About
Not Just for the Garden


ELEANOR LAPORTE, OWNER

Contemporary Home Decor for the Kitchener-Waterloo Region

thank you tag | contemporary decorNJFTG launched in 1998. After several locations, it has evolved into a contemporary home decor store selected from over 200 vendors, creating what many consider an eclectic and diverse selection of decor in Waterloo for both interior and exterior spaces.

Working with Canadian artisans and manufacturers has always been a priority when sourcing product for the store.

The store also provides options for Repurposed, Modern, Industrial, & Contemporary design. We truly are not just for the garden, shop for a piece of jewelry, a bandanna for your favorite four legged friend, or order a coffee table for your living room. Style selections are available in a range of prices. Staff are available for complimentary home styling consultations, custom faux floral design, and residential and commercial outdoor planters.

We strive to exceed our clients’ expectations. “It takes less time to do things right, than to explain why you did it wrong.”

About Me

My inspiration comes from many avenues: fashion, nature, art, family, friends, and the beauty that                            surrounds us on a daily basis. When you combine FUN and WORK, you get FERK.

That has been my experience.

I have been so blessed to be creatively stimulated in my career. Whether I am stylizing the store or a space for a client, creating that WOW!!! factor is so rewarding. It is absolutely AMAZING!!!! what AWESOME!!!! product there is out there now.

The choices can be overwhelming, but after being part of the industry for over 30 years, the decisions come faster and easier.
