Strathcona

This 3-level 1,500 sqft. townhouse that our company had designed was for the CEO of a hemp-based garment manufacturing firm who create a warm and inviting space to relax and entertain his business employees and personal guests. The space had to accommodate a growing family and also had to be buyer-friendly enough so that the owners could sell it at a moment’s notice. By the time they called our design firm, they had already bought a dining set, sideboard and coffee table. Pretty soon, they began to feel less and less confident about the wisdom of their decisions and finally decided to get some professional assistance to eliminate the guesswork out of the entire process, and ultimately help them create a beautiful end result.  As they were a bit unsure what style of design to go with, I recommended using their Noguchi coffee table as a starting point and proceeded to search for similarly styled pieces from the 50s and 60s that would complement this classic mid-century piece of furniture. We imported a couch and a matching pair of side chairs from south of the border and some accessories, artwork and light fixtures locally. I also brought in two Venetian watercolors I had purchased in Venice from a recent European trip in their dining room. Last I heard was that this couple managed to sell this home in just a day when they decided to move to Victoria.
