Influent Home is a boutique furniture showroom located in Berkeley, CA that opened its doors in the fall of 2015. We started this business to provide a curated selection of furniture and accessories to the growing East Bay population as an alternative to driving to San Francisco. The flow of people moving out of the big city to Berkeley, Oakland, Albany and the surrounding areas has created a need for more accessible furniture and accessories.
With the growth of the Internet and the ability to find just about anything you want there, it is vital to any business to offer its goods online. We have worked very hard to establish an online presence that allows customer access to our fine furniture and decor at a competitive price with discounted shipping rates. As we grow and add to our inventory, we continue to strive for an excellent customer experience all the way from product selection to delivery. We invite you to contact us if you ever have any questions.
We will always be a small business that offers a personal touch. As the Internet continues to grow, we find it more important than ever to have our items in a brick and mortar store where the customer can experience our products firsthand. To be able to touch a fabric, see a color or finish, or just speak with someone in person are priceless elements that the Internet can not duplicate. At least not yet.
We offer a wide range of products carefully selected to be unique, functional and beautiful. All of our products are of the highest quality and we take great pride in the relationships we have formed with these fine makers of furniture and decor.
