The founder of Handmade Home Co., Chanel Kimura, has been a furniture artist since 2018, giving her the ability to deeply understand the needs of this community.
“Handmade Home Co. was founded to help furniture artists, woodworkers, and home decor creators sell their work online. During 2018, I began flipping furniture for my own apartment and quickly realized how lucrative this "hobby" could be! I spent the first couple of years doing custom furniture requests, and eventually branched out to purchasing inventory to flip and list for sale. I had a very difficult time trying to find the most effective places to list my work. I set out to create a high-end marketplace that focuses on handmade home furnishings, where haggling is prohibited, the fee structure is easy to understand, and all the necessary services are provided to help small businesses succeed. Our artists can create their own "Shop" pages to tell customers about their business and showcase their work. We handle all of the confusing aspects of shipping, marketing & advertising for our artists, providing them with more time to focus on their craft. With Handmade Home Co.'s "Commission Request" service, customers can request a custom piece of furniture from any artist on our platform.
For consumers who have furniture at home that needs refinishing, or are looking for a more affordable & eco-friendly solution to purchasing brand new, this is an excellent option. Furthermore, our artists can source out a specific piece and refinish it to the consumer's specifications. Click here to learn more!
In the furniture industry, shipping is one of the biggest hassles that we face. With the rise of Amazon and their Prime Delivery offering 1–2-day shipping, consumers are now expecting free shipping services, insanely fast ship times, and delivery rates & times displayed at checkout. Providing these services at checkout is key to maximizing customer satisfaction, but most artists do not have the resources to configure that on their own.
Handmade Home Co. provides customers with live rates & ship times at check-out for this reason. In addition, our artists have the option of offering artist drop off & free local pickup services for those shopping locally.
Our pieces are designed by independent artists, meaning they are truly unlike any piece you've seen before! Browse through our artists profiles to learn more about their small business and see their amazing work.
