Elegant Themes is one of the best premium WordPress theme companies

Most known for their popular Divi theme, Elegant Themes also makes a ton of other premium themes that are worth checking out, most notably the Extra theme.

StudioPress is the company behind the popular Genesis framework, as well as a number of themes built upon that framework. In 2018, they were acquired by WP Engine, the popular managed WordPress host.

If you’re a WP Engine customer, you now get all the StudioPress themes for free. If you’re not, you can still purchase any StudioPress themes that catch your eye.

5. GeneratePress


Ok, GeneratePress isn’t really a shop so much as a single premium theme. But it is the theme that we use here at WPLift so we’d be remiss if we didn’t include GeneratePress on this list of premium WordPress theme companies.

Pixelgrade is the shop beyond some truly gorgeous themes. They made the news for taking advantage of ThemeForest’s move to author-driven pricing to price their PILE theme at $225. Their other themes are often $100+, but I think it’s worth it for the design quality.
