About Us

Ave Home (ah-vey) developed out of a passion for antique furniture and a desire to make classic design more accessible. Founded by husband and wife, Scott and Lisa Rickert, along with Lisa’s brother Jason Mobley, the New Orleans based company launched in 2016 with an assortment of living and dining room furniture. Today, Ave Home is expanding its product offerings with historically inspired pieces that are classic yet current – a mix of timeless silhouettes and exquisite finishes with modern elements. Ave Home is committed to providing quality, well-designed pieces that our customers will cherish for years to come.

Founder's Note


“Growing up in New Orleans, I was surrounded by beautiful antiques and developed a love for design. In an effort to recreate that classic look for less, I searched for antique reproductions, but struggled to find pieces that compared to the real thing. I saw an opportunity to combine my love of business and design, and in 2016 launched Ave Home.

Today, Ave Home offers a variety of styles ranging from 18th century French and Swedish, to more contemporary Art Deco and Hollywood Regency inspired pieces. We do our best to honor the design periods that give us so much inspiration by incorporating classic elements into each piece we create.”

Lisa Rickert, Co-founder & CEO

 

Our Products


All Ave Home pieces are designed in-house at our New Orleans office and manufactured by our partners in Indonesia. Each piece is made carefully by hand in small batches using sustainably sourced, high quality materials. We believe that details make all the difference, which is why each item is crafted using traditional joinery techniques and finished by hand. Hand carved details, beautiful hardware, and soft close glides are just a few of the things you can expect from an Ave Home design.

We think most beautiful homes are the ones with a personal point of view, so we aim to provide a range of different styles to fit a variety of tastes. Our line can be divided into three categories: Modern, Traditional and Raw. Each category is rooted in classic design, allowing it to stand alone or be mixed to create a look that’s uniquely you.
