Hot new rooms, coming to a neighbourhood near you.
A curated selection of luxury lifestyle pieces and well-priced artwork fills the intimate three-storey loft that is DaDe Art and Design Lab’s latest interpretation of the retail experience. Tour the storefront-turned-faux-home to see the firm’s design work, and shop for your own space along the way.
Q&A with Greg Fraser, co-owner of DaDe LoftWhy did you skip the traditional store design for this loft concept?
“The nature of retail is changing. It’s very much becoming experience-based. We wanted to create a destination and do something interesting. People want to see what they’re going to buy when it’s an investment piece like art or furniture, so we’re making it fun: you get to snoop through someone’s home, walk into someone’s bedroom, or have an intimate dinner party and really experience these items we’ve curated.”
The modern, collaborative workspace was designed by Kirsten Cluett and David Hanson, who decked out the heritage building with Allermuir pieces like Jaks seats and Pause benches.
This gorgeous white-on-white open studio in Mount Pleasant is designed to host designers and architects as well as an ever-changing storefront display and design events open to the public.
Design-centric carpentry company Oliver Apt. created a series of 26 display cases for this Art Gallery of Alberta exhibit, which will showcase a rotating collection of public-submitted artwork.
Grab gourmet groceries like Otto baked goods and Bows and Arrows Coffee Roasters beans at the revamped Main Street corner store, which functions as a coffee shop for the neighbourhood, too.
