Etsy Headquarters NYC

Photos by Ty Cole

I had the pleasure to meet two Etsy folks, Randy J Hunt and Dave Brown, for lunch today. Even though Etsy’s headquarter is only two blocks away from swissmiss studio, I never had a chance to stop by. That changed today! Dave gave me a big tour and needless to say, I was quite impressed. Not only do they have a fulltime chef (!), they also bought all their furniture and decoration off Etsy. What struck me is that their office is a 100% true to their brand. The office maintains the handmade feel of the products they carry. Impressive.

Did you see those big giant orange lamps? And the curtains?
