L'Atelier Home Has Expanded! Gastown Welcomes Artemisia

Written by  Administrator , on Tuesday, 29 January 2013 11:00

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."

"I always had a vision to have a store with furniture and clothes," says Parvaneh, "I'd been looking for a space in Gastown for some time." Together, with a complimenting aesthetics and a shared love for great style, the duo's project moved along smoothly.  Artemisia is focusing on US and European designs, as well as local finds: pieces that are feminine and soft, with a touch of something different. 

Both owners have a love with pieces with a romantic feel and their ideas blend beautifully. L'Atelier's distinguising French provincial, beach-cottage, shabby chic feel to their decor seems like a perfect fit with Artemisia's racks of unique and playful items, that are both casual and dressy. 

"Artemisia was a very powerful, independent, athletic woman," says Parvaneh, "She caught my eye. Her name means the speaker of truth."

"It's like entering a different feeling," says Linda. The launch for the new shared space will be this Friday evening, February 1st (from 5-9) with little treats and surprises.
