When Crane & Canopy co-founder Karin purchased her first house, she wanted to create a contemporary and elegant home filled with high-quality designer décor and furniture. When she couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for without breaking the bank, she decided to get to work. The result: high quality designer home goods at an innovative price point.
With passion for both design and business, Karin teamed up with Christopher, her Harvard Business School classmate (and fiancé), to bring a unique approach to the home goods industry. Working hand-in-hand with the same manufacturers who supply bedding to high-end retail and designer brands, the dynamic duo brings unparalleled value to the market with high-quality fabrics, innovative bedding and contemporary designs.
You may have spotted a very adorable pug in our photographs and wondered who he is and how he ended up there.
Meet Gus, our company mascot and pug. Gus is four years old, has an abnormally long tail, big brown eyes and an unusual sweet tooth. Known in our headquarters for chewing and a penchant to check out anything new, we have lost a few samples thanks to his mischief. While our warehouse is now a "no-Gus" zone, you will see him occasionally in our photographs. Once Gus gets comfortable, it is impossible to get him to move!
If you love Gus as much as we do and want to see what he has been up to, check out “behind the scenes” here.
