A small company thinking big.
Beau and Meggan Wynja launched World Effect, a home décor and furnishings company in 2008 by traveling around the world for 2 years visiting 48 countries. Along the way they met with artisans, fair trade organizations and small family businesses to develop their products and find inspiration for more designs to come.
Travel has influenced both the way World Effect’s products are designed as well as the way they conduct their business. World Effect designs are contemporary reinterpretations of the cultures, art, architecture, food and everything else that inspires while discovering the world we live in. Socially and environmentally responisble practices are a cornerstone of World Effect’s business model. They are passionate about supporting Fair Trade, giving back to the communities they work with and minimizing their impact on the environment.
All World Effect products fall into one or a combination of three categories: Artisan, Environment and Global Local. Learn more about these in “Our World.”
