Welcome to Portobello
Portobello Home is a design destination store for modern furniture and goods for the home. Thunder Bay is a contemporary urban city, with wilderness and recreation at its doorstep, so our philosophy is to embrace an organic element in our modern aesthetic. The shop opened a small storefront in 2012, but has since grown and continues to grow, sourcing from classics to Scandinavian to rustic to modern and contemporary. We carefully curate our shop to make your shopping experience a memorable one. Our vision is open minded and advocates a unique and personal vision for spaces.
Laura, the founder and owner, of Portobello, has been dreaming about and designing rooms and homes for as long as she can remember, not just for herself, but for her clients. She spent all her free time in childhood drawing homes and floor plans, pouring over design books and magazines and clipping out favourites for portfolios and vision boards. Still today, design is central to her life. She possesses a skilled eye for design and scale, and unwavering passion for interiors and a strong core belief that every space, big or small, modest or otherwise, can be a dream space. With a blended family of five children, a Shitzu, two Newfoundlands and a cat, a Victorian house, Lake Superior cottage and family sailing charter business, life is full and always moving. Exposure to world design through her love of travel is evident in her designs and shop.

Kelsey has a passion for furniture and design and in particular, appreciates modern clean lines, especially black and white interiors. In her spare time you can find her delving into design posts and blogs, caring for her plant collection, cooking a homemade meal, rearranging her space, or taking long walks around Boulevard Lake. Her partner is a house builder, who she assists with on design, but she has an obsession with tiny houses which causes some debate! Kelsey truly values customer care, making connections and helping customers with their design dilemmas.
