The Best B.C.-Made Items for Your Home

Homegrown and handmade home and decor picks that are sure to add a touch of West Coast cool to your space

British Columbia Serving Board, $84

This province-shaped serving board is handcrafted and custom made from renewable bamboo so you can serve up appies and snacks in green style.

Available at Nineteen Ten

Floor Pillows, from $169

Gallant & Jones is known as much for their bright, patterned textiles as they are for their ethically made and eco-friendly designs – and these vibrant floor pillows are no exception. The fun, palm-leaf print adds the perfect pop of colour to spaces indoors and out.

Available online at Gallant and Jones

Tea Towel in Wildwood Plaid, $22

Inspired by the natural simplicity of Scandinavian design, this tea towel by Lissu is made from pure linen, which fights off bacteria (so long, smelly towels!), holds up to 20 times its water weight, and is stain-resistant to boot.

Available at Sunnyside

Growler Carrier, $79

This one isn’t so much for using at home, but we can’t resist this rich, tailored design by Greff that ensures our brews make it to lunch (or dinner) in chilled style.

Available at Old Faithful Shop

Woodlot Candle, $29

Vancouver-based makers, Woodlot, have made quite the name for themselves with an ever-expanding collection of aromatic goods, but our favourite remains their original wax candle – an exotic blend of eucalyptus, sandalwood, and orange, inspired by the native trees of Stanley Park.

Available online at Woodlot

Reclaimed Wood Serving Board, $50

Union Wood Co. was born from the nostalgia of Gastown’s solid wood docks, foundries, and mills, so it’s only natural that the East Vancouver shop hand-makes its serving boards – along with an array of vintage-inspired furniture and decor – from a mix of reclaimed fir, oak, and walnut.

Available online at Union Wood Co.

Woven Orca Blanket, $100

Featuring depictions of an orca and running surfer, this double-knit (and reversible) throw by Forest & Waves is an ode to the natural beauty and laid-back lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest.

Available at Much and Little

Herringbone Dip Tray, $48

These clean, porcelain trays – hand-built by Vancouver designer, Heather Braun Dahl, of daulhaus – are dipped in bright hues that make them a cheery addition to any desk or tabletop.

Available online at daulhaus

Handcrafted “Beer” sign, $350

Woodworker and designer Jeremie Laguette crafts each of his pieces by hand every step of the way – from the initial lettering to the final coat of paint. He also takes custom orders, lest you prefer a truer West Coast interpretation (one word: craft).

Available on Etsy

Handmade Two-part Terrarium, $59.95

Designer Ana Maliatski creates contemporary ceramics and home decor under the name GolemDesigns and this air plant terrarium stays true to her signature style: cool, slightly rustic, and undeniably unique.
