Canadian Je Ne Sais Quoi: Vancouver’s Le Marché St. George, Now Online

February 18, 2015

Whenever we’re looking for tabletop and entertaining ideas, we turn to the family of artists behind Le Marché St. George of Vancouver. Sisters Janaki and Klee Larsen, and Janaki’s husband, Pascal Roy, jointly own the combination corner cafe and market, where, amid the refrigerator cases, they know how to throw a rustic-chic party. Over the years they’ve also started offering hard-to-source housewares that are a celebration of natural colors and materials. We were happy to discover that their shop has just launched online–and one of the attractions is their own work.

N.B.: Much of her work is currently sold out, but more will be available soon.
