Furniture: Collect, Repair, Refurb, Repeat

Em & Wit Design

Hey there, we’re Em & Wit. We are a couple who collect, repair, salvage, design and refurbish furniture and housewares found at estate sales, craigslist, the curb, barns, garage sales, things from your home and everywhere in between. Vintage, mid-century, retro, mod, modern, deco, antique, primitive, rustic, atomic ranch, and on and on. 

We have a curated shop with unique items from our travels. If you see it in the photo, there’s an excellent chance the item is for sale. Just ask. You can purchase through our website or in our home shop using cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover.  (Tax will be added) We are open by appointment on the weekends.

For years the two of us had a successful business in Minnesota, many of our clients were located in Minneapolis and its metro area, but we’ve moved and set up shop in the Pacific Northwest. It was our dream and we’re happy to finally be here.  We often take on client work, feel free to ask.  If you are interested, send an email to emandwitdesign at gmail.com or go to our contact page at emandwit.com.  You can also arrange an appointment, ask us a question, safely shop, find out more about us, get how-tos/tips and read the stories behind the furniture we find at emandwit.com. 

A few bits to note:

-If you do not care for the hardware we use, either we or you can switch it out. No problem. We can take it off, just let us know.

-We try to use natural products whenever we can.  Milk, chalk, non-VOC paints with hemp, tung and other natural oils or waxes for finishing.  We do a custom mix for both durability and desired finish based on our years of experience.

-Repeat customer?  You get a discount. Buy more than one piece? You get a discount. Your support means the world to us and we like to show our appreciation. 

-Sorry but we no longer ship our pieces due to the likelihood of damage. 

-Delivery is available for a fee or you can schedule to stop by and take it with you if it fits the bill. Please arrange an appointment by email.

-We are located in Auburn which is 25 miles south of Seattle and 15 miles north of Tacoma. We accept cash and debit/credit cards. No checks. Tax will be added. All sales final.  Them’s the rules.

-These are vintage and antique pieces, so there will still be some aging and wear beyond our control.

-We are not responsible for damage you might incur or accidents you cause while on our property.
