About Us

Our Story

Established in 2005 by husband-and-wife proprietors Danielle Lagah and Oakley Thompson, The House of Leaves was created with the intention of providing visitors with a truly unique and delightful shopping experience. Building on Danielle’s career as a wholesale home décor buyer and Oakley’s love of excellent tea, the two designed a concept store that would bring together rare and lovely goods at affordable prices from some of their favorite locales around the world – including France, New York, Germany, Hong Kong, California, India and Japan.

Situated in a custom-constructed timber-frame building tucked amongst the trees of the Bamboozle property, the shop is an unexpected find in rural Coombs. Charming décor pieces, beautiful jewelry and scarves, luxurious PJ’s, whimsical stationary, fine French-milled soaps, and bespoke loose-leaf teas are sourced and gathered by Danielle during several buying trips each season to create an inspiring visual feast. Visitors are treated to a sample cup of the featured tea-du-jour while they browse the themed displays, peruse the extensive tea menu, and explore the “Cabinet-of-Curiosities” – an antique cabinet that hides surprises inside each little drawer.

Our Tea

More than 50 varieties of bespoke loose-leaf teas are exclusively available at The House of Leaves. Quality blacks, greens, and herbals are sourced from some of the world’s finest and most recognized estates. That’s the serious part. But it’s the signature blends that make our tea special – deliciously aromatic and robust flavors guaranteed to delight! Customers adore our famously smooth Toffee Crème Caramel Rooibos, the rich and dusky Lady Godiva White Chocolate Truffle, and our Bamboozle Blend – a combination of Japanese Sencha green with candied pecans. There’s so many to try… and fall in love with.

Our Fondest Wish

Is that each visitor to The House of Leaves finds something in-store to inspire, amuse, and make their hearts go pitter-pat! That they adore their purchases. And that they leave feeling just a little bit enchanted. Danielle and Oakley endeavor to make each season at the shop more marvelous than the last… come & see!
