Renate Ruby founded Adorn LLC in 2015, after a career in Interior Design and art. As a maker, Renate is dedicated to connecting the designer and design enthusiast community with amazing makers who build beautiful things to last.
Renate married Roisy Rickel's dad when she was 6 years old and they have had a special relationship ever since. After completing her studies at the UW Foster School of Business Roisy had joined Renate as a co-owner of Adorn LLC, the company that runs both Brume and Adorn, our sister store.
Working together is great fun! They each bring something different to the table as partners. Renate's biggest challenge is keeping up with Roisy's quick mind and keen instincts.
A POETIC APPROACH TO FURNITURE
A Brume is a light fog, reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest and Northern European climates. We believe that the poetry, stories, and craftsmenship behind the piece are what make it beautiful.
We are a knowledgeable resource for designers and design enthusiasts to resource and learn about fairly produced products with great workmanship.
We work to empower interior designers and elevate what they do. We encourage clients to allow their designers to create whole compositions that are worth more than the sum of their parts.
We fuel a flourishing interior design industry that ethically and generously supports its suppliers, showrooms, designers, and end customers in order to sustain a thriving community.
Our mission is to cultivate an appreciation of well-crafted furnishings built by people who make a good living building it. We believe the first step in sustainability is to stop benefiting from poor people's labors.
We believe in people. We believe in beauty. We believe in community
We are committed to telling the stories of quality materials built by people that are treated fairly and make a comfortable living.
We are passionate about supporting designers and reimagining the value proposition they bring to consumers.
We invite consumers to hire a designer to take them on a journey beyond where they could dream of going alone
Finally, we strive to educate homeowners and design enthusiasts about the stories and techniques the products in their homes are made from.
