Kaufmann Mercantile chooses as well as designs furniture and homewares that are manufactured with equal importance given to functionality, durability, and aesthetics. Materials should be chosen for their longevity. The design should marry both function and beauty. Most of our products are handmade, and we never sell cheaply made mass-produced versions. We encourage still-functioning heirlooms, not fodder for landfills.
THEY BELIEVE A PRODUCT
should last a lifetime rather than clutter a landfill. Choosing the right products starts with choosing the right materials.
THEY ARE COMMITTED
to make a positive impact on the environment. You’ll have a hard time finding any synthetics in our store.
They are committed to working with and supporting those who build, tinker, hack, invent and simply make beautiful and functional things.
THEY WORK WITH MAKERS
directly, so you pay for quality, not branding hype or middlemen. We don’t believe in end-of-season discounts or flash sales, because the value of their items is timeless.
THEY WANT OUR PRODUCTS
to be as affordable as possible, while always making quality our priority. Everything in the store has been held, tested and debated.
