KMH Upholstery Furniture Line Features Made-to-Order Furniture

Chicago-area designer Kate Marker just launched her own furniture line – Kate Marker Upholstery (available on Skimlinks & ShareASale).

Kate runs 3 businesses -  an interior design firm, a product business (in which she sells both products she designs and wholesales), and vacation rentals - and has built her business (including a very large Instagram following) organically.

Drawing inspiration from her own home, the KMH Upholstery Collection features made-to-order furniture pieces that are consciously sourced and handcrafted in the USA. The collection includes exclusive signature prints (designed by Kate and her daughters) and high-performance fabrics.

Kate’s furniture collection is environmentally responsible, using certified sustainable wood and low VOC finishes. The lead times are super-efficient, with custom manufacturing in 6 weeks or less, and white-glove delivery service ensures that each piece arrives safely at its destination.

One of the sofas is also from her very popular (and booked a year in advance) AirBnb - the Leo Cottage - so is designed to be the perfect sofa for anyone with kids, pets or renters.

The Leo Cottage, a 3 bedroom vacation home is a casual aesthetically curated cottage, from the lakeside feel to the thoughtfully designed interior. It is designed and owned by the firm of Kate Marker Interiors, whose work has been recognized by Architectural Digest and touted as Domino’s “20 designers to watch,” this home offers the best combination of beauty and comfort in the heart of Union Pier, Michigan.

That area is known for mom-and-pop bakeries, destination design stores, woodsy gravel roads and Lake Michigan beach access. There are plenty of biking paths, vineyards and distilleries within a short distance that draw families and couples throughout the Midwest.
