While there is a minimalist aesthetic to the products at keepgood co. that I imagine would induce calm in my home, it is almost overwhelming walking into this shop – as there are so many gorgeous things.
This collection of homewares and its presentation is so well curated that every shelf is an inspiration. Like a kid in a candy store, I can peruse for ages, taking pics for my Pinterest interiors inspiration page (and to pass onto my husband as hints for birthday presents).
Keepgood co.’s products make me want to ditch all the clutter in my life and carefully select pieces that bring me pure joy. It is the opposite of walking into a massive chain store and leaving with my head spinning and a million things I didn’t need.
The products selected for this shop appear to be well made using quality textiles and materials; and are interesting, pleasing and practical designs that you won’t find in every other store in the mall.
According to the keepgood co. Facebook page their products are chosen from a variety of designers and creators from around the world who are influenced by Scandinavian design.
This design movement is characterized by simplicity, minimalism, and functionality. It emerged between the 1930s to 1950s in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Scandinavian design philosophy promotes a simple home environment that enhances an unencumbered lifestyle to complement the art of living well. Basically, the types of homes you can walk into and breathe a big sigh of relief.
Our goal is to provoke the same inspiration in the goods that we provide to our community and encourage a healthy, happy lifestyle, and remember to always keep good company, owner Nancy Kapodistrias explains on their Facebook page.
I love this, as I truly believe that the things, as well as the people, we choose to surround ourselves with have a real impact on our lives. Great design inspires me and I feel inspired walking into keepgood co.
I am so happy to find this gem in downtown St Catharines! Whether you are decking out your own abode or purchasing something special for a friend, keepgood co. is a great reason to shop downtown, support local businesses and help the burgeoning community of entrepreneurs and artists to thrive.
