Hibou Home

  • HIBOU HOME

    When we very first started Hibou Design & Co in 2015, we had always known a store for home goods would at some point be a part of the Hibou family. In fact, I specifically remember standing in Korina's kitchen, brainstorming names for both the design business and the shop at the same time. It started as a pillow site and as we grew our business the ideas and dream grew with it. In January of 2018, we decided to make it our passion project of the year. We officially kicked it off in May by hiring our website developer and finally launched Hibou Home last week.

     

     

    The site is a reflection of our design aesthetic, showcasing a carefully curated collection of our favourite pieces that we've used in our design projects. It features products we've already installed, loved, and would select over and over.

     

     

    One of our main products is one that we felt the market was lacking; custom, high-quality pillows. We've been going custom on our pillows since we can remember because the ones we find in most stores simply never made the cut and we're glad to finally share some of our favorite designs with you. The pillow fabrics are carefully chosen, cotton lined and all have concealed zippers. We also happen to be very picky about the fullness of a pillow, so after a lot of trial and error, we finally got the perfect equation for the pillow fills that we sell on the site.

     

    We also added some of our favorite rugs, small accessories, and lighting. The idea is to showcase our favorite pieces that are curated to match our design aesthetic so that those of you who like our look can achieve it in your own homes. We have a Style With feature at the bottom of every page that matches products that we know work together so that you're not stuck guessing if the colours are right together or if the patterns are cohesive. We take all the guesswork out of online shopping!  

     

    We're adding products every week and really trying to grow the options so that Hibou Home can be a one-stop shop for home accessories. We invite you to browse the site and we would love your feedback! Happy shopping!

  • SOME OF OUR FAVE RUGS

    With some of our focus on launching Hibou Home these days, we've had to narrow down some of our favorite pieces that we'll be selling on the site and we couldn't help but see this common theme. Last year was all about the geometrics and this year we're leaning more towards this transitional, almost overdyed style with a more ornate pattern. We love seeing how our styles evolve, although we do still adore a good geo.

    You'll be able to find all of these faves on the site when it launches. Stay tuned!!

     

     

     

     

  • WHAT'S UP HIBOU?

    We've had such an insane and amazing start to our 2018 renovation season that we've been MIA. I'm actually a little shocked that we were even able to somewhat keep up with our Instagram account. May has been such a fulfilling month. We saw 20 new clients, including 5 full home major renos. We gave the official go to begin the design of our online shop. AND we have a new designer starting we us as of June first.

    Yup, we've been pretty busy! Let's break it down;

    Our number 1: The clients!

    We've been so fortunate to be acquiring more incredible projects with clients who are eager to work with us for our design aesthetic. We love, love, the projects we have coming up and we have so many great ideas and inspiration for our new contracts. This summer is going to fly by because we will be loving every single day of work! 

     

    What's this shop that we're talking about? Well, we've been talking about Hibou Home since before Hibou was a thing so we're very excited to actually get it off the ground and to officially turn an idea into a reality. And frankly, after all of the questions from all of you asking us where we've sourced things from, we figured it would take us less time to start a shop than to answer all of your questions!! Our new online store will offer all of our favorite rugs, pillows, lighting, and small accessories. You'll pretty much be able to shop our projects to easily get our look into your homes. We've had so much fun sourcing beautiful fabrics for our custom pillow line and carefully choosing a curated selection of pieces that best represent our brand. Hibou Home is in the very preliminary stages of brand and website development so we should be up and running within the next 8-12 weeks. 

     

    In order for us to maintain the same quality of service with our growth and the addition of an online shop, we decided to hire another designer to join our team. I'm sure I'll be posting another blog about Rachelle after she joins us but for now, all I can say is that she's the perfect fit for Hibou and we can't wait to make her part of the fam!

     

    So that's May in a nutshell. Cheers to June!
