Catherine Regehr Home Collection available exclusively at Provide

Provide brings you Vancouver based designer Catherine Regehr's (internationally renown couture designer) luxurious home collection.  Catherine has a love for both the elegant and the outdoors - a person of contrasts, she is equally comfortable creating couture as she is canoeing down a river in Canada's North where she lives part of the year.

Regehr's designs combine unique textures and fabrications with a simple modern sensibility, which she describes as "the culture of Luxury".  This signature style can be seen in both here home and fashion collections.

Regehr works together with First Nations and other artisans to help create some of the northern pieces - which are the main theme for her collection and reflect the many textures of the northern lands and its people.  Beautiful silks in rich tones are hand looped to create volume and texture in both pillows and duvets.  Intricate quilting and embroidery embellish silk velvet quilts, cotton bedding, and suede and linen cushions.  The Catherine Regehr home collection - an exclusive to Provide, injects luxury to both urban and country environments.
