About Modero

Our Story

Modero was born from a collective passion for art and interior design. As artists, we are possessed by our ideas and a desire to create. We have a wide range of interests, such as resin casting, acrylic pouring, abstract painting, vinyl printing, and more! There is no shortage of creative energy flowing through us. We decided to take our creativity one step further by offering our custom pieces to a wider audience who inspire us to come up with new and innovative ways to create every day. Our collection also includes a large variety of unique, handmade items from a worldwide selection of creators.

With an interior design background, we love to create new and intriguing spaces with hand-crafted mid-century modern, farmhouse, industrial, and rustic home decor and furnitureOur company name came from our passion for modern abstract art and home decor. After spit-balling several ideas, we finally found something we can get behind. 

​Every project is as unique as our customers. Our goal at Modero is to bring you handmade or professionally made pieces that are one of a kind or to your specifications and not mass produced in a factory or sold by big e-commerce and department stores.

Our Mission

At Modero, we strive to create and source the best handmade home decor that is as unique as our customers. Our mission is to provide our customers with a large selection of both custom and handcrafted pieces from small businesses and artists in Canada and around the world. 

The Big Dream

Our dream is to grow into a strong online retailer for small businesses and artists to sell their unique, homemade, and hand-crafted pieces to a large audience around the world. Today's largest retailers often sell items that are made in factories and are relatively inexpensive to make. We believe there is a unique market for handmade items big and small that is just waiting to explode. We want to make sourcing and supporting these individuals as easy as the click of a button. Please note that not all products on our website are entirely handmade, but all products sold on our platform do contain handmade elements and professional craftmanship. Some of our products have components that may be mass produced, but the final product requires expert dexterity, attention to detail, and careful assembly. As our partnerships grow, so too will our inventory of handmade decor.
