CB2 – Conveniently located right on Robson in the heart of downtown Vancouver, you’ll find practically everything you need to fix things up around the house in one expansive showroom. Grab functional, brightly-hued seating options for both indoors and outdoors, mirrors, artwork, accessories, sofas and everything in between. They’ll ship direct to you; for added convenience, they offer 15% savings if you sign up for their newsletter. Definitely a YP tip worth noting.
Moe’s – This is a great place to head to if you’ve recently made some decor changes in your home or office. Find inspiration for every room or surface. We love this punch of colour (that is oh-so affordable), as do we adore the funky deck designs offered by these pieces and sectionals – perfect for impromptu summertime entertaining.
