Colorful Tables from an Etsy Star

Issue 3 · Paints & Patterns · January 23, 2014

Here’s a true story of our age: When Etsy, the digital storefront specializing in the handmade and vintage, was looking to furnish their headquarters in Dumbo, Brooklyn, they shopped the makers on their own site. What did they find? Colorful, hand-crafted, welded metal and wood furniture with a certain whimsical utilitarian appeal by SAWhomeBK, the Etsy shop set up by furniture maker Sawyer Devuyst. And his studio's bricks and mortar location is—Brooklyn, where else?

When the metal fabrication shop fell on hard times and let him go, Devuyst set up SAW homeBK on Etsy, and was recently selected as a member of Boom Brands 2013 by New York Magazine.
