Guests mingled, nibbled, and sipped while waiting for the official unveiling and Tracey Ayton took some fantastic photos to capture the evening.

Amanda chose the theme Comfortable Luxury for her master bedroom design and explains in her blog post that the bedroom “exudes this concept: luxury can be comfortable. There are little touches in this room that add to that sense of luxury like the Grasscloth wallpaper, the sateen bedding and the accents of gold. Yet the layered rugs, cozy chairs and fireplace really make this space comfortable and approachable. Mixing textures is always key to creating a beautiful space and is demonstrated here with the layers of bedding, silk drapes and area rugs. Keeping design timeless yet current is really important to me so I designed all of these pieces of furniture with this in mind.”

Amanda’s master bedroom design is on display in our Showroom at 750 S.W. Marine Drive in Vancouver; stop by before our next Designer Showcase launches in September.

“Life is a Riot” with René Picard

The fourth installment of Once a Tree Furniture’s Designer Showcase Series was launched April 4th and featured local Interior Designer, René Picard, who unveiled his living room design and brought in a collection of area rugs from 2nd Century Rug Co. In collaboration with the Museum of Vancouver, these “Graphic, hand-crafted rugs [are] inspired by the history and iconography of Vancouver” and allow homeowners to bring a piece of history into their home.

The rug featured in René’s living room design is the “Post-Riot Board” area rug inspired by the plywood boards put up following the damaged inflicted to Vancouver’s buildings during the Stanley Cup Riot that took place June 2011.
