Local Love: Check out These 3 Local Creators Now at NFM
Almost 80 years and 4 stores later, Nebraska Furniture Mart is known across the country as America’s Largest Home Furnishing Store. With shipping available to almost every state in the US, and with 3 large retail stores in Omaha, Kansas City and Dallas it may seem like NFM is just another big box store. The reality is that it’s their Omaha roots and family culture that have allowed NFM to expand into other cities while not forgetting to support the communities that support them.
To tie back to the communities that are home to our stores, we have partnered with local creators to showcase their products in each NFM store. Each store will feature 3 vendors from each different region around our retail stores. We have brought a piece of Nebraska, Texas and Kansas to each store; showing that our local is not just in one place. Amongst the vast selection of furniture, flooring, appliances and electronics you’ll find the NFM Local Love showcase with products from 3 local creators.
First, we’re featuring Feya Candles from Lincoln, Nebraska. Their 100% hand-poured soy wax candles will add design and a wonderful smell to your home. With everything from French Vanilla & Amber to Sage & Lemongrass, you’re bound to find a smell for your style. Each candle purchase will give go towards a meal to someone in need. Feya Candle Co. partners with missions and soup kitchens across the country and around the world, including in countries like Haiti and Nicaragua.
Made with love in Austin, Texas Nebraska Furniture Mart will be carrying a line of hand-made bags from Newton Supply Co. Their high-quality bags are not just made to look good, but to be used every day. Sourcing local material when possible, Newton’s bags are produced in Austin and they have partnered with Open Arms, a social enterprise of the Multicultural Refugee Coalition. Inspired by the process of turning raw materials into quality goods, we encourage you to check out the gorgeous bags from Newton Supply Co. at Nebraska Furniture Mart.
Finally, connecting the loop to our Kansas City location we introduce glassware with sarcasm. Easy,Tiger is proudly designed in Kansas City and has taken vintage design and added a modern twist with its fun glassware. From the “Mug Life” coffee mug, to the “Beer Me” pub glass, Easy Tiger will bring a bit of interest to your glassware, and no doubt start some sarcastic conversations.
#NFMLocaLove is a new addition to each of our stores, and we hope that you will help us in supporting the local creators who help support the communities around Nebraska Furniture Mart.
