Get your shop on.
The move from Crosstown to Vancouver’s buzzy Armoury District was a smart one. The corner location offers big, beautiful windows to let in plenty of natural light and allow passersby to take a peek at the wares inside: hand-woven pillows and throws from Teixidors, an impressive selection of Martha Sturdy designs and modern light installations from Matthew McCormick. See more pics from inside this beautiful space here.
One-Question Interview with David Keeler, Co-Owner of Provide
Why is texture so appealing to you?
We really gravitate toward materials that are honest: wood, metal, glass, hand-woven textiles, stone, clay. We love texture, as well as items with neutral tones and just that little bit of colour. The idea of taking something handcrafted and putting it into a modern space…it kind of humanizes the environment. It’s an element of surprise and delight.
MORE APRIL OPENINGS
The web boutique got its start in Rotterdam, and now founder Manon Garritsen has set up her home base on the West Coast—though the pieces she’s stocking (simple, beautiful handbags, minimalist pottery, geometric cushions) still have a serious Dutch design bent.
A newly expanded showroom takes over the heritage space next door on the edge of Chinatown, with 2,700 square feet of modernist furniture and accessories. Source even more smartly designed pieces from Bensen, Bocci, Jonathan Adler, Anglepoise and more.
Canadian surf and lifestyle store Sitka—started back in 2002 with just hoodies and boards—has set up a new camp on Government Street with more goodies than ever before: elegant saddle-stitched notebooks, Ursa Major skin care and rugged-chic Topo Klettersack day packs.
An addition to the cozy design store’s square footage makes room for a new fabric showroom, packed with plenty of swanky textiles for purchase by the foot and instant access to upholstery options for Plum’s new custom furniture line, coming this summer.
