Modern Karibou Canadian Home Decor


Founded by Carole and Lise, this Canadian home decor company prides itself on highlighting "the creations of established and emerging designers and artists from around the world and champions and celebrates home-grown, innovative talent." Find out more about the co-founders and the rest of their efforts here.

Modern Karibou highlights Canadian made and eco-friendly products on their website, which I love. 

Here are just a few of my favourites:

Centrifuge Transit mailboxes - inspired by Toronto subway system
Raised Feeder - Made in Vancouver. I've seen this in person and it is a must-have for my future dog!

Cork and bamboo filing cabinet

Splash Side Table - in locally sourced walnut or reclaimed chestnut

What are your favourite items from the store? How much importance do you place on the origin and eco-friendliness of products that you purchase?
