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.
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..
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're very happy and hoping to expand the family soon! When they do, you will be the first to know!
Our items are made from locally sourced materials. Timber from local woodyards, grown sustainably and responsibly.
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 [email protected] 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.
