About Us

 
 
 

our story

something here

Established in California and based in Seattle, The Savvy Heart was founded by husband and wife-to-be, Terra Link and Jacob Rideout.  The Savvy Heart got it's start in early 2014 as an outlet for Terra’s creativity and Jacob’s passion for business. Terra taught herself how to make jewelry and started selling her collection at various pop-ups in San Francisco.  The collection sold better than both of them were expecting it to. Jacob quickly got involved and took over the business aspect to help the company grow. After a few pop-ups, the two realized that they had a much bigger vision for the company. At the end of 2014, the two relocated their life and The Savvy Heart to Seattle. The company was re-branded to reflect their true vision as a creative design studio. The two now offer a collection of interior goods and gifts as well as custom design services.

Their work has garnered attention from Seattle Met, British GQ, Seattle Times and My Domaine. 

 
 
 
The Savvy Heart evolved from a desire to start a company that encompassed both of our passions, design, and business. Each day we are challenged to solve problems and are faced with new dilemmas, forcing us to be nothing less than savvy.

IV.

Never stop learning

We started this business knowing we would have to be savvy in every way we could. That meant brushing up on our old skills and learning to master more. Turning our designs and sketches into a reality is a challenge, especially when working with a new medium. But we've learned that the knowledge behind how something is made is invaluable. It enables us to push boundaries of what's possible, making for a more unique product and forcing us to become better designers.
