"We are really excited about our first step on what will become a site-wide e-commerce venture. Through this partnership, we are making it much easier for readers to improve their homes, express their own decorating style and begin a new home project."
"Together with This Old House, we are offering home enthusiasts a new way to engage with ideas and inspiration from one of America's most loved and trusted brands," said Niraj Shah, CEO and co-founder of Wayfair.com. "The This Old House Shop offers a unique window into Wayfair.com's vast selection of home goods – making it easier than ever to find the perfect products to bring a home project or décor idea to life."
The This Old House Shop will capture the brand's All-American style in the featured items and will showcase a wide range of home-related products from gardening, home organization, classic styles, tools and more. Upcoming highlights include "A Charming Cottage Kitchen," "Storage Ottomans," "Laundry Room Make-over," "Spring Gardening Must-Haves" and "Woodworking Tools". The Shop will also feature offerings across a variety of categories including furniture, lighting, faucets, textiles, tools and more.
