It’s been a while since our last Let’s Talk blog and so to jump back into this series we caught up with Michael, the founder of The Modern Shop. The Modern Shop opened in 2010, in Ottawa, to provide Canadians with fine modern lighting and furniture. In addition to their physical locations they have created an online modern design shopping experience for Canadians to get their hands on some of the best designer brands in the world.
I opened The Modern Shop in 2010 after selling vintage modern design furniture for almost 10 years. I realized that there was really no way to buy modern design in Canada online or in Ottawa, so I opened up a shop at our original location on Bank Street in Old Ottawa South.
I bought and sold vintage mid-century modern furniture for about 10 years prior to opening The Modern Shop.
Being one of the first in Canada to offer authentic modern design furniture online. We also teamed up with Shopify early, they helped build our brand while we were guinea pigs in their early platform.
I love the Moooi brand. Almost every product they release is magical.
We ship everything from $1 erasers to $50,000 chandeliers all over the country.
Box sizing. We sell a wide range of products of all shapes and sizes. It’s really difficult to find the perfect box to fit our needs.
Great first impression, secondly and most importantly it must do a good job protecting the product in transit.
Keep finding new and inspiring designs to offer Canadians.
