How many things have you purchased this year that will become valued possessions?
How many things will you soon discard?
CANOE was established in 2005. Drawing on our 20 years of experience in the retail industry and our passion for design, the CANOE concept is to offer simple, beautiful, and functional objects that can be used and enjoyed everyday. To us, modern is an approach, not a style. We seek out products with a lasting aesthetic that transcends short-lived trends.
Our name reflects our approach, referencing a timeless and pleasing product form that performs its function splendidly. Our name also suggests discovery, and we hope our customers have this sense when they shop online or visit us at our shop in downtown Portland, Oregon.
Reflecting our location in the Northwest, our shop interior employs natural materials to create a spare yet welcoming space. We strive to provide great service and the friendliness of a neighborhood corner store, including gift registry services.
