Our story

Founded  in  Haarlem  in 2015,  Ekster & Jay  was  established  by Englishman Paul Karabin and Dutchman Vincent Massop.   With combined backgrounds in interior/theater design and hospitality plus their passion, Ekster & Jay led them to an inevitable extension of their creativity.

Born pure out of love of beautiful items and modern art & design, we like to think of Ekster & Jay as a small emporium offering unique and practical items for you and your loved ones to share and enjoy at home or in the garden.

Our collection does have a Nordic influence but we’ve also sourced well designed items from other European countries that sit perfectly together creating a stylish combination for your home.

Quality, originality and practicality are a huge importance for us, with this in mind together with our strong, honest sense of valued customer service we constantly source new and exciting items & brands for you to enjoy as Ekster & Jay is all about sharing the things we find and love.

We hope you enjoy your visit.
