About Arhaus

This is the story of Arhaus. Pronounced “our house”, it all began in 1986 when father and son, Jack and John Reed, opened the doors to a little known furniture store in an old fisherman’s warehouse in downtown Cleveland. This drafty, 3-story building was not only our first-ever showroom, it served as the home office and distribution center.

A lot has changed since then, but our philosophy, then and now, remains the same…retail is theatre. Furnishings are always center stage—shown in stores the way you’d want them arranged in your home. Theatrical details like drop pendants and crystal chandeliers, hand-painted murals and antique or reclaimed architectural elements fill in the rooms, acting as the backdrop. And then there are the luxurious throws and pillows, artwork and fresh flowers. It’s a place you never want to leave.

Jack and John also instilled in all of us their mission of “furnishing a better world.” To everyone here, this means something different. To some, it means sourcing sustainably and minimizing our footprint on the world, while to others it means providing beautiful designs and curated homes.

View our story below. Listen to John and our team, from designers to delivery crew, share their belief in what “furnishing a better world” means to them.

    My friend recommended to check out your store after I was getting exhausted to find a good quality round coffee table. I walked in the store in Natick,mass. At first I said myself WOW. What a variety of neat collections. But I fell in love with Palencia tables. And I plan to collect all the Palancias in the future. They seem represent myself and my whole family is happy with the choide have I made. Thank you very much for all your collections. I work with people that they just adore by your variety collections. Keep it up.

    I fell in love with your store, in Cleveland, in 1990, & have been a fan, ever since. My home is filled with Arhaus furniture & accessories & I’m so glad that now that I’m back in my home state, of Texas, you’ve opened-up stores here, as well. Best wishes on your growth & future development.
