espace d. Grand Opening

Earlier this week, Notable had the opportunity to stop by for the official grand opening soiree of much-buzzed about espace d. studio in the heart of Yaletown. Located at 1108 Richards Street, this sleek, contemporary space recently underwent a full gutting to reveal a bare bones sense of simplicity which complements the carefully-selected pieces artfully displayed.

Pronounced ‘es-pass-day’, this chic shop is both the brain and passion child of a charming, true Frenchman by the name of Pierre Derreumaux. A long-standing love for design, coupled with nearly a decade of interior design experience working on exclusive projects, have indeed lent Derreumaux a well-honed eye for style and one we think befits savvy young professionals.

The space itself is reminiscent of a gallery; quite bare (but not uncomfortably so), muted, relaxed and natural, benefiting from a wall of windows. This allows for the artistically-inclined focal pieces to stand out just so.

We took in the scene and did a little ‘shopping’ and networking of our own (while balancing a glass of Viognier ever so carefully!) Amid champagne sabering, canape noshing and plenty of mingling, this was one event to note. Be sure to take a peek at our gallery and judge for yourself!
