John Booth received his education from Queens University and his architecture degree from the University of Toronto. He is currently working with form and structure in both painting and furniture. Arounna Khounnoraj received her education from the Ontario College of Art, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and a MFA from the University of Waterloo. She is currently exploring pattern and image in her textiles and sculptures.

In the fall of 2008 they opened their brick and mortar shop located on dundas street west in toronto.
