WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE HOM PRODUCT LINE?
The HOM line of products was inspired by the love of indoor/outdoor living and the opportunity to provide balance to our busy lives by connecting with nature in a simple, low-impact, and stylish way.
WHO ARE THE DESIGNERS BEHIND HOM?
An expert team of architects, interior designers, landscape architects, product and brand experience designers from the award-winning KAA Design Group in Los Angeles, California.
WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER BUYING A HOM INSTEAD OF BUILDING ONE ON-SITE?
Quality, speed, efficiency and a smaller footprint on our environment. Factory production streamlines and expedites the process of manufacturing and transportation by utilizing a controlled environment to increase quality and reduce environmental impact by limiting construction waste, material and labor transportation requirements. Speed and efficiency result in a viable economic solution. For more on the craft and quality we put into each HOM please see our pdf specifications on the dwellings.
WHAT MAKES HOM ECO-FRIENDLY?
HOM Escape In Style™ was created around the idea that living simply and ecologically doesn’t have to come at the cost of style or comfort. HOM products include natural, sustainable, non-toxic materials including FSC certified woods for the furniture, organic linens, LED light bulbs and recycled aluminum. HOM dwellings are built in a controlled factory setting that minimizes construction material waste, economizes on labor, and ensures the level of quality that allows them to last for decades. HOM dwellings are also built using an existing infrastructure. All HOM products are made to last — including materials that are as easy and comfortable outdoors as they are indoors. We also believe in giving back to environment with each and every sale and that is why we choose to be a 1% For The Planet Member.
