Shopper’s Diary: Canvas Home Store Online

We’ve been slavishly following Ochre since the furniture and accessory company’s early days (it was founded by three London art school friends—Harriet Maxwell McDonald, Joanna Bibby, and Solange de la Fouchardière); when Ochre opened a retail outpost in New York, we became frequent visitors (see Shopper’s Diary: Ochre in New York). And when Andrew Corrie, the husband of Harriet Maxwell McDonald, joined the company and launched a lower-price line called Canvas, featuring simple sustainable furniture and accessories created by artisans and craftsmen from the US and abroad, we began buying a lamp here, a pitcher there at the Soho shop. Now Canvas has launched an online commerce shop and it’s finally possible to order goods directly; go to Canvas Home Store to peruse the offerings.
