Fresh spots to get local designs and Parisian treats alike.
The iconic Parisian bakery makes its Canadian debut with plenty of Euro charm—think marble tabletops, pretty pastels, brass accents and (most importantly) plenty of picture-perfect macarons.
One-Question InterviewOlesya Krakhmalyova, Ladurée Canadian partner
Why did you choose the West Coast for Ladurée’s first Canadian location?
“I just wanted to bring a piece of Paris to Vancouver. I think ambiance is very important—it’s not just about the 17 types of macarons, it’s about an experience. Ladurée has its own designers who carefully craft every store around the world, but they’re all special in their own way. Despite Vancouver’s rainy weather, this is a place that’s always warm and cozy.”
What started as an online source for curated antiques and home decor (run by a design-savvy collective including names like Amanda Hamilton, Kate Duncan and Propellor) has moved into the physical realm with a flagship gallery downtown.
The dark, industrial-cool masculine space directly reflects the store’s MO: stylish furniture and goods for the discerning male design lover. Shop for leather armchairs, walnut cabinets and bar tools in a loft-style environment.
Everything in this bright and airy boutique—located in the historic de Waal building—is made by Canadian artists, from the quirky painted mugs to the hand-hewn wood cutting boards. Don’t feel like shopping? Grab a hot drink at the in-store tea bar.
The shop itself is two years old, but the selection of reclaimed wood pieces and restored wall decor now also includes a brand-new collection of furniture made with boards salvaged from the original Pabst Brewing Company.
