Andrew Corrie of Canvas Home Store headlined at our April Maker Talk. We've been big fans for a long time and love having his store just down the street from our offices, so it was so fun to hear all about his story, his inspiration, and where he sees Canvas Home going next. Click through to watch his presentation and here for tickets to our May Maker Talk!

About: "In 2005, after a successful investment-banking career, Andrew became a partner in Ochre, a high-end European furniture and lighting company. Then in 2008, he launched Canvas, a home furnishing brand known for its emphasis on hand made production of ceramics, glass, linens and furniture. It is a leading supplier to large home goods retailers including Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Anthropologie, and Bloomingdales.
Andrew is also a strong advocate for artisans in developing countries. He sits on the board of Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization which creates economic opportunities for artisan groups around the world where craft traditions and livelihoods are at risk. Andrew donates 10% of Canvas’s profits to support artisans in developing countries."
A special thanks to...
Our wine sponsor, Chapoutier Belleruche. Michel Chapoutier says that one of the most difficult tasks of a vineyardist and winemaker is to make a serious, high-quality wine, yet have it remain a good value. His "Belleruche" wines accomplish just that. M. Chapoutier Belleruche Rose is a great introduction to one of the world's most celebrated wine appellations: the Côtes-du-Rhône region.
