About Us

Let your space inspire you

How We Started

We spend a lot of our time on the go, but we tend to bounce back to a hub. Mission control, HQ, or you could call it a desk. Our work and play are often intertwined with this space, but we rarely take time to make it our own. For those who want to where do we turn? This was the question we asked ourselves 3 years ago. We began searching for an answer weren’t contempt with the options we had. We then started the Deskmates journey, and began to understand how we could cater to the needs of our fellow Canadians and friends abroad who shared our frustration.

We wanted to build a store for anyone looking to personalize their desk space. We wanted to help people customize, reorganize, and make spaces more fun to be around. So began the search for our favorite products. After a while of planning and preparation we finally had store ready and a catalogue that we’re constantly working on improving. We broke down our collection into three sections in hopes of making it easier for our customers to find what they needed because sometimes we’re looking for items that fit into a category and not any single item in specific.


We understand the importance of doing our part to protect the great nation and world we live so we only use recyclable packaging for all orders. Being a small shop makes it a lot easier for us to control every aspect of shipping. 

The shipping boxes were use are made of corrugated cardboard, like most other retailers, which is a great first step. We try to go a bit further by using paper based tape, and kraft paper cushioning to ensure all aspects of our packaging are recyclable. 

For some products that are more delicate we do have to use air pillows made from recyclable plastic. We’d like to keep operating in the most sustainable way possible so we’ll keep working to be better, because if you’re doing something you might as well do it right!
