Sit. Interiors Grand Opening - Place For the Cool Kid w/ a Creative Mind

There was a major buzz around YYC this month, and it made fans of innovative designs happy. Sit. Interiors, a highly stylish furniture retail shop is finally opened! Sit. was concepted by two very passionate and established interior design experts Maddy Kelly and Dominic Blanchet of Domiciles Interiors. The shop is not all about furnitures, but also about providing a creative space for the creative minds to share artistic ideas and inspirations.
To make this shop more welcoming for local and/or international artists, and accessible to wider range of audience, Sit. Interiors decided to utilize its space for multiple pop-up events. There will be an on-going designer collaborative presentations for six months until October. I think it is a GREAT idea and a thoughtful way to make this space as dynamic as possible.
The grand opening party was a great opportunity to meet local artists of various disciplines. It was interesting to speak with some of the inviduals that night to try to understand their choice of medium to execute their ideas into art. The special guest for the evening was Matthew Hilton, an Elle Decoration Design for Best Furniture award winning UK based furniture designer. Matthew Hilton had previously designed for fashion designers Paul Smith and Koji Tatsuno.

Super cute and artsy children's furniture company Babybot is also currently showcasing their merchadize at Sit. Their children furnitures/toys/learning tools are one of a kind pieces for parents that appreciate high-design products as much as practicality. Baybot is an all online shop, where buyers can easily browse their products categorized by colour themes, designers, and functionality.
A good party usually consists of music (thanks to Kinfolk). There was also a great presence emerging local artists at the scene. Often attending fashion events, it was something unique to be able to meet a mixed crowd of: painters, sculptors, musicians, filmmakers, fashion/ interior designers, photographers etc… So "What Inspires YOU?" - Sit. asked. As of now I am inspired to tell my friends to check out this fabulous space for inspirations.
There will be a cool event happening tomororw (May 26th) at Sit. It's called HOT ONEINCH ACTION. A social event where people buy, collect, and trade 1" pins each uniquely designed by independent artists! Don't miss out :)
