About Us

Waltman Gillies - Unique House Decor - Barbara Waltman and Gillian Gillies

WALTMAN GILLIES was inspired from Barbara Waltman Design and Gillian Gillies Interiors collective sensibilities.

We agreed that our home accessory marketplace was missing a source for unique and beautiful items to finish off our design projects. As we brainstormed we realized that we had a similar vision and desire to reach and enable global artisans to speak, create and hand make items that will have a special place in your home.

This 1st season we are offering basketry from Ghana, marble and wood and paper items from India and Brazil, table linens collaboratively designed with an illustrator in India and printed here in Toronto, Canada, select cushion bundles using fabrics from the USA and the UK, and pottery designed by us and made in Canada.

Items that speak of our personal travels and journeys over the years. We are both wanderers. When we are in our own city, and when we travel, we both like to hit the streets without a map of the common places to visit. Instead we find ourselves on back streets and going through doorways to small unknown design shops and meeting people who have enabled us to extend our vision.

WALTMAN GILLIES offer you a seasonal selection of curated colour, finish, texture, and style. Come back often for our design conversation and our new added items that reflect the direction of our design world.
