We’re glad you’re here.

Help yourself to an organically shaped object or a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Everything we select for the store is distinctively designed, always affordable, and often has a touch of humor. We hope our passion becomes your inspiration.

Have fun browsing and let us know if we can help.

 

Meet the Team

 Urban Indigo’s owner,  Cynthia Bragdon , loves good design. She began her career in graphics and soon discovered a passion for ceramics. She opened a ceramics studio across the bay from San Francisco, where she sold her own work and assorted artful objects. The storefront quickly expanded, was named Urban Indigo in 2004, and eventually moved to its current location in the historic Grand Lake neighborhood of Oakland.
