DIMORESTUDIO has designed french luxury brand Cire Trudon's newest boutique on Rue saint Croix de la Bretonnerie in Paris.

Based in Milan, DIMORESTUDIO founders Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran have created stylish interiors for such restaurants as Ceresio/7 in Milan, Thierry Costes Caffe' Burlot in Paris and Ian Schrager's Pump Room Hotel in Chicago to retail outposts for Aesop and Boligini to name a few. Their most recent collaboration was with Fendi for a limited-edition furniture collection that launched at last months Design Miami.

DIMORESTUDIO'S Cire Trudon boutique in Paris is a highly stylized take on the world's oldest candle maker's brand. Materials, colour and accents are all used expertly to create a sophisticated, yet slightly whimsical interior – elevating the beauty of the products and creating a mood of desire. Although we have not yet physically experienced this beautiful store, it is top on our list for our next trip to Paris.

Provide is very proud to be a retailer partner with Cire Trudon and are excited to offer more from this inspirational brand in our showroom and online.

On this weeks blog post we wanted to showcase the latest photographic works by David Ellingsen, a photographer and environmental artist creating images of site-specific installations, landscapes and object studies that speak to the natural world and Man's impact upon it. We've had the pleasure of showcasing David's work for many years and this new collection titled 'The Last Stand' is stunning to say the least.

Five generations of David's family have been a part of the forest industry in British Columbia, from falling old growth trees and clear cutting to contributing to local sustainable harvest initiatives and environmental responsibility. His inspiration for this collection came from his past but also from his present and his thoughts of his own responsibilities in regards to forest sustainability.

"As this project began, these iconic remains of the old forest served as a meditation on the human altered landscape but soon evolved into a metaphor for the natural world that supports me, this contemporary globalized culture I am an active part of and the essential incompatibility of the two." - David Ellingsen

For more information on this collection please send us an email at

Provide is pleased to feature the lovely work of Kelly Deck Design on our blog today. The above project is featured in the September issue of Western Living Magazine and we are swooning over the natural beauty of the beachy tones, light coloured woods and soft greys. Every detail is considered in this Vancouver home.

We are thrilled to see products from Provide used - such as bowls on the dining table by Rina Menardi, boxes and trays by Pacific Connections and brass bowls by AKMD in the living area. The soft seaside hues marry nicely with accessory choices, creating a relaxed calming space. Well-done Kelly Deck!

For more information on the products used, please visit our website

 The IDS West show was an exciting weekend for the design community, full of extremely talented exhibitors. Above is a quick sampling of some of my favourite highlights from the show.

The Brooklyn Exchange, curated by the talented ladies of Port and Quarter, was a booth that featured a group of gifted designers from Brooklyn, Asher Israelow, Volk Furniture, Juniper Design and Patrick Weder. I loved the work of Patrick Weder, the paper and wire pendant lamps showcased were inspired by 20th century design and naturally occurring forms. The organic quality and the warm ambience the lights gave off was very appealing.

Vancouver's own Brent Comber has done it again with his beautiful new 'Ikebana' collection; Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging. Made of Douglas Fir and finished with white hard wax oil, these tables can be configured in multiple ways. Brent's booth also had no shortage of drama with his massive Douglas Fir sculptural backdrop.

Textile designer Lori Harrison caught my eye with her abstract painterly cushions. She creates imagery by mindfully experiencing the world and re-imagining the overlooked. Her designs mimic what she see in urban settings such as graffiti and decaying cement walls and turns that imagery into beautifully executed cushions. Her work is now available at Provide and will soon be on our website.

Finally the IDS West 10th Anniversary entrance feature called 'Place' was created by Vancouver's Barter Design Co. A showcase of tall cedars displayed the art of raw to redefined and was inspired by the West Coast and what we have access to right here in our backyard.

Overall I thought the show was a great success, full of so many talents. Can't wait for next year!

On this weeks post we wanted to chat a little bit about GE Monogram's Dinner by Design event in support of the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation hosted here in Vancouver. Provide is thrilled to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with Western Living Magazine to create a Dinner x Design installation amongst some of Vancouver's leading Interior Designers and members of our design community. We were priviliged to have a chance to work with some of the talents that we showcase here at the showroom... such as Bend Seating, David Mellor cutlery, Mud Australia dinnerware and Brooklyn designer Doug Johnston, who created an amazing custom light fixture made entirely of cotton cord.

GE monogram teamed up with The Social Concierge to host a memorable two-day event at the CBC building here in Vancouver. The festivities started with the Cocktail Art party Sunday night where Vancouver's top names in design and media enjoyed live entertainment, custom cocktails and a first hand look at the impressive displays. The intimate VIP dinner followed on Monday night, catered by Culinary Capers.

Designers such as Angela Robinson Design, BYU Design, The Cross Decor & Design and Gillian Segal (to name a few) created stunning concepts that showcased immense attention to detail and were awe inspiring. The designers also enlisted local talents such as Matthew McCormick and Jeff Martin Joinery to help in creating these elaborate custom installations.

Thank you Dinner by Design and Western Living Magazine, we were pleased to be a part of this unique and exclusive social experience that brings our design community together and supports a good cause.
