Shift was founded in 2009 in Philadelphia with the ambition to create expressive options for outdoor lifestyles.

Together with architects, industrial designers and American manufacturers, Shift examines prevailing proportions, forms, materials and behaviors to craft new standards for outdoor living.

Shift is the furniture design and manufacturing arm of architecture and placemaking firm Shiftspace. Each object is manufactured in America through sustainable, contemporary techniques.



Furniture is integral to the way we experience life. Our designers study and reconsider the conventional to engage each design with a fresh story. The collection employs forms and materials, both natural and synthetic, that oppose a throwaway mentality and embraces durability.

Shift products have been featured in Design Milk, Sunset Magazine, Gear Patrol, Remodelista, and Apartment Therapy among other publications.

Our collection is available by inquiry and at our shop.
Visit the line in person at the Shift showroom or through one of our distributors.
