Welcome to Furniture Crate’s new blog; klein on design!
My name is Michelle Klein, and I’m the merchandiser/buyer for Furniture Crate. A little background about me… I was born and raised in Minnesota and lived in a home surrounded by my mom’s books and projects on home decor. I was actually more into fashion and sewed and designed clothes since I was 10. After college, I moved here to Michigan 9 years ago to start working for a “mass merchant ” chain in the buying department. That gave me a chance to work with world famous designers in New York, Chicago, and beyond. Even though I’ve been exposed to product and furniture design professionally, my heart has always been a home decor enthusiast.
Now, while working with world class web design and internet professionals, there couldn’t be anything better and this is the best job I could hope for. With this blog, we hope to share with you about products and ideas here at Furniture Crate, but also some fun personal stories about us in the process.
