We don’t know whether to call the pieces made by this California-based brand art or furniture, because they masterfully blur the line between both. Leah Ring, the multidisciplinary designer behind Another Human in Los Angeles, has been working in the industry and honing her aesthetic over the past decade, and her mastery can clearly be seen in the work she creates.

Ring founded her furniture brand Another Human in 2017, drawing inspiration from sources ranging from different eras, elements, and movements. Having been featured in almost every design magazine from Architectural Digest to Design Milk, Another Human is one of the best furniture brands to check out if you want to add a playful statement piece to any of your rooms.

Brothers Travis and Ryan have been working in the furniture business long enough to know the best practices both in sustainability and quality. By saying no to mass production, toxic chemicals, and overseas shipping, these two founded Medley, a prime furniture brand based in L.A. making timelessly stylish pieces with quality, comfort, and eco-friendly materials.

Medley wants you to feel excited about the pieces you choose for your home, not in the short-term instant gratification way, but after it’s held up beautifully after sitting in your living room for years. You’ll find a wide and varied collection of items on this furniture brand’s website, ranging from sofas to storage to mattresses. 

This brand has made the intentional choice of not having physical furniture stores in Los Angeles to keep the costs of their high-quality, eco-friendly furniture lower and passing the savings on to the consumers, and we think that’s fabulous. If you’re worried about not liking the pieces once they arrive at your house, the furniture brand offers a 100-day return policy. This basically means that you can try and test the piece for 100 days and send it back if you find that it’s not the best option for you for whatever reason—but we know that’s highly unlikely.

Here’s Inside Weather in a nutshell—you order the furniture online, customize every detail, and have it delivered to your door in a few days. Assembling furniture takes only a few minutes, but you get to enjoy your high-quality products for years. No showrooms, no markups, or heavy-lifting necessary. Pretty cool, right? We think so too.

This modern, personal, and accessible approach to furniture shopping is at the heart of the Bay Area-based furniture brand. The direct-to-consumer approach means that Inside Weather can lower costs on the basis of retailer markups and warehouse costs instead of lowering quality—that’s genius.

From the material on your sofa of choice to the surface design of a coffee table, everything is customizable at Inside Weather. All you have to do is play designer for a day to enhance your space

4. Fyrn

Fyrn was founded by Ros Broughton, a fourth-generation furniture maker who wanted to shift from making ultra-high-end cabinetry and furniture that was available only to a very small audience of well-resourced clients. Instead, Broughton used those same skills and experience to make high-quality objects that were more accessible to the average Californian consumer.

Based in San Francisco, Fyrn’s manufacturing facility is run by a team of talented craftspeople who make everything with love and without leaving the environment behind. Comfort, minimal waste, strength, and repairability are important factors for this furniture brand, and you can see it in their methods. Fyrn sources the materials domestically, and the hardware system reduces the need for a large manufacturing and warehouse facility, ultimately lowering their carbon footprint.

The brand offers a wide range of products; you’ll find everything from dining room chairs and kitchen stools to custom-made furniture pieces as well. Browse their catalogs and you're bound to find a piece you’ll love—we know we have. How cool do the Fyrn chairs look in the mid-century home?

5. Bend Goods

Founded by sculptor and visual designer Gaurav Nanda, Bend Goods specializes in contemporary wire furniture and brightly colored accessories made for any space. Nanda wanted to combine beauty with utility with this furniture brand, and boy, did he succeed! His beautiful products are made from recyclable iron and handcrafted by shaping and spot welding. These have found themselves in a variety of spaces from minimalist homes to international airports. 

All products from this furniture brand are created in Los Angeles and made to withstand wear and tear without sacrificing beauty and intricate design. The collection features chairs, stools, tables, and sculptures, with each piece more stunning than the next. Just look at the Peacock Lounge Chair sitting pretty next to the fireplace and tell us you don’t immediately want to add it to your cart.

Jeffrey and Lindsay launched Emblem in 2019, combining their shared expertise in design, problem-solving, and extensive background in manufacturing. Today, Emblem is one of the best sofa brands for commercial spaces and does so much more as well. Presenting design-focused, quick-ship, California-made furniture options for people, homes, and businesses, Emblem makes beautiful yet functional and durable furniture for every space.

If you don’t see an item that’s exactly to your liking on this furniture brand’s website, you can place custom orders. Whether you want to tailor one of Emblem’s standard pieces to your taste or have a space that needs an entirely custom piece of furniture, Emblem has your back. Are you as obsessed with this custom sectional as we are?
