H&H’s Kimberley Brown talks with Byron and Dexter Peart, co-founders of Goodee, on sustainability, celebrating artisans and decorating with the planet in mind.
In 2017, acclaimed designers and curators Byron and Dexter Peart set out on a new mission. After founding the acclaimed brand WANT les Essentiels in 2007, the duo set out on a new venture with the same aim of launching and developing meaningful brands. This time, however, the pair decided to work exclusively with products and items that make a strong social or environmental impact. Goodee is leading the charge in curating a marketplace that brings together the values of good design and good purpose. With a fast-growing team split between Montreal and New York, Byron and Dexter act as the lead curators for the platform, which is set to become a global e-commerce platform and storytelling destination.
