Yes, and

Loose Parts is born out the belief that humans are natural builders. We adapt our interiors every day to meet our changing needs.

This “yes, and” attitude demonstrates a natural and creative approach to how we live, work and make a space our own.

Our name “Loose Parts” was inspired by architect and artist Simon Nicholson who wrote an essay about fostering curiosity and creativity in children through the number of variable available to them.

Theory of Loose Parts by Simon Nicholson, 1971

“In any environment, both the degree of inventiveness and creativity, and the possibility of discovery, are directly proportional to the number and kind of variables in it” 

A home is an assembly of loose parts.

Now he was writing about fostering curiosity and creativity in children, but we believe this idea applies to the modern home.

It is our mission is to design sustainable and creative opportunities for people to engage with their interiors and the objects that fill their lives.

With the goal of ultimately reducing furniture landfill waste, encouraging reuse, and inspiring individual acts of agency.

Jennifer June founded Loose Parts with the desire to connect people more deeply to their environment.

Raised in a multi-ethnic household, June’s childhood was split between Costa Rica and Southern California. She understood early on that homes are not bound by four walls - they are a continuous adaptive reflection of people, culture and values.

Her designs build upon the observation: homes happen not through perfection, but out of participation.
