there’re two things that brighten up my weekend: a cup of coffee and our brand new accent lamp from The Apothecary collection heart_eyes

About

At Home with the Beavers

Here at Local Beavers, we are passionate about our home - we spend so much time in it and we want it to be just right. That's why we extended our passion to helping others achieve the same in their homes! We love making and sourcing unique design items that thrill, delight and inspire; we know you'll love them too.

Wether it's the table lamp that's a talking point at every gathering, the shelving unit that adds a modern twist to a classic room or just the random piece of art that 'sits' exactly right; we have it and we can get it to you fast, reliably and with minimum fuss.

Sourcing.
Our items are made from locally sourced materials. Timber from local woodyards, grown sustainably and responsibly.

Who we are.
We are based in Ukraine, the co-founders (A husband - British - and wife - Ukrainian - team) having decided to live there after meeting while he was working for an IT company. They fell in love and got married shortly after..

A while later, he realised he was not satisfied with the company he worked for and set up what became his fourth business. Hannah, his wife soon joined him, and, with her bent for decoration and design; she added the style and flair to his craftsman furniture.

Between them they created a team and have been working and supporting the local ex-pat community in Ukraine for several years. Now with the addition of their Etsy shop, site and support team, they are able to provide the same level of service, style and creativity to clients around the world. They are very happy and hoping to expand the family soon! When they do, you will be the first to know!

Shipping.
Our shipping has been described by some as 'expensive'. We disagree, when you factor in the time it takes us to deal with returns and breakages, the time it to takes you to do the same, along with parcels left in bins and in trees (Yes, this happened), we decided to make sure that the quality of our shipping matched our items.

Of course, if you have a preference or a courier service you love, we will be happy to accommodate you - just drop us a line at contact [!at] localbeavers.com and someone will look after you, however requests of this nature are undertaken at your own risk. We spent a lot of time interviewing and testing courier services around the world. We wanted to test their reliability, transparency, ease of parcel collection and communication and are happy that we use the best.


We want your time with us to be as delightful as possible. The items that you'll purchase are as much a reference for us, as they are beautiful additions to your home.

Frequently asked questions
I see photos of your gift wrapped items, but It seems like it's an extra option in checkout. Is it? If so, why?

Great spot! Yes, for this year, ALL our items come gift wrapped, for free. We have the option in checkout, which you may choose if you wish, however we would refund you the money automatically. Gift wrapping is free. When we send you your item, we want you to be as excited as we were making and sending it, and this helps. You're totally getting a present from us! :D

Are your lamps and boards really handmade? The cuts seem very perfect and the finish seems very professional?

Thank you! :D In fact, George went into the local branch of the DIY superstore we buy our tools from, and the guard on the door on the way out wanted to see the receipt for the spice rack he was carrying (Having just bought new picture hooks for the backs). He was very excited. Truth is he is just really skilled at making things. We will upload some pics of our workspace and so on soon :) Check our website too for our photo galleries! :)

Wholesale availability

We often get asked about providing wholesale on our lamps. The answer is although we would love the opportunity, each lamp is unique. Once the bottles are used and designed into a lamp, it becomes one of a kind. Unfortunately, unless you have an idea for a collection or selection you'd like, we can't do this. Sorry!

Custom and personalised orders

Can you build me something? Answer: Yes! George loves a challenge and will be more than happy to work with you to design something that is perfect, either size or item-wise, for you and/or your home! We have built a few things, including lamps, home decor style pieces and various planters and so on. We can work with wood, electronics (LED or generic lamps) and a selection of metalwork is available. We will ask for a deposit on the item when work begins, with the remainder paid when we are ready to ship your item. Go nuts, let your imagination go and let's see what we can come up with for you :D
