The nightmare of long wait times and backordered items is plaguing the Home Decor Industry as well as many others. I see this as an opportunity for small businesses and artisans to thrive!
While big business is scrambling to get product, small business is already set up to provide your home decor needs today. Since small business and artisans don't have large marketing budgets, they can be a little harder to find.
We want to make it easier to find these boutique shops while promoting like-minded brands similar to ours. We hope to continue to add to the list. If you would like to be included or if you know of a brand that would be perfect, reach out and share!

Michael Zung is an entrepreneur with a passion for healthy living and healthy start-ups. He also has a passion for introducing artisan-crafted goods to a wider audience and for living with nature indoors. His motto? “More nature the better”.
Alex Bates is a design maven and obsessive gardener with a lifetime’s experience developing hand-crafted goods and brands that do good. She’s also a serial collaborator who brings people from all walks of the design and artisan worlds together.
Mike and Alex were introduced by a mutual friend and quickly realized they shared not just a love of nature but also a vision for a new kind of company. One that designed and curated the beautiful, meaningful, purposeful things you need to make a natural home.
Mike and Alex put on their thinking/designing/gardening caps and named the new company “Bloomist”, a nod to their commitment to helping artists, artisans, and makers flourish. And in the fall of 2018 (amidst a flurry of ceramic vessels, hanging mobiles, dried flowers, and green wrapping paper) Bloomist launched online.
