Learn more about our Founder!

CHANEL KIMURA – FOUNDER CEO

Handmade Home Co. was founded to help furniture artists, woodworkers, and home decor creators sell their work online. In 2018, I began flipping furniture for my own apartment and quickly realized how lucrative this "hobby" could be! I spent the first couple of years doing custom furniture requests, and eventually branched out to purchasing inventory to flip and list for sale. I had a very difficult time trying to find the most effective places to list my work. 
 
I set out to create a high-end marketplace that focuses on handmade home furnishings, where haggling is prohibited, the fee structure is easy to understand, and all the necessary services are provided to help small businesses succeed. Our artists can create their own "Shop" pages to tell customers about their business and showcase their work. There are custom commission requests avialable directly on our website. We handle all of the confusing aspects of shipping, marketing & advertising for our artists, providing them with more time to focus on their craft. 
 
By listening carefully to artists, Handmade Home Co. is constantly developing solutions for the challenges they face in general marketplaces. As a company, we pride ourselves on being proactive in listening, learning, and implementing the most efficient and cost-effective services for our artists. 
 
With the rise of Amazon and their Prime Delivery offering 1–2-day shipping, consumers are now expecting either free shipping services, insanely fast ship times, and delivery rates & times displayed at checkout. Providing these services at checkout is key to maximizing customer satisfaction, but most artists do not have the resources to configure that on their own. 
 
At check-out, we provide customers with live rates & ship times for this reason. We also give our artists the option of offering “free local pickup” & “artist drop off” at a pre-determined cost. We discuss the possibility of "free shipping" on items that would benefit from it with our artists. The artist can choose whether or not to accept this option.
