Furnishing a Better World: This is the premise of the Arhaus design philosophy; it dates back to 1986 when the father and son John and Jack Reed opened the first store location in the historic Flats District downtown Cleveland and vowed never to use wood from the world's endangered rainforests in the making of an Arhaus design. Today, nearly 50 percent the product assortment is made of recycled material—everything from glass, to metals like copper and reclaimed wood from buildings no longer standing and vessels no longer set sail. Timbers are either reclaimed or sustainably sourced.
A Port City Called Arhus: The Danish port city Århus (pronounced ohr-HOOSE) inspired the name. John came across Arhus on a map and took an immediate liking. After a few minor modifications, "Arhaus" represented the warmth and luxury of the then (and now) home furnishings offered.
Store Footprint: Stores average 16,000+ sq. ft. and are filled with one-of-a-kind handcrafted home furnishings reflective of a distinct global point-of-view.

Arhaus was founded in 1986 by Jack Reed and his son John. The first store opened in downtown Cleveland as part of the Flats district in a building from the 1840s; thirty years later Arhaus now has locations in over 25 states. The store’s name was inspired by the Danish city Aarhus; after seeing the name, John Reed found a variation that conveyed an international feeling, combining his original inspiration with the German word for house.
Jack Reed had a vision of a company that would sell unique products sourced from all over the world. Arhaus has partnered with vendors for over twenty years to ensure quality and consistency; vendors become more than just business partners, they become friends and family as both businesses expand. CEO John Reed says, “as we grow, they grow.” Arhaus works with vendors across the world to find handcrafted one-of-a-kind products. Amish-Americans in Ohio dry wood for years to create the Live Edge collection; iron artisans in Mexico forge iron frames for bar stools by hand. Arhaus buys directly from manufacturers who share the Arhaus vision for quality, design, and sustainability.
Since the beginning of the company Arhaus has been committed to sustainability, and today Arhaus demonstrates those values through a philanthropic partnership with American Forests. Arhaus has never used wood from endangered forests in their furniture–all of the wood used today is sustainably sourced or recycled. Almost half of the raw materials used to create Arhaus products are recycled, including glass, metal, and wood. Arhaus is also passionate about using organic fibers and materials in furniture, creating high quality pieces you can feel good about.
