FIVE REASONS TO SHOP HEIRLOOM
Heirloom was created with the curated experience in mind. We take pride in fostering trust between artisan and client by handpicking and vetting skilled craftspeople, ensuring each product tells a unique story while upholding the highest standards of furniture-making. Feel confident knowing that Heirloom does not infringe upon artisans’ approach to their craft, personal artistry, and pricing. Our goal is to help artisans find exciting projects and help you find the right artisan for your needs, all while ensuring a smooth workflow throughout.
Avoid the hassle of sifting through unreliable search engine results and trust in Heirloom’s commitment to handpicking skilled artisans. Bypass the uncertainty of reaching out to artisans without clarity on their availability and pricing by directly visiting Heirloom artisan profiles, where each clearly displays the artisan’s availability, typical price range, and portfolio.
Discover your next heirloom. Engage in the creation of your new piece and trust in its quality. Unlike mainstream furniture stores, Heirloom artisans craft pieces uniquely tailored to your vision, using premium materials. You can expect bespoke furniture that stands the test of time.
With the rising popularity of big-box furniture stores, it is becoming easier than ever to quickly buy pieces for the home. However, this convenience is at the expense of the environment. Poorly made, cheap furniture leads to frequent replacements and, in turn, more furniture waste. By purchasing high-quality, durable items we can decrease the rate at which we replace furniture and contribute to landfill waste.
Support talented small businesses by shopping through Heirloom and feel good about your purchase. When you shop from local, independent artisans you are single handedly helping a small business flourish. Furthermore, more revenue is recirculated into the local economy when purchasing items from an independent craftsperson as opposed to a chain retailer. Make every purchase a statement of support for creativity, craftsmanship, and the lasting impact of small businesses on our shared community!
