IDS West this show has evolved quite a bit since the 'decorate vancouver' days. we saw new faces and friendly old faces (old as in we go back, not that they themselves are old!).
good ol' brent comber is one of them. it does surprise me when vancouverites don't know who he is - he's like the reclaimed wood he works with; from vancouver, strong and steady, yet gentle and kind. what can i say? i'm a fan.
listening intently as nathan over at contexture design gave us the full story. great guys with great work!

another old friend mr. peter chen of casika modern was there showing his wares - good to see you peter!

famished and thirsty, we were done...until next year!


  1. I loved Nathan's demo. It was quite amazing how much he packed into a telephone booth!
    I agree with you about the fact that Brent Comber. His work is brilliant, and so few people seem to have heard about him. Hopefully that will change soon!

  2. we missed the phone booth!
    glad you like brent's work too. there's a rumor that he may be launching something at our shop in months to come...we'll keep you posted!
