Shops We Love: Pure Design Shoppe Celebrates Artisans With A New Retail Concept

Last fall, Interior Designer Ami McKay carved out floor space within her Vancouver design studio to launch her new retail concept Pure Design Shoppe, which offers a selection of home accessories and artwork that she’s been using in her projects for years. “It’s really important to me to celebrate artisans and help shine a light on them,” says Ami.

The Strathcona-based shop offers textile art by local talent Julie Pongrac, whom Ami discovered in the city’s Eastside Culture Crawl years ago, traditional Japanese-style ceramics by Mimoko, and charming pom-pom throw pillows sourced from Mexico (and featured in many House & Home stories!).
