It is nice to see Cambie Street recovering nicely from two tough years of construction. There are little shops and restaurants popping up all over the place: most notably, Walrus. Minimalist and elegant, Walrus is a perfect little shop for a design lover, and carries an amazing selection of works by up-and-coming designers. Owners Caroline Boquist and Daniel Kozlowski have both earned their design cred by working at Inform. They have a great eye for choosing items that will fill a gap in the Vancouver market – unique and affordable household chic! I could gush about all the items in the store but here are some fashionable standouts:

NOOR tote handbag
material: used inner tubes and felt
Made by hip Dutch KREJCI, these gorgeous bags are handmade, strong and have a high-quality finish.

Digital ‘Watch’ Cuff by Listen Lady (Lorena Barrezueta)

Porcelain Pendants by Listen Lady (Lorena Barrezueta)


Paper Plane pendant by Broken English

Silver Cup pendant by Broken English

Keep your eyes open for Walrus’ special events and art collaborations with local artists.
