When you walk into Gastown's new The Board of Trade Co, it takes only a moment to feel inspired and totally immersed in their carefully curated goods. Part museum of amazing hand crafted artifacts (in this museum, you get to take them home with you) and part fashion hub for both men and women, it's a shop so beautiful and charming, it's no wonder there is not only one brain behind the business, but three.

"It's really about creating a fun, cool space for people to come and work, rather than a job where you go punch in," says Ian Kirby, founder and owner of the company. Day to day, the team relishes in creative freedom, and each member contributes to the company's well-appreciated, painterly style.

Sometimes things happen quickly, especially when it just feels right. That's the case with L'Atelier Home's new expansion next door, a collaborative effort between the home decor destination and a new concept womens clothing store, Artemisia. As soon as Artemisia owner Parvaneh and L'Atelier's Linda met and started discussing ideas, it just seemed like a good fit, and things fell together quickly. "We met a couple months ago," explains Linda, "It seemed like a great idea. It was always in the back of my head -- to have clothing, furniture, and home decor."
