Our Story
Let us introduce ourselves.
Hi, we're KANSO
We believe good design allows for a more enjoyable life.
The things we buy should be functional, timeless, and unique. They should be designed with the goal of improving everyday life. We make sure that whatever you take home with you will not find itself replaced in the coming years or hopefully ever.
 
We set out to create an inspiring space as thoughtfully designed as objects it features. A beautiful space that not only showcased the products but allows our customers to experience our aesthetic in real life.

FOUNDER
Founded by Jason Duke, KANSO was created to scratch my family's itch for wanting well-designed objects in our home. We have always been drawn to living with less. Many of the designers and brands we feature are hard to find in the midwest. So we thought why not introduce Kansas City to this way of life and design aesthetic. 

Kanso is a Japanese zen principle meaning "Simplicity or elimination of clutter. Things are expressed in a plain, simple, natural manner." It sums our way of life in one word.
