The Other Room - The Newest Furniture Store in North Vancouver, B.C.

As a North Vancouver Home Stager, it's always important to keep an ear to the ground and check out any new furniture stores in town.  We were delighted to attend the Grand Opening of the newest furniture store in North Vancouver, "The Other Room".  The Other Room is the cousin of the more traditional Country Furniture store.  The Other Room is kind of like Barbie's younger sister, Skipper.  While Country Furniture has a wonderful tranditional/contemporary feel, The Other Room is younger, more modern, clean lined and current.

The Other Room is located just below Marine Drive, on Lloyd in North Vancouver, where Brougham's used to be.  The store's red carpet was rolled out to welcome visitors to this new, vibrant store.  The furniture ranged from some nice contemporary pieces, to rather iconic furniture, such as the coconut chair and the Eileen Grey round glass side table.  A bonus, was finding local B.C. furniture designers:  Christina Holborne and Fine Line Creations.  Holborne offers urban sustainable furniture fabricated from Kirei board, a material byproduct from Japanese sorghum crops.  Fine Line Creations offers simple, beautiful, clean-lined furniture, with a nod to mid-century modern craftsmanship.

After a long day staging, it was nice to be treated to a wonderful evening, complete with wine bar, beautiful gourmet platters from Louis Gervais Catering, and a D.J.  The candles were lit, and the fire was roaring.  I was inspired by the beautiful furniture, and amazing art.  There were some very unusual pieces that you don't see every day.  I loved the zebra bar stools and the contemporary art.  I highly recommend you check out The Other Room - oh, and say "hi" to Skipper for me.

Sally, "The Other Room" looks like my kind of store.  I can just imagine being there with you.  Two kids in a candy store.  Love those bar stools and some of the artwork...........superb.  "Country Furniture" I'm sure is also excellent, for the right client.

Sally, it looks like you have found a new hangout in Vancouver. The photographs certainly make it look like an ultra-chic furniture store, perfect for all the trendy upscale Vancouverites. I also had no idea that Barbie had a younger sister.

I miss living in a big city simply because of these fabulous launches!!!   Looks like a success for sure.  Even though I have no immediate need for furniture, I find myself drawn to stores like this.

Roger - I have to say that Country Furniture is also one of my favourite stores in Vancouver, especially since they carry lots of French decor and Eiffel towers!  I think it's great that they are covering another niche market with The Other Room - more suitable to urban condos and more modern houses.  It's all good!

Malcolm - Oh yes, and then there's Midge, Barbie's best friend.  I love this style of furniture, and although it doesn't work in my almost 100 year old home, it would work beautifully in some of the more contemporary spaces in town.

Susan - We were very spoiled at this launch - the store really went all out and yes, they've bought my loyalty with a glass of wine and a cheese plate!

Li - Thanks and this furniture store is definitely worth checking out...  and only 15 minutes from the ferry!

Kathy B - This is a very dangerous store to shop in because I love everything!  Oh gosh, I tried to step away but tripped over an amazingly gorgeous coffee table, and may have to return to purchase!!!

Kathy S - Isn't the name great?  Well, I didn't buy anything that night, but I really feel compelled to return and purchase a zebra stool or two for my staging inventory - they are just so unique.

Looks like an awesome place!  I love your Barbie and Skipper reference...I have a Skipper in original box packed away that I really should pull out and sell on Ebay, LOL!

LOVE what you showed us! Yes, those zebra stools are a show stopper. Do they have a website?! I'm a little deprived here.

Hi Sally - I love the look of The Other Room new store - contemporary is certainly the way to go with the young up-and-coming professional buyers. I too like the abstract artwork and my 19 year old niece would really love the zebra stools. Looks like you enjoyed their grand opening!

Cheers!

Hi David!  Well, there must be a 19 year old trapped in this body, clammering to get out, because I have to have those zebra stools!!!  Your niece has very good taste!

Hi there Sally, this does look like a shop where I might have to wear a seat belt. My buyer remorse is more of an 'I should have bought that in black also'   -instead of-    'I shouldn't have bought it.'

Hi Jacque & Larry - Ha ha!  I so agree - you are a shopper after my own heart!  "I'll take one of those, and one of those, and uh, oh yes, one of those!".
