departo Is a Modern Departure From Luxury Home Goods

Committed to delivering high-end homewares without the steep price tag to match, departo is changing the way we think about home decor. Originally a foldable furniture concept created by Yabu Pushelberg and Stellar Works, departo grew into a complete home catalog, championing dynamic design inspired by the belief that our home’s needs change as we do. From plates and glassware to bathroom accessories and table linens, everything is intended to evolve with you, promising endless possibilities that’ll stand the test of time. The best part? They’ve officially landed in the Design Milk Shop. Read on to learn more about the concept behind the craft.

The antidote to the “fast design” model that overcharges and under delivers, departo goods are intentionally made to transcend any one use or placement in your home, offering the flexibility to switch things up as you need. Their high quality craftsmanship and rich, earthy tones and textures invite us to slow down in a world that’s always on the move, while fixed, permanent materials like ceramic, cast-iron, metal, and glass anchor us to the present moment.
