Trae Designs is a small handmade business that focuses on wood decor and children's toys.  We are located in beautiful Squamish, British Columbia.


Gabrielle (Owner and Operator of Trae Designs) is a wife, mother and creator.  She is passionate about design and has always enjoyed creating her own décor items and wall art for her home.   This passion has evolved into designing, creating and selling for her own label, Trae Designs.

After running a daycare for over ten years Gabrielle decided to follow her passion for creating children’s toys and décor.  Throughout her career as an Early Childhood Educator, Gabby struggled to find toys and children’s items that fit her philosophy and values.  Trae Designs was born from a need for access to natural and safe children’s toys that allowed for fun, open-ended play.  Today, Trae Designs has grown into so much more…what started as a quest for healthier children’s items has evolved into a budding home décor business.

We love to create modern, funky and fun items for around the home using beautiful woods such as maple, walnut, mahogany and cedar. We also enjoy creating a variety of custom pieces as well as wall art with specific logos, names, quotes or custom images.

The health of your family and the preservation of the environment are of great importance to us.  That’s why we only use water-based paints and stains on all of our products and our very own beeswax finish on our children’s toys. 

We pride ourselves on designing and creating each item in our own shop and we hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy making them.

Have a look around, we hope you like what you see.
