September, 2018, in a cafe in Kadikoy, Istanbul, talking about future plans and enjoying our honeymoon, my husband and I had an idea. Albeit, at the time it seemed hypothetical, it would quickly become a reality.
At the time, I was already working in the design industry, working with another company. Emre was working in manufacturing. It was at that moment that we decided to take the leap of faith to leave the comfort of our established careers and venture off into an exciting unknown. Within 4 months, we had launched Blackhaus Studios and took part in our first ever trade show. From there, we grew rapidly and have moved from strength to strength.
Fast forward 4 years, we are proud to say that not only has our business grown, but so has our family and our home (sometimes all at once). From this prosperity, Emre and I once again decided to turn the hypothetical into a reality, launching Uncommon Store, where the entire Blackhaus Studios catalogue can be found in a retail space. This has been so heavily requested by our customers, and we are so excited to be able to meet this need. Soon this service will be extended to furniture, homewares, and lifestyle products, all of which are selected with intention and purpose.
