Launched in 1999 by childhood friends Tim Nokes and Mike Gordon, Stonewaters was born from their shared love for interior design and quality craftsmanship. Both hailing from Banff, Alberta, they already led successful businesses—Gordon with Canwest Flooring and Nokes with Tim Nokes Design, a graphic arts and branding company. In 2005, they relocated Stonewaters to an iconic downtown spot after being approached by Phil Marra of Marra’s grocery business. The site received an award-winning architectural redesign by Tim, marking a new chapter in Stonewaters' journey.

“As a locally owned business in its 20th year, Stonewaters continues to delight with its diverse home accessories. Recently, spotted unique finds like leather Bison wallets and new greeting cards, alongside local artists' work and regionally sourced souvenirs, adding more meaning to your collection. Their curation of smaller items truly stands out.”

In the spirit of respect, reciprocity, and truth, we honour and acknowledge that the townsite of Canmore and our store is located on traditional Treaty 7 territory. There’s no denying it, we love where we live, Canmore, where fast lives slow down. With a backdrop of the Canadian Rockies in every direction you turn we are provided with a never-ending source of inspiration. You can see our space and pieces are inspired by this, paying homage with traditional mountain treasures, and juxtaposed with modern design objects.
