Whimsical nature-inspired luxury homeware designs by Michael Aram

Whether you’re holiday shopping or finding something for your own home, we’ve got a lot of great housewares and home décor available at our reuse warehouse and online on the Community Forklift Marketplace. From modern luxury items to unique vintage designs, there are pieces at below market prices for all sorts of tastes.

One of the more recent additions to the Marketplace is a collection of beautiful pieces by award-winning metal-ware designer Michael Aram. Known for his luxury home and jewelry designs, Michael’s whimsical and witty work is inspired by nature and mythology. Check out the collection below and visit the Community Forklift Marketplace for more information. To see the pieces in person, visit the reuse warehouse any day between 12 and 5 pm.

Please note: In order to help prevent community spread of Covid, flu, and RSV during the holiday season, we are reinstating our mandatory facemask policy at the reuse warehouse for Community Forklift customers and employees. The policy will be in effect until at least January 8, 2023, at which point we’ll revaluate. Thank you for helping keep our community safe this season!
