What is Ideal?

Ideal is a carefully curated shop composed of unique, design-conscious gifts and accessories. The objects we choose are creative, authentic, and refined. They are inspired by the vision of talented artists and designers from around the world.

Our store was formed with our own ideal in mind: that shopping should always be a personal and thoughtful experience.

Enjoy our blog and please come visit our shop in beautiful, downtown Bellingham. If you can't make it in, we take orders over the phone - just call (360-752-5522) or e-mail info@anidealshop.com.

New York, New York

A quick post to say we're back from the gift show, energized by all we saw! Great new designs from all over the globe - we're especially excited about Lexon (France) and Saikai (Japan). Also a fun kids' line from the Netherlands (Kids on Roof). Lots more that we'll detail later, but expect to see new objects arriving in the shop almost weekly from mid-September through early November.

Along with finding new designers, we had the pleasure of connecting with many whom we already represent: Marimekko, Areaware, fatboy, Eloquent Ink, Teroforma, Mon Bijou, Chilewich, Modern Twist, and k Studio to name a few. It was nice to speak face-to-face rather than on the phone or via e-mail.

More postings coming soon, once we get caught up in the shop!
