Greycork Opens New Showroom on Thayer

The local, US manufactured company aims to take the stress out of furniture shopping


We all know how stressful furniture shopping can be. Luckily Greycork, a groundbreaking furniture company started in Providence by Brown Grads in 2013, is here to help. Created with a focus on making online shopping easier and more accessible, using US manufactured products, and selling at affordable prices, Greycork also offers free home try-out. They send you fabric and wood samples from their chic and easy-to-build pieces so you can find exactly what you want and ensure that it works in your home. Founder and CEO John Humphrey explains his team’s desire for “a business model centered around today’s lifestyle, namely that of the millennial generation, who values quality, moves homes regularly and is more inclined to make purchases online.”

While it’s a breeze to browse and order from their website, you can now check out Greycork’s style up close at their newly opened showroom on Thayer Street. “We love being here on Thayer Street, and we love when guests come in to visit us and test our furniture. There has been a steady flow of people coming to the showroom, which is great to see,” says John. “We’re excited to make the showroom experience even better, and to add more imagery to our website and social media to share it with more people.” The light and airy showroom is a dream to explore, the high-ceilinged space packed with the modern minimalist pieces that are signature to Greycork.

So check out their website or Instagram page to see what Greycork’s all about – or stop into their showroom for a more personal peek. What could be cooler than checking out some hip interior design? Donuts. That’s right; PVDonuts will be in the showroom every Thursday morning for lucky visitors who come early.
