The idea for Namu Home Goods came at the end of 2020. You see, I’d spent the year (along with the rest of the world) addressing the cracks that only pure global calamity could bring up to the surface. I sat in meditation with myself, with no distractions and slowly redefined the definition of meaning, purpose, and success. Most of all, I prioritized what mattered: Health, relationships, taking care of self, and surrounding myself energetically with what makes me happy.
During my year of re-engineering, when everything around me felt off-kilter, I began to imagine myself as a tree—strong and alive—weathering the bitter winter, knowing the warmth of spring was just around the corner. I heard the tree whisper: “don’t let a season dictate your life”.
Namu means “tree” in Korean, and Namu Home Goods strives to highlight the natural beauty of wood—with an artist’s eye—as a reflection of harmony, harvest, and peace. I'm dedicated to unearthing gallery-quality woodwork from Korea, sourced with a distinctly Korean-American aesthetic. The offerings look as beautiful in a midcentury modern as they would in a traditional Hanok.
Enjoy the beauty of Namu Home Goods,

How should I care for my Namu piece?
Please do not place near your product near water or in an area with high humidity like a bathroom. All of Namu’s pieces are made in Korea from Korean wood. Because Korea’s climate differs from the U.S., and because the wood is still alive, your piece may crack and change color with weather, temperature, and sun exposure. We at Namu believe this is part of the beauty of wood art – that it grows old with us and still expresses its innate desires to change.
