We co-found and co-produce the best in new, Canadian home furnishing design.
COFO partners with emerging Canadian designers to see their ideas realized, produced and authentically brought to market. Our mission is to give back to the design community by featuring Canadian design at home and around the world.
In an industry that’s often concerned with mass-produced, expendable products, we take the opposite approach. The results are exceptional pieces, made to last.
Working together is at the core of everything we do. Our collaborations continue with Visual Elements, a state-of-the-art retail manufacturer with clients including Nordstrom, Coach, J.Crew, Hermes and Louis Vuitton. Together, we make good ideas great.
We craft our pieces in Canada with high-quality, sustainable materials. We use leading-edge fabrication technology, from advanced laser cutting to superior polishing and finishing.
All of our products are made in Canada using only the highest quality materials. Each of the designers we select through our design challenge lives and works on Canadian soil, and represents the very best new talent.
