Appointed is an American-made brand of thoughtfully designed desktop products that make utility look luxurious. Following an exhaustive yet unsuccessful search to find well made and refined desktop products that are manufactured in the U.S., we decided to create our own. Practical, beautiful and handcrafted of the finest materials, Appointed goods are designed to elevate the work experience.

Appointed was founded by graphic designer, Suann Song, who believes a beautiful work environment fosters creativity, productivity and overall well-being. Each Appointed product is created with this philosophy in mind — while keeping design, functionality and craftsmanship our highest priority.

We are proudly based in Ivy City, Washington, D.C. where our products are designed, finished and packed with care. The entire Appointed product line and a curated selection of our favorite products are available for purchase in a showroom located in our office. Please view our contact page for store hours and our location.

Launched on Kickstarter

In March 2015, Appointed launched and successfully raised funding through a Kickstarter campaign. The funds raised from the campaign were used to put our first product — the notebook — into production. The notebook is our signature product as we believe a notebook represents untapped potential and endless possibility. To see the genesis of Appointed see our Kickstarter campaign and video here.
