary, Dad!).
A few years after college, we got into the furniture business together (and yeah, our first showroom was in our living room). The more we learned about how furniture usually gets made, the more sure we were that we wanted to make it the best way possible: with clean, eco materials, local manufacturing, and an emphasis on quality and comfort.
Since 2005, we’ve been learning all we can and trying to further the conversation on sustainability in our industry. We want to change how an industry thinks about making furniture, and also change how people think about what goes into their homes.
