THE LIVING LAB - North Vancouver Furniture Store
Imagine an uplifting, inspiring, collaborative environment where designers and consumers can idealize and materialize their interior design dreams with local, high-quality furnishings and home accessories.
That place exists.
Welcome to The Living Lab.
The Living Lab is part science, part art. It’s a designer’s furniture resource with a twist: designers come to the Living Lab to shop, test, customize, and create furniture that compliments their creative visions.
We pride ourselves on offering both brains and beauty.
On the inside, our anchor furniture is Canadian made (often local), natural, authentic, non-toxic and eco-friendly. On the outside, it is stylistically timeless and beautifully crafted.
All furniture should have both.
Everything we do revolves around living comfortably, stylishly and affordably. We believe that creativity and sensibility are a brilliant mix. And we aim to please. So you can expect us to provide unparalleled service and a quality guarantee.
With the vision of The Living Lab to be a resource to the design industry it was natural that we acquired the help of one of their own. Leading the vision of The Living Lab is interior designer Reisa Pollard of Beyond Beige Interior Design. Using her ten plus years of experience in the industry she advises the team at The Lab on showroom decor and purchasing, infectiously injects knowledge into the minds of the team from all the hands on things she has learned in her business projects. She supports us with the insight into the design world making our concept unique to the industry.
Designer and Client Relations
Most days if you were to drop by The Lab, Jolene’s pearly white smile is on high beam and ready to assist you. Jo leads our designer and client relations department, assisting and over seeing that everyone has all the information and education that they might need to make informed decisions. Jo’s professionalism and confidentiality makes all our relationships unique in their own way.
Someone has to keep us all in line and we wouldn’t rather it be anyone else than Mr. Ian Moore. This ship wouldn’t sail without his strong work ethic and drive to make this the number one industry source for quality eco-friendly and local furniture. Developing supplier relations, shipping and receiving, and making sure everything goes off without a hitch is all in a day’s work for Ian.
Keeping the financials on track is our lady Tina. She has one of the most important jobs in this whole place as she takes the financial management off our back. Tina has over eighteen years in retail accounting, working for communications and furniture suppliers. We wouldn’t be surprised if she could do her whole job with her eyes closed. She’s definitely one of our largest assets!
