Nicole Wakley’s childhood dream of opening a furniture store with sustainability and high-quality craftsmanship at its roots came to life in 2005 in Hong Kong. She’d left her job as a corporate attorney and traveled the world. What she discovered was the beauty and simplicity found in vintage wood pieces. These discoveries were what inspired her to open TREE.
TREE offers contemporary and rustic pieces to complement any style, including lighting and décor, for every room. After finding tremendous success with several locations in Hong Kong, Wakley decided to enter the U.S. market. She has now put down roots in the Pacific Northwest. She brings her vision of TREE to life by providing sustainably sourced, eco-chic furniture at three Puget Sound locations.
TREE’s expansive South Sound showroom can be found inside a historically protected building in Tacoma’s Brewery District. The company’s most recent boutique, opened at Point Ruston over the summer, treats shoppers to a glimpse of the types of treasures they can expect to find at the larger Tacoma showroom. The third boutique is located in Bellevue’s Design Market.
Each location is dedicated to serving clients’ needs in-store and with home styling and design. TREE offers complimentary in-home design services, whether “home” is a small apartment, a large farmhouse or office, or something in between. TREE is passionate about helping clients create spaces that are livable, healthy and joyful.
A deep respect for the environment is paramount and at the heart of everything at TREE. In addition to partnering with those who share its values, TREE supports local nonprofit groups Forterra and Compass 360. It also supports TREE4TREE, an Indonesian nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting natural forests.
Check out one of TREE’s three Puget Sound locations and be prepared to fall in love with all things eco-chic.
