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.
3. Inside Weather
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.
