Sophie Burke shares a few of the Vancouver-sourced design pieces she's currently coveting.
Interior designer Sophie Burke may have started her career in London, but after working her magic in Vancouver for 13 years, she’s no stranger to catering to West Coast tastes. “Vancouver designers are influenced heavily by our natural environment,” says Burke. “We tend to use less colour and more natural, grey tones in our designs.” But Burke knows that with the right pieces, the earthy vibe can be anything but boring—and, luckily, the city’s got plenty of cool design shops from which to source them.
Vintage Moroccan rug, 7e7“Pieces like this add a really unique element with incredible depth and texture to a modern interior.”
CH25 chair, Inform Interiors“My all-time favourite chair from my all-time favourite furniture brand. It has a perfect sculptural simplicity.”
Gubi Gräshoppa lamp, Bombast“The height of the shade is perfect. It sits beautifully by an armchair with the light hitting the right spot.”
Mud Australia ceramics, Provide“The dishes have a very minimalist, clean look to them but retain a handcrafted quality with a matte finish.”
