About Us

Euro Living was established by Brigitta Theimer in 2002 with the goal of bringing unique, high quality gifts and decorative items from Germany to Canada and the US.  Brigitta met a number of German manufacturers at various Trade Shows in Toronto when she was working for the Canadian German Chamber of Industry and Commerce.  In her capacity as a trade officer she was responsible for facilitating the entry of German companies into the Canadian Market.


Since then, EuroLiving has become the exclusive distributor of a number of gift and toy lines from Brigitta’s native Germany.


We began with the Black Forest line of FINKBEINER FEINES KUNSTHANDWERK featuring Christmas décor, decorative gift items and toys made uniquely from wood, and added the modern and sleek RAEDER  Collection of gifts, home décor and seasonal items two years later.  Both lines quickly found their place amongst retailers and customers across Canada and the US.


As Canadians love wood items, the hand carved animals from DER LINDWURM were exhibited for the first time at the 2008 Spring CGTA Show.


As customers were asking for quality toys that were both beautiful and safe for their children, several wooden toy lines were then added over the years to Euro Living’s portfolio (HEROS , ESTIA  and later HESS  entered the picture).


At the trade shows in Frankfurt Brigitta always detects interesting lines not yet available in Canada and adds them to the assortment. In 2007 the adorable family of human and animal characters from LIVING PUPPETS was added and than in 2008 the plush little LESCHI  animals filled with organic wheat.


While at the2008 TENDENCE in Frankfurt, the finely detailed and exquisitely laser cut cards designed by HEIDE KLINGMUELLER caught her eye.


2009 will see the launch of an exciting kids’ craft line CALAFANT .   As always the emphasis is on an unusual, high quality product at a reasonable price.
