the relove story
relove was created in 2013
After giving up day jobs, our goal was to transform our true passions into a lifestyle business that followed our ideas of what it means to live in a kinder world.
Passion for design and woodworking, mixed with love of mid-century, vintage & retro design led us to building a small business that creates one-of-a-kind upcycled items and handcrafted custom furniture.
We are proud of our business and the impact we’ve made in rebuilding, upcycling, reusing and salvaging. We have a 100% no waste policy, even the sawdust is composted!
By keeping items out of the landfill, by giving things a new life to be loved again, by building new pieces from old material that is usually wasted, we are positively contributing to our community, and in a small way, to the state of the world.
And, by using our creative talents in this way, we are also proud to offer our customers more sustainable, attainable products.
