The intimate store features an ever-changing collection of well-designed products in a variety of categories, many produced locally and/or with a “green” focus.  duoHOME principals Tim Kempf and Scott Suskowicz are also talented interior designers – the duo are known for their casual, comfortable contemporary interiors, often with a Mid-Century flavor.  When you find yourself in Northeast Ohio, check out their shop!
