The Modelo Story

If you've ever explored Guelph, chances are you've seen some of our work. Next time you're at La Reina, Gym Name, or Royal Electric, take a look around and think about how the space makes you feel. Everything is placed with intention to create an experience. Since 2009, we have been bringing this same approach to people's homes. Our favorite part is that our choice of style is the one you have in mind.

Karen Miller has been the operator behind Modelo since the beginning. She attended a four-year Material Art & Design program at the Ontario College of Art & Design and also graduated from the Interior Design Program at the International Academy of Design. She lives in Guelph with her husband, three kids and Doberman Dog Name. Karen enjoys her spare time outdoors with Dog Name and practises yoga frequently to keep sharp. She has brought design to the community by taking on co-op students and teaching classes at Conestoga College. Karen is evolving with the times and sees a future where she is travelling the continent in her Airstream trailer, designing remotely while finding inspiration on the road.
