designhouse was founded in 1996 by Anne and Steve Miller. Full of ambition, adventure and seeking to fulfill a passion to bring their unique aesthetic of modern home design to the West Coast, they moved to BC and opened a store. Steve created his own in-house label, Pelican designs, and continues to design unique modern furniture custom built in BC and sourced with local materials. Along the way they forged a partnership with Blu Dot of Minneapolis to become that company’s first “Dotspot” in Canada, as well as opening a Kartell shop-in-shop. Anne and Steve also found time to develop a unique in-store partnership with Marimekko to open the only Marimekko Concept store in Canada. They continue to work with some of the world’s most talented, driven and exciting design driven companies such as Alessi, Ittala, Chilewich, Areaware, Normann and Herschel.

Visit the downtown Vancouver showroom at 851 Homer Street or on-line. Steve and Anne are often found in-store. They are always up for a good design chat.

Our sister store, Marimekko Vancouver is located next to our showroom. They sell the complete range of products from the Finnish company Mariemekko. Please go to for more information.
