We Have an Announcement to Make…

HW Home is a proud Colorado company, and throughout our 17 years we’ve forged relationships, developed our own line of furniture, and helped create beautiful homes in Colorado and around the world. We’ve grown immensely, and to accommodate our thriving business, we expanded beyond our Pearl Street location in Boulder to open stores in both the Landmark at Greenwood Village and Cherry Creek North. And now (drumroll please), we’re excited to announce that we will open our newest store in Fort Collins in late summer!

Meet Beverly, Senior Design Consultant

If you’ve ever visited one of our stores, you’ve probably had a friendly chat about sectionals, throw pillows, or overall interior design with our talented team members. Everyone at HW Home strives to bring something special to your shopping experience.

Meet another one of our remarkable team members, Bev, who has been with HW Home since the inception of the company. You may know her as the longtime Senior Design Consultant from our Boulder store, or as the sister of HW Home President and Co-founder, Ron Werner. Bev’s story of becoming part of Team HW Home is also the story of how HW Home came to be!

It goes something like this: “In 1998, my brother Ron and his partner Jim visited my husband and me. They planned to help us design our recent home remodel and search for new furniture. As we shopped, they were both shocked that there were very few options for finding stylish, unique, and quality pieces. They told us not to buy anything yet, and to give them some time to think. A few months later they called to say they were moving to Boulder from Chicago, opening a “little” shop, and that they wanted to bring me into the business and teach me about design. The rest is history!”

Kika Cocktail table

Working for the same family-owned company for the last 17 years is sure to create  special memories. Bev’s favorite is “when we first opened the doors in Boulder in June 1999, the community was so excited! They were blown away at how beautiful the store was.” And, we’re pleased to report that, as we’ve grown, the reception for our Cherry Creek and Greenwood Village stores has been equally warm.

Wanting to give our readers a few “insider secrets,” Bev says her favorite piece of furniture currently on the showroom floor is our Kika Cocktail Table in the White Milpa Wood Finish. She notes, “At the moment, I’m in love! It’s truly stunning!” If she could custom design any piece of furniture, it would be the perfect buffet for her dining room. She says, “My husband and I just scaled down and moved after 18 years into a much smaller home. I had a difficult time finding the perfect buffet that would fit into the space, look stunning, and provide the functionality that I need for storage.”

And as for enjoying life outside of work? Bev loves caring for her 10-month-old granddaughter Ella, running marathons, and cycling on the HW Home Girls’ Cycling Team in support of Children’s Hospital Colorado!

Why We Love Lucite (and Why You Should, Too)

Acrylic glassor Lucite, if you know it by its brand namehas an intriguing history. Once used by bombers and submarines in WWII, the material underwent a transformation from utilitarian to luxurious after the war when it was no longer necessary for use in combat. Acrylic glass became widely licensed, and designers from both the fashion and furniture sectors realized the potential for this chic and flexible material.

How True by HW Home Goes From Idea to Reality

The development of the True line of furniture by HW Home was born out of necessity. After years of curating well-made and well-designed furnishings crafted by our wonderful manufacturers, the buying team at HW Home determined that not all of our customers’ needs were being fully met. In order to fill this void, we set out to create unique, high-quality furniture. In doing so, we have opened up a world of opportunity for our Colorado company, as well as for our customers.
