Canvas, a younger sibling to the glamorous New York/London design group and shop Ochre, has been a favorite source of ours since we discovered it several years ago. Founded by British ex-banker Andrew Corrie, the company features furniture, homewares, and accessories created by skilled artisans found locally and throughout the world, all based on the premise of "simple sustainable style."
In the Shelter Island home Corrie shares with his wife and business partner Harriet Maxwell McDonald and their two children, the ethos of Canvas is evident: soft tones, sustainable design, and understated elegance. Whitewashed pine-plank walls provide a rustic backdrop for Canvas and Ochre pieces, a well as other lines.
Currently, the company is offering one Remodelista reader a $1,000 shopping spree. To enter, sign up here.
