Introducing Design Circulation


We buy back your furniture, 
regardless of wear.


Purchase a circulated piece for less than the standard price. We’ll buy it back from you at any point in the future, regardless of wear, in exchange for store credit. We’ll pick it up for free, restore it to its original condition and circulate it to the next generation of owners.


When you're ready, we'll
schedule a free pick-up of
your design circulation piece.


Once we receive your
piece, you'll get store
credit that never expires.


The piece is then restored
to original condition.


The newly restored piece
is sold, and circulated to
the next home!


New Craft Tradition

For over thirty years, we’ve been producing heirloom-quality furniture from our workshop in Chicago. Our work is solid hardwood and hand-finished, which enables us to restore it to its original condition. Every circulated piece is sanded, repaired and refinished to ensure it is indistinguishable from when it first left our shop. 

We build furniture to last. We circulate it to ensure it actually does.


Accessible Heirloom

We believe your furniture should fit your changing tastes and needs. Design Circulation delivers a system of flexible ownership to make this simple. Return your furniture to us at any time for store credit, which is transferable and never expires. You can keep your credit until you want another piece—or transfer it to a loved one.

A System for Furniture

Design Circulation intends to create a system in which furniture is never discarded nor destroyed, but rather circulated from home to home. We believe that beautiful, well-made objects inspire longevity and are integral to sustainable design. Design Circulation eases our dependency on natural resources through reuse while increasing accessibility to beautiful, well-crafted furniture.
