Who is Madame Wood?

Welcome to the design world of Madame Wood! Here you will find beautiful, unique and modern wood products for your home. Every product has a piece of me in it and was either designed with love by me or hand-selected by me. 

I’m Karla. I'm a dreamer and a doer. A mother. A daughter. A sister. A wife. A lover of beauty, possibility, and endless adventure. I am educated, yet comfortably removed from the stifling restrictions of academia or hierarchy. I am a craftswoman and an artist. I am a passionate defender of the environment, and a fervent opponent to the modern throw-away mentality. I am a businesswoman and an unabashed entrepreneur.

Surrounded by nature, I happily call Michelstadt in the Odenwald Forest in Germany my home, but as a child growing up with Scandinavian roots surrounded by the iconic Rocky Mountains in Canada, I also find myself drawn to the majestic beauty of the cool, daunting, glacial peaks.

Why wood? Versatile. Changeable. Sustainable. Modern. Durable. Unique. Simply always appropriate. These are just some of the attributes that make wood a perfect raw material for Madame Wood's design world. Each design piece is unique, with a unique grain, color and design. A raw material that has been used for so long, yet is still so modern and radiates so much love and warmth.

I want to make your lives more vibrant, rich, filled with adventure, and surrounded by love. Today, I seek to do my part to make the world a more beautiful place – by bringing hygge home. 💗
