We search high and low for things that make us laugh, smile, and express our true spirit, and then create unique pieces from them.
We love bohemian, hippie chic, vibrant colors, rich fabrics, and combining the unexpected. We are always working to incorporate recycled components into our work.
Henri and I grew up in military families, and spent our childhoods moving throughout Canada and Europe. We landed in Ottawa in our early teens and have lived here since.
I grew up in a home with a mom and dad that taught my sisters and I how to create in our wood workshop, sewing room and garden. We recycled, repurposed, and created all kinds of unique stuff.
Henri spent childhood summers at the family cottage learning to love nature and the peace of the woods. Wood carving became a passion, and he continues to carve and work with rustic wood pieces.
The corporate world kept us busy for a number of years, but our creative spirits were brewing. The creating and building of Funk Your Junk has now become our focus and passion.
Henri can be found in a corner of the workshop carving, painting or intensely building our website, while I continue to have fun creating more cool stuff.
Our mission is simple...."To Create Smiles"
