It’s undeniable that the design industry is moving towards the direction of handmade quality pieces that will last a lifetime, versus the fast design of inexpensive wares made in a factory. Provenance is important. There is something emotionally tactile about knowing that a piece of furniture has been carefully created by craftsmen. Today, we’re spotlighting a brand that masterfully achieves this idea: Earl Home.

The brand is headed by Chris and Amber Earl in Los Angeles – he’s the maker, she runs the business. His Danish roots as well as the time spent growing up in Papua New Guinea, have influenced Chris’ designs – his pieces demonstrate a clear Scandinavian influence with a respect of natural materials. Earl Home doesn’t just include beautiful wooden furniture, lighting, and serving boards, but also ceramics, inspired by Chris’ early days in a professional kitchen. The husband and wife duo have created a brand that feels fresh and yet also timeless.
