Viesso's 3 founders is one of my favorite online modern furniture stores and  I love the fact that they offer a modern eco-friendly line of products.  Today I am giving you the chance to learn more about who they are and how they became Viesso. Above is a photo of the three founders of the company and here is their story in their own words:

While sitting on a bench at one of LA’s outdoor malls in 2005, staring at one of the furniture industry’s behemoth showrooms with homogeneous products, we thought to ourselves, there has to be a better way. Most furniture companies presented their products in an outdated and inefficient fashion, and consumers were forced to settle for products that were generic and didn’t fit their specific needs. It became clear we needed to create an innovative process that allowed for maximum customization, with a website and more efficient showrooms as the core of the company.

Our aim is to be the best solution for modern furniture, on and offline. We continue to add to our own Viesso line, expand our Green collection, and carry amazing products from other companies. While we curate and sell all our quality products on our website, we support that offering with a showroom and honest design help to allow people to make educated (and stylish) decisions. By blending customization, modern technology, smart design, and sustainable living, we hope to offer a refreshing way for you to furnish your space.
