At Branches, it's no secret we're all about repurposing a "well-loved" found object.
Your Branches Designers, Sarah & Lauren, love to get on the road to explore interesting found objects and home goods - and the often interesting people behind them. Each piece we bring home has a story and unique character that we just know you'll love, too:
Scratching around off the beaten path is one of our favorite activities. Raised in the South, we have a healthy love for all things rusty, wooden and loved-to-death. This deep appreciation has taken on us on journeys to some of the most eclectic junk yards and flea markets in the South. These “collectors,” as they’re called, aren’t your “regular folk,” which makes for a one-of-a-kind experience every time we go picking. The finds are always unique, as are the stories and colorful personalities we meet. We love hearing a good story about the origin of the item or to play the guessing game of “What do you think that was used for?” The ability to see the beauty in an forgotten or “old” item has a need takes a special eye, but we love to carry on the story and history of that item and its collector through our repurposed designs at the shop.
