Denvir Enterprises is a queer, woman-owned small business that is NGLCC certified. Did you know that when you purchase from DE, you're not only supporting our small business, but we can also help you satisfy your diversity quota?

Here at Denvir Enterprises, it's of the utmost importance to practice inclusivity. It is paramount to us for many reasons to work with a diverse group of clients, consultants, teammates, and brands. If we limit ourselves to certain perspectives, the outcome will be equally limited. If we explore a wide array of opinions, thoughts and cultures, the more exciting and dynamic the results will be.

All of our brands are small businesses. Below, read about their identities, along with diversity information and sustainability initiatives.
BAUX was established in Sweden by global industrial design studio Form Us With Love back in 2013. We often talk about the sustainable makeup of BAUX's materials and its technical applications. While sustainable solutions certainly drive the company's mission, BAUX is also focused on increasing awareness about good acoustic design and the health benefits associated with proper sound absorption. Good acoustics increase productivity, facilitate learning and reduce stress, and the world needs restful acoustics right now.
bläanks is a women-owned small business founded in 2017. Partners Judy and Suss have known one another for 25 years! After working separately in the fashion industry, they saw an opportunity in the interiors industry to do something different. bläanks, a commercial knit manufacturer, is the result. With an eye on ease of use and sustainability, bläanks is becoming a go-to for all industries, especially hospitality.
Debbie Bean is in the 7th year of running her eponymous stained glass company. A small, woman-owned business, Debbie has carved out quite a space for herself as a craftsperson in a niche industry. We love the fresh perspective she brings to interiors. After all, environments can affect moods, and colors can affect mental states. And Debbie wants to make sure the effects are positive. 🤗
Fyrn chairs, stools, and soon, tables, are the result of a lifelong love for craftsmanship and woodworking. With a stellar team based in San Francisco, founders Dave and Ros have built a small business that works sustainability into their manufacturing practices and company philosophy. Fyrn’s products are designed to be put together in a system of parts and pieces, not only streamlining manufacturing but also allowing for pieces to be replaced if needed — however, this is almost never needed! Word on the street is, Fyrn's claim rate is less than .10%!
In 2016, Ian Yang founded Gantri in San Francisco with a background in software and product design. As a small, minority-owned business, Gantri has turned into a one-of-a-kind digital manufacturing company that puts both the planet and designers first. We admire Ian's lofty vision, and love that he is trying to level the playing field for independent studios and nascent designers — all while making our spaces more beautiful.
Nomadory is a women-owned small business based in San Francisco with a global reach. Founders Akta and Vrnda started their company with minds to marry commerce and technology, and in doing so, they have built out a platform that digitizes supply chains while maintaining strong relationships with suppliers. Many of their suppliers in India are small, women-owned, or family businesses. As a minority-owned company, Nomadory is making it possible for the interiors industry to source from small artisans in a timely, cost-effective manner while being ethical and transparent. We're here for it.
Poketo was founded by husband and wife team Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung in 2003. What began as a small startup has become a go-to spot for its wide range of products that fuse lifestyle with art and discerning design. All of us here at DE own more than a few items from Poketo, and we encourage you to make this minority-owned company your go-to, too.
RAD Furniture! Look at this team. We love the working environment that founders Ryan and Russell have created at RAD HQ here in Los Angeles. With an eye for simple design and clean lines, this small business won't be small for much longer. Especially when you add in their philosophy around materials, sustainability, and commitment to manufacturing locally. Give them a heads up and stop by sometime if you can — you might even get to play a quick game of basketball after you peep some products.
Let's shift to Shift. (We love saying that.) Shift is actually called Shiftmakes, and was founded in 2009 by Tim and Mario of Shiftspace, as a response to a need for furniture that could easily fit into outdoor, landscaped environments. It has since grown into a healthy small business offering customizable, high impact furniture designs through low impact means and materials that fit indoors and outdoors.
“Hope is not about proving anything. It's about choosing to believe this one thing, that love is bigger than any grim, bleak shit anyone can throw at us.” ~Anne Lamott
