  • Gabriel Ross New Showroom Grand Opening

    March 2013 has been a very exciting month for our Victoria BC showroom! We celebrated our Grand Opening event earlier in the month to the tune of house beats, fine local spirits, tasty treats, fabulous company, and of course divine design. We were so happy to officially warm our new home with our customers, industry colleagues and friends. Here's some photos of this event to remember:

    A bird's eye view of the festivities from up on our second level mezzanine. Our front counter was transformed into a bar featuring Sean Hoyne with Hoyne Craft Beer, Chris Smith with Summerhill Wine and local Victoria Gin served up by Soloman Siegel.

    A fun educational element to the evening - for entry to win a draw prize, guests were challenged to find a series of informational displays featuring iconic mid-century modern design and answer a pop quiz... oh how we love our design history!

    A video loop showing the transformation of the original old warehouse space, metal fabrication shop - Harjim, into our modern lofty showroom played on repeat throughout the night. This screen capture is part way through the renovation.

    Thanks so much to those who joined us and have supported us through the transition to our new beautiful space. If you haven't had a chance to experience our new showroom yet, please stop by and visit us at the corner of Bay Street and Rockbay Avenue in Victoria.

    To add to the excitement this month, our very own Ross Taylor is featured in the March/April issue of Victoria's lifestyle magazine: Y.A.M. Stay tuned for details on our next blog post or check out the article online here.
