HOME RETAIL 

Maker + Place curates cutting edge design products and homeware from all over the world. Most of our products are hand crafted from start to finish by devoted makers who create with passion and love. We selectively curate and work with our makers to create one-of-a-kind pieces for our special Aspen audience. 

We encourage our craftsmen and designers to create responsibly by creating a set of badges that reflect our philosophy. We hold each maker to high standards so the products we offer create happy, healthy, clean homes.

DESIGN STUDIO

Beyond retail, Maker + Place acts as a transparent design studio. We feature in-store craftsmen who take residency in open air studios, available for custom commissions. We offer the opportunity to meet and build a dynamic relationship with local craftsmen and makers, getting the chance to enter into their creative spaces while your products are being made.

In addition, we are available to create anything your heart desires! Our team is packed with trained creatives from all industries who are always eager for a new challenge.

Please get in touch for collaboration or commission inquiries.
