canvas home is already well known across the pond and now the fashionable US brand has launched in the UK. Their products are a celebration of simple, modern and sustainable style, with a collection of everyday homewares inspired by the beauty of the hand crafted. The look is urban-chic-meets-country and their distinctive dinnerware and crafted flatware is available in a variety of handmade aesthetics and unique glazes.
New for autumn is the ‘Ciara’ dinnerware, which is a contemporary collection designed in collaboration with New York’s celebrated ceramicist Barbara Eigen.
"We are excited about our collaboration with Barbara Eigen. Together we have created ‘Ciara’ a limited edition collection of tableware of classic designs, which are fresh and organic in a contemporary style with canvas home’s understated glaze texture and colour.” - Simon Lee, partner at canvas home.
Other highlights are the vintage ‘Tin’ stoneware collection, the organic ‘Seagate’ and ‘Shell Bisque’ ranges, and the subtle yet glamorous ‘Dauville’ porcelain finished with metallic glazing. This range complements the newly expanded copper cutlery range and alongside the stainless steel, matt black and matte gold flatware collections.
The glassware has distinct personalities; simple shapes in delicate glass; hand-blown glass; stemware with a nod to modernity and fabulous coloured glasses. Textiles such as tea towels, napkins, table mats and runners in linen, cotton and bamboo fibres are casual, fun, and include seasonal colour pops and patterns.

canvas home was founded in America in 2008 by Andrew Corrie, a British designer and entrepreneur who believes that everyone’s ‘home is a blank canvas and how we use and edit it creates a unique personal environment.’ Simon Lee joined as a co-owner in 2014 and launched canvas home into the UK in spring/summer 2015.
This brand is also a strong advocate for artisans in developing countries and supports the Aid to Artisans, a 30 year old non profit organisation, which creates economic opportunities for artisans groups around the world where craft traditions or livelihoods are at risk.
