Becky and Jim Buford opened Essenza in 1998 inspired after a trip to Provence and visiting the old world pharmacies of Europe. They designed Essenza using influences from southern France: stone, steel and glass as textured layers throughout the store. Their vision is that Essenza is a space where artisans and clients can come together to share and enjoy the beautiful products that are made around the world. Becky and Jim live in Fremont, Seattle with their sweet Blue Healer, Ellie, and enjoy walks in parks, getaways to the coast and the relationships they have created with their employees, customers and retail industry.
