"We named our company after the Wavertree, which is a historic iron-hulled sailing ship built in 1885. If you notice our shelves all have a boat shape to them, an understated nod to their nautical roots.”
Paying homage to midcentury design, coastal living and a love of fine woodwork, husband and wife team Lee and Olivia build quirky, minimalist shelving in rounded teardrop shapes. As collectors of small objects and knickknacks, the duo is very familiar with the desire to showcase these treasures. Their bentwood shelves start with hand-selected cedar pieces, which are then steamed, bent and hardened into their signature droplet shapes. Depending on the design, they’re fitted with one or more shelves with dividers and topped with a rope loop for hanging. The sturdy shelves can hold anything you tend to accumulate, whether your thing is collecting photo frames, ceramic cats or desert plants.
