Maiden Home, founded by Nidhi Kapur, partners with artisans and family-owned factories in North Carolina to create high-quality furniture customized to the buyers specifications. But because the brand designs in-house and sells products on its own website, without going through a retailer, it is able to charge $2,000 for a fully personalized sofa and $900 for an armchair, which is on par with brands like West Elm. Products are then delivered directly to the consumer’s house, at no additional charge.
