Well Built was born from the idea that design is powerful and can be a platform for positive change. Inspired by design that enhances sustainability, efficiency and interactivity, Well Built showcases products that are developed using eco-responsible practices. We aspire to manifest a communal exchange of ideas and information: to effectively empower smart choices for the way we live, play, work and breathe.
Inspired by design that enhances conscientiousness in the spaces we inhabit, Well Built design consultants create beautiful living and working interior spaces. We collaborate with smart designers and small companies that share our vision. Between the two partners: Ann, Founder of Well Built Furniture, a design fanatic with LEED credentials; and Ihsan, a missionary of beautiful interiors — Well Built Interiors is committed to great design. Their clients include many homes and small businesses - but include larger design consulting projects with Agence-France Presse and Whole Foods Markets.
