Grand Rapids Chair Co

Michigan-based furniture company Grand Rapids Chair Co approached us seeking help with the launch of their first residential furniture line, Only Good Things. Working with their team, we developed a brand narrative and media strategy targeting national trade and consumer-focused publications.

As this was Grand Rapids Chair Co’s first venture into the residential market, we developed a strong narrative focused on the company’s history and reputation for high-quality furniture in the hospitality space. Only Good Things combines commercial-grade quality and modern design to create one-of-a-kind pieces for the home. We were able to secure placements in a variety of national publications including Business of Home, MMQB, Hypebae, Inhabitat, Green Building & Design, and more.

Amy's always had an appetite for adventure. Growing up in Seattle, she was always exploring the great outdoors whether hiking, swimming or skiing but she found a particular thrill in traveling. During a visit to New York City with her Mom at age 10, she decided that was where she wanted to live. At age 18, she left her home in the Pacific Northwest behind for the great unknown in the Bronx. Four years later, Amy received her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Fordham University. During the last final of her college career, Amy received a phone call from CNN offering a job opportunity of a lifetime (at least to a 21-year-old during the financial crisis) working in television ad sales at Manhattan's Time Warner Center. When a job opportunity in Los Angeles opened up a few years later, Amy couldn't say no to a new adventure back on the west coast. But Seattle eventually called her back home and Amy returned to pursue a Master's degree in Business Administration with the hopes of learning the skills she needed to feed her entrepreneurial spirit. Before graduating, Amy co-founded Paxson Fay with Tessa Andrews in 2015. Amy focuses on marketing strategy, public relations, social media, and partnerships.

Tessa graduated from Fordham University in New York. During her time at Fordham, she worked for an interior designer and at NBC News where she developed her love for both design and communications. She graduated with a dual bachelors in Communications and Political Science, and then managed marketing at 3form, a pioneer in the sustainable building products industry. At 3form she combined her love for design with her expertise in marketing. After 3form, Tessa helped companies in architecture and design with their marketing efforts as a freelancer. She is a self-professed nomad, having travelled the world over and back again. She moved to South Africa in 2014, where she traded business knowledge for artisan craft skills, and almost died rafting the Zambezi. It was around that time she decided the gypsy life was beginning to be a bit much and found her home right here in Seattle, where she joined forces with Amy to start Paxson Fay.
