A Labor of Love: Heartwork Office Furniture

September 6, 2017

Graduated from Ikea but need sleek office solutions? Heartwork to the rescue.

We’re admiring the bright storage and office furniture from Heartwork, a Portland, OR-based company founded by industrial designer and entrepreneur Karen John (who is quite possibly the most qualified furniture designer we know of: she studied industrial design at Domus Academy in Milan, got a masters degree at Stanford in manufacturing systems engineering, squeezed in an MBA at Insead in France, and then served as VP of Merchandising at Design Within Reach). Now John has filled a longstanding hole in the market with her compellingly priced line of USA-made, high-quality, heavy-duty 18/20 gauge steel storage cabinets and drawers. Available in a choice of six colors, these office building blocks are perfect for startups, home offices, children rooms, and beyond.
