Who are we?
Hi, we’re Melissa and Sacha Leclair! LD Shoppe is the retail store of Leclair Decor, our husband and wife owned residential design firm based out of Ottawa, Canada, and we’re so happy to have you visiting our shoppe. We initially started our business as a decorating and design service, but after a few years we began craving another way to share our favourite products beyond our design clients. And so, LD Shoppe was born!
Why shop with us?
We want you to think of us as your local mom and pop shop, of the internet! We're a small, family owned business and we strive to provide personalized customer service online and in the shoppe. We're passionate about well designed, stylish and practical, long lasting furniture, rugs, art, lighting, and decor. We standby the products we showcase in our shoppe, we recommend them to our clients, and we use them in our own home. Everything we carry has been thoughtfully curated by our team, so we are confident that you’ll love our products just as much as we do!
2016 - LD Shoppe began as purely an e-commerce business and was a great way to showcase our favourite products to our clients and customers. In fact, it was so well-received (and grew so rapidly!) that it quickly became evident that a brick and mortar store was not only a viable option, but an option that was sure to be a success.
2017 - In September 2017, we opened our first brick and mortar showroom to compliment LD Shoppe’s online offerings. Even off the beaten path, the shoppe was such a big success that we managed to outgrow the space in a single year!
2018 - By the end of the year, LD Shoppe found a new (and much larger) home in a 4200 sq. ft. showroom where we were able to house and showcase more products. In this new location, we found that the shoppe drew a crowd and became a destination for locals as well as customers from out of town.
2019 - You can probably guess what’s next…we just couldn’t stop growing! And more growth meant we needed more space. And so, we expanded into another unit, meaning we had almost 10 000 sq. ft. and were able to bring our design studio under the same roof as the shoppe.
2020 - As we all experienced, 2020 was a year of many ups and downs. But, we consider ourselves so lucky to have experienced continued growth throughout the year as many people shifted their focus to improving and styling their homes. This allowed us to bring on many new team members and significantly increase our online offerings!
2021 - Annnd, we’re expanding again! This time, the expansion will be to create more showroom space, more offices, a photo and video studio, as well as meeting rooms to be used by staff and clients once it’s safe to do so. We will also have a larger warehouse, which means that we will have space to carry an even larger selection of beautiful products for you!
