Step away from the big-box stores. (Just for a minute. We would never deny you long walks through the Target aisles.) Indie brands give you the chance to update your home's design with a not-so-predictable furniture choice.

Not only does shopping from an independent brand give you the chance to support small businesses, but most of these companies demonstrate a higher purpose by giving back to local communities, showcasing under-the-radar artisans or following sustainable practices. Keep scrolling to discover some of our favorite brands that are sure to give your home a one-of-a-kind look.


Located in High Point, N.C., Design 59 inc is a small manufacturing facility that handcrafts table and sofa legs, millwork and a selection of high-quality ottomans, benches and chairs. This tufted ottoman is made from vegan leather and features maple legs and brass nailhead detailing. Amazon's Handmade section gives local vendors the opportunity to share their products with a larger market.

The Citizenry

The Citizenry travels the world to partner with master artisans and works to establish sustainable relationships with them in order to bring high-quality modern design to their customers. Each item is handcrafted in a limited edition, so if you love it, snap it up. Handmade in Buenos Aires, Argentina, this butterfly chair is a chic addition to any space and constructed from 100 percent vegetable-tanned saddle leather.


Quickly becoming a favorite among designers, Cold Picnic mixes modern abstract style and cozy textiles. Their quirky, colorful rugs, as well as their quilts and bathmats, are designed in Brooklyn and handmade in India. Their knit blankets are created by a family-owned company in New Jersey.

$199 and up

This family-owned company uses repurposed wood and 100 percent eco-friendly stains and lacquers to create one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. Sourcing their wood from construction and destruction sites from hurricanes along the Gulf Coast, their goal is to give wood destined for the landfill a new life.


Not only is MasayaTradingCompany a furniture maker, but they also work to reforest clear-cut land in Nicaragua. For every piece of furniture they sell, they pledge to plant 100 trees, and all their furniture is produced from renewable and sustainably harvested tropical hardwoods. In addition to making a purchase that gives back to the earth, you also add a decidedly chic midcentury modern chair to your home.


Parachute is best known for its world-class linens, produced by expert artisans in Portugal. Their collaborations have expanded to other premium manufacturers, including a fourth-generation American mattress maker and home goods designer Chris Earl, who created this sleek side table. Made of 100 percent solid American Alderwood, the table is handcrafted in Los Angeles. The top shelf is removable so that it doubles as a tray.


Schoolhouse is another brand that started in a specific niche — stunning light fixtures — and has expanded its offerings over the years, all with a dedication to preserving American manufacturing and purposeful design. This heirloom-inspired bed is forged by an experienced family business in the heart of Los Angeles. It's available in four shades: black, white, yellow and this eye-catching persimmon.

The Inside

Working to create a no-waste manufacturing environment, The Inside makes each piece to order so that the furniture goes directly to homes and not to landfills. Every item is made from scratch in the USA, and you get to be a part of the design process by choosing from over 100 fabrics to create the exact piece you want.


The Danish brand Hay works with up-and-coming, as well as established, designers to create furniture forged for modern living. This castor-based armchair, designed by Hee Welling, ups your office chair game or makes a stunning addition to your contemporary living space.

Coming Soon

Coming Soon's furniture collection is perfectly curated to suit shoppers looking for offbeat and vintage finds. Former art gallerists Fabiana Faria and Helena Barquet founded the company and work directly with artists to create a creative collaboration that brings unique home goods to their customers.
