I use Platner chairs often, but it is one of my all-time favourite things.What’s an item that’s still on your wish list?A full-time valet.What’s one design trick you often come back to?I think there is a strong trend toward collecting good mid-century art—the X generation has a great eye.What three things are always in your fridge?A big selection of mustards, homemade jams and bagels.What’s on your nightstand?My current read: the Jo Nesbø novel The Snowman.What are three of your favourite design stores in town?Domicile, Kit and Robert Sweep.What do you like most about living and working in the West?I have always lived here. It is my home, and I love the fact that Western Canadians are open-minded and have a contemporary sense of design. It’s been great to help Calgary grow and evolve in the design industry.Take a peak inside Douglas Cridland’s personally curated Calgary home.
