Since 2007, Provide has been an essential source of thoughtfully curated home accessories designed by master artisans from around the world: textile artists from Spain, leatherworkers from Italy, ceramicists from L.A., ironworkers from Japan and more. We also foster and support the growth and success of both emerging and known designers from across Canada, and collaborate on exclusive furniture and accessory lines from many makers in our own city. Each artist brings centuries of tradition to their work, and each and every piece we select brings a personal story to your home.
David Keeler created Provide with his late partner, Robert Quinnell, as a showcase for the iconic and artistic designs they discovered as they travelled the world. Born in Alberta, David’s wanderlust drew him to Montreal, San Francisco and New York, where he attended Parsons School of Design, and finally, to Vancouver. Each city and experience refined his natural aesthetic, which he applied to advertising and design for many years before to turning his talent to Provide.
We are happy to serve the design community and the general public from two stores in the heart of Vancouver’s Armoury District: a creative mecca of design boutiques and cafes, along with the offices of many architects and designers.
Our original light-filled store, Provide, has been thoughtfully designed to highlight the quality and craftsmanship of every piece, with a focus on accessories. We design vignettes to inspire how each carefully selected item shines in concert with the exclusive lines that we carry.
We opened Provide Design Gallery in 2022, just around the corner from our original store. The gallery-like setting spotlights both our exclusive collaborations with local furniture makers Lock and Mortice, Origins, Ben Barber and more, alongside carefully curated lighting, accessories and art from creators around the world. The ever-evolving space creates a conversation between these two worlds: our incredible local talent alongside works from coveted international makers.
For over a decade we have been an essential source of connection and community for local designers through regular events and celebrations held within our welcoming environments.
