Getting ready for a lunch & learn presentation at our studio in Vancouver! We feature the finest in wood floors from around the world!
After visiting the Listone manufacturing facilities near Perugia, Italy, we headed north to Milan for design week 2018! Salone Mobile is one of the world's premier design trade shows, showcasing the best in Italian design and furnishings. The entire city becomes a Mecca for design with an endless list of exhibitions and events to go-to. Certainly, the highlights this year were the launch of new Listone floors - Perigal by Paola Lenti and Fabrique by Marc Sadler!
Here are some photos from our recent trip to Italy! We visited our friends at Listone Giordano and had an opportunity to tour their manufacturing facilities and see first hand the process of making these beautiful floors.
To achieve the precision and quality Listone is known for, the facility is a fine balance between state-of-the-art technology and expert flooring craftspeople who diligently inspect every board to ensure the highest of standards are maintained.
Thank you to our hosts! We are grateful for your hospitality and look forward to visiting again soon!
On May 13th we had the pleasure of hosting a special open house event for Vancouver Design Week 2018! In line with this year's theme of IMPACT, we placed a spotlight on the process of luxury #wood manufacturing and the impact of these products on #design and the #environment. We had an amazing time and are looking forward to VDW 2019!
Just in time for decking season we’ve expanded our selection of luxury outdoor materials and products. New from Listone Giordano, a collection of highly weather resistant wood materials made with an innovative structural system for long lasting applications #Teak #ThermoTreated #Ash #Ipe #Outdoor #Technology #Italia
Here are some new sample shipments we received this week. We love receiving packages in the mail especially when they're this beautiful. These products will be featured on upcoming projects we're working on so stay tuned!
When it comes to wood applications, there's nothing as beautiful as a well crafted set of stairs! Here are some prototype examples of floating treads. These would look so nice against glass siding or just on their own! This particular example was made using a pre-finished floor and highlights an advanced mitre process with polyurethane seaming that would be suitable for residential applications. For high traffic spaces an integrated solid nosing component on the edges would be a good idea. Featured here is Deep Down Taupe and Gris Charmant by Woodlife!
Since moving to the Armoury District this past fall we have enjoyed visiting all the amazing local furniture and decor shops found in our neighbourhood. This area is truly a design mecca offering everything from luxury cars to the latest in homewares and furnishings. It's always fun to consider what floors would pair well with what we're seeing so we decided to create a local inspiration feature here on our Log for your viewing pleasure. Below are some pieces we think would look absolutely fabulous with Eternal Grey by Woodlife:
After five fabulous years in Mount Pleasant we moved our showroom to our new home in the Armoury District of Vancouver! We love our new neighbourhood and are so excited to be a part of this growing architecture and design community. It's such a treat taking Alfie for a walk every day around the seawall and Granville Island!
The inspiration for our new showroom came from the boutique parquet shops of Europe - simple, sophisticated, and functional! Bursting with product options and samples ready to go!
Here are some behind the scene snapshots from our showroom renos! If you're in the neighbourhood come in and say hi!
