How does Conifer support artisans and makers?
Everything we carry at Conifer is slow crafted and intentional. We are here to share the story and experiences of each maker and support them as they continue to grow. We love fostering relationships with the makers and working with them to provide opportunities to show their work — whether they’re well established or just starting out.
“There will always be challenges and people who are ready to talk you out of your dream, but there’s a reason for everything. Your dream is your purpose.”
What are your favorite products in the shop right now?
It’s hard to pick favorites, but I absolutely love the lightweight stone-colored mugs by O’baware. Kazu is a local Japanese artist who crafts his ceramics in small batches out of his home studio. They are truly functional pieces of art made to last! We have quite a few local potters on our shop shelves like Void & Form, Good Hearted Woman and Artisan Artifacts, just to name a few!
What aspects of design do you favor in the products you offer?
I lean toward a more neutral color palette with textures and natural elements that hold your interest. Well-crafted, functional objects that serve a purpose but also have personality are my favorite!
In your opinion, what makes a house a home?
Since the shop is our home, we intentionally built all of our fixtures, like tables and shelves, using reclaimed wood and other natural elements. It was important to me to build this store ourselves as each fixture has a story — much like the makers we carry. I also love adding a wide variety of unique plants to create a warm and inviting space among all of the natural textures.
Define your home’s style in two words:
Intentional and welcoming.
