Outfitting your place isn't easy or quick. You want original, interesting pieces filling your home. You don't want it to look like everything you own was bought at the same store. But the options available to those not working with an interior designer
can be somewhat limited. Thankfully, there are
upstarts like Hem that are making interior
design a little less intimidating. From the
brains behind Fab.com, the new web-based
furniture shop offers original, timeless
furniture and accessories for design-
minded shoppers looking to upgrade from
the flimsy, wobbly pieces you often
regret buying from big box stores. Each
product Hem offers was created with
up-and-coming designers and crafted
with integrity from quality materials.
Which means prices are attainable,
but they ain't cheap. Herewith, some
of our favorites.
Founder Jason Goldberg describes Hem as "the Nike ID of custom furniture." Soon, you'll be able to order pieces in a range of sizes and colors. Plus, the direct-sales model allows Hem to offer custom pieces for less and ship them faster than other manufacturers.
