I had the chance to tour the Homepolish offices a few weeks ago, and chat with the team about how far they’ve come in the last 2.5 years (spoiler alert: really really far)! Here is part 2 of the Homepolish co-founder Savvy Tastemaker series.
Will Nathan is a true modern man: co-founder of a successful home decor startup, frequent Mr Porter shopper, and avid connoisseur of the finer things in life: from buffalo wings to white peonies.
Self-described as a chic mountain man, he’s halfway into reading Time’s top 100 novels of all time. He shares truly invaluable entertaining secrets and—judging from his fascinating dream dinner party guest list—his parties are not ones you’d want to miss.
