Before Hibernation Season Ends: A Round-Up of the Coziest Shopping Picks
Agent Provocateur’s new fall collection, Season of the Witch, is equal parts coquette, femmebot, and vixen. 1026 Alberni St., 604-258-7943.
Main Street’s Vancouver Special stocks Danish sofas, stylish tabletop accessories, and lots of beautiful design books. But it was the Trivoli iSongBook portable iPod player, with its retro stylings and high-performance speakers, that really caught our eye. 3612 Main St., 604-568-3673.
Move over, IKEA. New Zealand–based Nood (New Objects of Desire) has landed in Vancouver, and offers modern design replicas (like these Foglia side tables, $169 each) at downright-bargain prices. 500–801 Marine Dr., North Van, 604-929-7757; 151 Water St., 604-684-9008.
Known for her luxurious eveningwear and bridal gowns, designer Catherine Regehr has introduced a new Home Collection, inspired by the Canadian Arctic, that debuted at Maison & Objet in Paris. Fox fur with suede fringe throw, $12,000. Catherineregehr.com for retail locations
Hajnalka Mandula adorns her structured, organic pieces with found objects. Her new boutique, with its poured concrete floor and brick walls, is stark and minimal, but the clothes speak volumes. 211 Abbott St., 604-720-3787.
Heather Ross moved her atelier next door to a larger, gallery–like space that’s bathed in natural light—all the better to showcase her pared-down, more “elemental” collection of art, décor, and antiques. We adore these water buffalo horn candlestick holders ($150 for set of three). 1525 W. Sixth Ave., 604-738-4284. Heatherrossinhouse.com
Crosstown’s Nest Interiors houses a well-edited collection of “comfortably modern” furniture and décor. Find durable, eco-friendly bamboo furniture, paintings by local artist Cheryl Fortier, and whimsical decorative items, like these free-form wire birds from Indonesia ($225 for set of four) and this Blanco porcelain pear (starting at $62). 552 Beatty St., 604-737-4704.
