Our Story

The Be Home story begins in 2005 when Jonathan Hankar left Belgium and came to the US to work for a home decor company.

A year later, struggling to find products with character which were not machine made, Jonathan co-founded Be Home with the goal of offering Home & Lifestyle handmade and sustainable products.

After nearly 15 years of continued growth and success in North America (from California), Be Home was launched in Europe in January 2019, with Gregory Hankar at its helm. Introducing Be Home in Europe has been our long-time goal and we are delighted with this collaboration between brothers.

Be Home is the culmination of two main influences. Our maternal grandmother shared with us her love of flea markets & knowledge of antiques. Our paternal grandfather – a great entrepreneur- who always encouraged us to “dare to start something new”. They both will remain a wonderful source of inspiration.

Be Home is extremely proud to present its collections in Europe. Our European office and warehouse are located near Brussels where we both grew up. The circle is completed!
