Hello and welcome! Thanks for stopping by, take some time to shop or explore the blog to see behind the scenes stories of projects, business ventures and new product releases. I also often share about our life as a family, my husband Paul and our four girls.

Art and design has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. I was lucky to be born in to a family with a culture that valued making things.   In the early 2000’s I studied fine art and graphic design in Alberta and worked freelance in design, sculpture and teaching art. I met and married Paul in 2005 and we began a family in our new home in Ontario. As a young mom at home with my girls, I enjoyed sewing and crafting which led to developing a business devoted to handmade home goods and accessories.

As it grew, my love for making useful things began to expand and I continued to add more elements and materials to my work. I began designing small furniture and working on interiors for homes and corporate/retail spaces. Many of the interiors I work on include custom furniture pieces that are made to fit in the space and solve problems or simply enhance the environment. Shop the online store for products in stock or message me if you have a custom design request. I’d love to work with you.

I hope you find inspiration and beauty here – Suzanne

  1. I wanted to reach out to thank you once again for your support of Rhino Conservation. Unfortunately we were not able to hold our Saving Sumatra event as planned this year as the CUPE Toronto Zoo union was out on strike at the time of our event and we have had to postpone the event until next June. We will save the donations you have made for that time.

    Just wanted to keep you in the loop. Thank you again so much for your support.
    Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
