It is our absolute pleasure to welcome you to Be Home!

At Be Home, we believe that every great design begins with an even better story.

In 2005, our founder, Jonathan Hankar arrived in California from Belgium where he immediately fell in love with the west coast’s entrepreneurial spirit and understated modernity. Motivated by a market filled with plastics and polymers, Jonathan saw an opportunity to bring a simpler, more organic elegance to the table—both literally and figuratively.

We’ve been designing beautiful, ethically sourced, handcrafted home goods from around the world for over 18 years.

Each of our products was crafted by a pair of hands before finding itself in yours. We care deeply about how each of our products are made and release new products each season with this vision in mind.

Our collections are thoughtfully designed in-house by our dedicated team in Northern California. Every Be Home product is handcrafted in small batches, making it truly one-of-a-kind. We prioritize partnerships with family and women-owned artisans, contributing to the livelihoods of independent makers around the globe.

It was during his travels and industry trade shows that Jonathan met Patricia Hankar, his wife and copilot in the Be Home journey. Bonded by their shared love for eclectic tablescapes and travel, the couple’s story began to unfold.

With over 14 years of experience in the industry, Jonathan and Patricia decided to join forces and bring the Be Home mission to life. Together, they strive to invest in elegant, durable, and practical products that enhance people’s lives and homes. Be Home seeks partnerships with artisan groups, craftsmen, and makers globally, emphasizing sustainable craftsmanship whenever possible. Their product line often stems from collaborations with these skilled individuals, innovating to create eco-conscious goods.

Additionally, Be Home proudly holds the status of a Certified Green Business in California, a testament to their steadfast commitment to preserving the beauty of our world for generations to come.

For Jonathan and Patricia, Be Home is a culmination of their influences. Jonathan’s maternal grandmother, who shared her love of flea markets and knowledge of antiques, and their paternal grandfather, a great entrepreneur, have both played a significant role in shaping Be Home. After 15 years of continued growth and success, Jonathan’s dream of bringing Be Home back to Europe was fulfilled in January of 2019.

Jonathan and Patricia’s love for entertaining and discovering new ideas is evident in their ongoing pursuit of knowledge about tableware. They are dedicated to modeling Be Home’s values of making less waste, embracing imperfections, and preserving nature for their three children. At Be Home, we offer something special for every area of the home, ensuring that each product is beautiful, well-made, and created by people who truly care.

Our drive lies in our commitment to cater to our customers and make a positive impact on their everyday lives. We channel this dedication through ethical innovation and stylish design, mirrored in our expansive range of tailored partnership opportunities for wholesale clients. Each of Be Home’s products are meticulously designed in-house by our devoted team in Northern California and crafted with care in small batches, ensuring each piece is truly unique. We take pride in championing independent makers worldwide who resonate with our vision.
