Our Story

How We Started

The iDESIGN inc. Storefront is a small brick and mortar retail store opened in 2021 by Kristin Hayward of iDESIGN inc. a design & renovation firm based out of Manitoba, Canada.

Kristin graduated with a Commerce Honours Degree with a major in Marketing and worked as a Policy Analyst with the Federal Government for a number of years before discovering her passion for interior design.  

It wasn’t until Kristin and her husband Tim decided to build their first home that Kristin really discovered her true professional passion in life.  Rather than hiring a conventional home builder Kristin decided to design & general contract the home-build from the ground up. 

Fast forward 5 years, after having her second child Kristin returned to school, received a Diploma in Interior Design and opened iDESIGN INC.

iDESIGN, expanded quickly & in 2021 Kristin decided to open her first Brick and Mortar retail location to better serve her clients but also to fill a gap that she recognized in the local market for the type of furnishings & decor that she was searching for on a daily basis.  

The iDESIGN INC. Storefront is a collection of high-end furnishings & home decor that are carefully curated, unique & have luxurious, laid back California influences.

The “Storefront” is located on Corydon Avenue in Winnipeg Manitoba, once know as Winnipeg’s “Little Italy”.  Corydon Avenue is a destination district with trendy shopping & dining.
