A new generation of companies has turned direct-to-consumer furniture into an outlet for well-made original design.

Brothers Travis and Ryan Nagle founded direct-to-consumer company Medley in 2016 with the goal of providing customizable, locally made, eco-friendly furniture to the masses. This sofa, made in California, has a touch of Hollywood Regency glam.
Since launching in 2015, direct-to-consumer BenchMade Modern has provided custom, U.S.-made furniture at a fraction of the typical cost. The company’s latest collection, Catwalk, is all about the legs, but you can still customize the fabric (shown here in leather), depth, and finish.

This footrest is the companion to BenchMade Modern’s Catwalk chair, sofa, or sectional. Like the rest of the items in the collection, it is made in Dallas.

With the mission to create

With the mission to create “the Impossible Burger of furniture,” Phantila Phataraprasit and Caitlin Ellen founded Sabai in 2018. Their first collection—an ottoman, sofa, and sectional (pictured here)—relies on sustainably sourced materials (like a velvet created from recycled water bottles) and is manufactured in High Point, North Carolina.
