mango design co provided interior design services to for a multi-unit residential project at broadway & quebec street in vancouver.

this display suite shows a sample interior and eclectic interior styling to reflect the artistic bent of the mount pleasant neighbourhood.

while we wanted to keep things fresh & modern, shaker style cabinets were chosen to show some heritage roots.

furnishings from a number of local sources including design house, mint, fullhouse, bombast and attic treasures.

thank you so much!! i had this table custom made at 30" ht so it works with standard height calligaris chairs.
I had thought to use the 36" ht table so it would double as a kitchen work surface, but felt it might overpower the living room seating area.
if you went with the 36" table, you would need counterheight stools.

Laura Gaskill added this to 11 Apartment Hunting Tips for Renters
3. Keep track of multiple listings with a comparison checklist. When you are hitting half a dozen open houses in a single morning, they begin to run together. Keep pertinent info neatly sorted on a single checklist and snap a picture of each place to accompany it, if possible.
9. Choose the right scale. Appropriately scaled furniture can make the difference between a space that feels awkward and one that feels comfortable and homey. In a small space, choose the largest pieces you can while allowing ample room to walk around them. Pieces that are too small will only feel uncomfortable. In a large space, go bigger with the furniture — but keep it human-scale. Some sofas and chairs on the market today are so humongous that an average person is swamped sitting in them!
Choose a cohesive color palette. Charcoal painted kitchen cabinets create a furniture-like effect that complements the neutral pieces in this 6- by 15-foot space. The entire room is painted in Benjamin Moore's Cloud White. The media credenza and dining table, both from Design House, share the same blonde wood that helps to highlight the room's surrounding blue accents, while the Calligaris L'eau chairs don't try to compete with any of it.
