STORY

I am always looking for the right balance of function and beauty. Designer and craftsman, William Morris, summed it up best: “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”

I believe our homes should be a magical place that showcase our special belongings. Where handcrafted treasures brimming with sentimental stories sit hand-in-hand with other everyday fixtures...enjoying life harmoniously.

GOOD COMPANY WARES was born on this foundation and is inspired by the colorful experiences of my travels.

I was born and raised in Japan and upon moving to the United States, my curiosity for the great outdoors has taken me to many awe-inspiring destinations. Wherever I explored, I was consistently in the loving company of two things: vibrant colors that excited the soul and the warm embrace of both locals and fellow travelers. Venturing out to new lands and plunging head first into their culture, language and food have always pulled my heart strings.

GOOD COMPANY WARES showcase the happy balance of the expressive colors of the Southwest + South America and the minimalist Japanese aesthetic. My hope is to elate and inspire you and bring back fond memories from when you experienced great adventures in new lands.

All GOOD COMPANY products are designed and handcrafted with care in our Bay Area studio.
