18KARAT’S WHOLESALE DIVISION MAKES PRODUCTS AVAILABLE TO RETAILERS, INTERIOR DESIGNERS AND ARCHITECTS THROUGHOUT NORTH AMERICA AND THE WORLD. FROM HANDMADE OBJECTS INSPIRED BY NATURE, TO MINIMALIST FURNITURE, OUR MANDATE IS TO BALANCE FUNCTIONALITY WITH BEAUTY.

WE FOLLOW A SIMPLE, MODERN DESIGN PHILOSOPHY.
We create places that are peaceful and an antidote to the hype and over-stimulation of our daily lives. We have a reverence for the wonder of nature and it shows in our modern home décor and furniture. We believe in sensual, natural and comfortable places that are not ostentatious, and we believe that everyone–from the most humble to the most wealthy–should live with thoughtful, respectful and beautiful things.

WE ADVOCATE A LESS-IS-MORE PHILOSOPHY.
We design and import our products for longevity, and do not advocate disposability. We show our home accessories and modern furniture in uncluttered rooms, purposefully placed and recommend a reductionist attitude, which we believe is also very stylish.


WE ARE INSPIRED BY WHERE WE LIVE
Our journey always brings us home to our own roots within the natural beauty of the Pacific North West. Here we are inspired by the ancient boreal forests surrounding us, the coastal mountains towering over us and the rich ocean life beneath us. Natural textures and forms come to life as beautiful, useful and sensual home décor products reflecting the colors of the natural world.

WE HAVE A POSITIVE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT.
We always look for the opportunity to use natural materials that are easily renewable, or where extraction will help the local environment. We use elemental materials that bring us a renewed appreciation for the natural world, focusing on wood, metal, stone, clay, glass, natural fibre fabrics and plant materials.


WE TELL YOU STORIES ABOUT THE PRODUCTS WE SELL.
We tell you about how our home décor products are made, where they come from, who made them and why. We believe that if you know about the provenance of an object, you will have a greater appreciation for what you are buying.

WE REFUSE TO WORK WITH UNETHICAL COMPANIES.
There are many ways that our production can be compromised, so we employ well-educated and experienced people to inspect the factories regularly. We do not allow or accept bribes, nor do we ask that of our suppliers. We choose to stop working with factories that have unethical practices and look for other sources.

WE SEEK OUT NATURAL MATERIALS.
We look for materials from the natural world that can be made into beautiful, modern home décor objects. We are inspired by textures, colors and raw imperfections that make a material unique. We love to combine materials in a room to take our customers on a journey of the exotic locations we have sourced them from.

WE VALUE SKILLED ARTISANS
We work with skilled artisans who possess the talent and skills to make our designs come to life. Often we do not share a language, a religion or the same food preferences, but we become interwoven in the joy of creation and that becomes our common language. Though appearing to be urban and contemporary, our modern home accessories are often made with very primitive processes in the rural landscape of our world.
