About Us

We transform things,.. furniture, homes, lives right here in Minneapolis Minnesota

Inspired by a chair on the street,….

louischair

What would you do if you saw a set of chairs tossed on the side of the road?

One guy had an idea, and that idea blossomed into a thriving business saving good furniture from landfills, giving consumers affordable luxury and helping non-profits along the way. Yeah, the set of Louis XVI chairs you see to your left were destined for extinction – that is until Carter Averbeck walked by and decided that things should be different.

IMG_1738Omforme: (verb) is a Norwegian word meaning ” To Transform”; and that is exactly what we do with vintage furniture and excess building materials to create singularly stylish furnishings for the home. This isn’t your typical home goods store. We are turning the industry upside down with inventive ideas to create sharp, trendy furnishings from old stock that hold their own in a luxury market. We like the challenge of good design using objects from the past and giving them a resurged value. That makes good sense in a marketplace overrun by cheap mass produced furnishings.

We’ve built a network of like minded individuals, artisans and craftsmen passionate about creating the beautiful from the mundane, thus making sure that perfectly good goods aren’t destroyed by simply tossing them aside. Educating consumers on how to “Reduce Reuse, Restore” is one thing, showing transformed furnishings that are utterly gorgeous is another. It is proof that great things can come from the most unexpected resources.

 

Great style is just that –  great style, no matter what the era.
