Our Schtick

At FLATS®, we know how to live well, always. We scour the world for great finds and ways to bring these ideas home. We design our own spaces. We are often small but are always mighty.

The FLATS® life is to create. To rearrange and rearrange again. To be nimble, yet heard. To pioneer. To love community. To have a home with a soul. Value, individuality, and character make us tick. Authenticity is our drug of choice. We are anything but expected. We create our own finishes. We thrive on bicycles and great coffee. Dogs keep us running.

We believe that living well is a necessity and we spend our lives curating what we simply call the FLATS® life.
