Who are we?
Jaimie McCausland - Founder
Woodland Mod was the dream of our owner & sole curator, Jaimie McCausland. Jaimie has lived in Seattle for over 30 years and found her home in the Scandinavian historic district of Ballard. With Danish and Dutch ancesestry herself, Jaimie has always had a keen eye for Scandinavian-inspired design.
After raising her daughter and meeting her partner, Steve Mongillo of MW Works architecture, Jaimie decided that it was time to devote the next chapter of her life to opening a brick and mortar store that would embody all that she has a passion for: minimalism, sustainability, hygge, and handcrafted nature-inspired goods.
Woodland Mod opened our doors for the first time in July 2021.
A Tiny Team
With only a few full-time employees and our curator, Woodland Mod is a tiny yet mighty team of individuals who share a love for art, community engagement, and decor. Each team member contributes in their own unique way to our shop's success.

We want to be a beacon of change in the often wasteful culture of retail.
To do this, we:
1. Support sustainability-minded vendors and small artists through our curation
2. Embody waste mindfulness in our store in every phase from receiving products to selling them.
An principle of Scandinavian design is buying less at higher quality. Our products are high standard and long lasting, meaning you will contribute less to the landfill and save money on replacements. Our products are sourced from many vendors focused on removing plastic and harmful chemicals from their operations, using sustainably grown and harvested wood, and ensuring ethical and fair working standards for craftsmen.
We meticulously separate waste and reuse or recycle all packaging materials that are sent to us. We prefer to buy directly from vendors who do not simply mass produce, but rather craft small quantities of items with care.
