Our Mission

Artisans Trading was founded by Babson alumni Azem Dervisivic and MassArt alumni Baylor Bennett in 2014. The mission of Artisans Trading is to provide fair trade and environmentally furniture that is of the highest quality. All of our pieces are hand made of farmed or reclaimed woods. 

We believe strongly in selling heirloom quality furniture at a price that is fair to everyone. We buy our pieces directly from the artisans who create them. Our customers come to us because they want to buy original pieces at fair prices. We don't spend money on fancy showrooms or high gloss catalogues so our customers only pay for the furniture they receive. Come visit us and you'll be amazed at our quality and our prices. 

Fair business for everyone.

Fair business for everyone. From the tree that gives us wood, to the artisans who make furniture from it, to our customers who bring our pieces home, everyone is treated with respect and fairness. 

Our furniture is made from farmed or reclaimed woods so there is zero deforestation. Our founders visit our suppliers and know them personally. We visit their factories and meet the artisans who product our pieces. 

Once shipped to Cambridge our furniture is stored in our Fawcett Street warehouse and sold directly. We don't rent fancy showrooms on main streets or pay for expensive advertising. At Artisans Trading we believe the furniture should speak for itself. A fair price for quality fair trade furniture. That's what we believe makes for fair business for everyone. 



Earth-Friendly Practices

We use only farmed or reclaimed wood. No laminates or particle boards that contain toxic glues or dust. Our pieces are hand made and built to last generations. 


Personal and Professional Service.

We work with all of our customers to make sure they know exactly what they're buying and they are happy with our product for years to come. We don't employ sales people, we employ designers with a passion for furniture. 

Local First

We are a furniture company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts and we never forget where we started. Our designs reflect our community. We design for both small urban apartments and historic single family homes.
