THE ‘WOW’ FACTOR

unique, wow, sophie lovellIf you desire something unusual and special, then cruise our galleries (both sold and available) to see what our inspiration, philosophy, and creative thought has produced.

We believe our pieces can function at an art level because they address issues, explore concepts and express thoughts.

They are unique, one-of-a-kind and personal. We try to blur the line between utility and art.

We would be happy to talk with you about creating anything! We both enjoy the challenge and reward of translating your interests and lifestyle into a commissioned piece that reflects you.

“…a greater contingent of homegrown designers both established and emerging is not only finding success in Canada, but forging a national aesthetic based on attention to materials, robust lines, cheeky humour and a marked eco-consciousness.”
-Danny Sinopoli, The Globe and Mail

“…individuality and singularity implies rarity, which breeds desire”
-Sophie Lovell

Design: Green Card

In all aspects of our business, we try to create a built environment that is socially, environmentally and economically responsible.

  • employee transportation to work: we walk!
  • heating bills: our studio always has the fanciest firewood and birchbark to burn as waste and/or uses renewable clean electricity
  • community involvement: see What’s New: Interesting Stuff: School’s Out
