Launched in 2013, the Colossal Shop served as the best little online gift shop to one of the biggest art and design blogs online. For years, we shipped tens of thousands of design objects, toys, prints, and art supplies to happy customers in 75 countries. It was a labor of love, often at the cost of making real revenue for months on end, usually only during the holidays or special sales. The attention spent on running the store often vastly outstripped the returns at the expense of other more exciting projects. In 2019, we made the hard decision to close the shop and shortly after, were forced to abandon our Chicago offices due to the pandemic.
And we're back!
The shop is open again, and we're starting things slow. For the time being, Colossal will offer an ongoing rotation of brand merchandise, a monthly art print release, and small objects from our friends. In the coming months, we'll add exclusive pieces you only can find here, shipped from Chicago with love. Colossal Members receive deep discounts on all brand products.
The Colossal Shop has been featured in leading publications including National Geographic, Fast Company, Cool Material, Gizmodo, Martha Stewart, Architectural Digest, and Apartment Therapy.
