Our last blog was all about West Elm and their new store in Calgary which officially opened this morning at 10:00. Last night was the Grand Opening Party and Taegan, one of our team members, had the pleasure of attending the event. Both Debbie and I were out of town, so we were really glad that Taegan snapped all these great pics. It seems that Mount Royal Village was the place to be last night.
As soon as I got close to the open doors of West Elm, I could feel the buzz and vibrating energy. Music from inside the store filled the street. Many curious passerby’s stopped a moment to feast their eyes on stacks of silk geo pillows, mobile pendant chandeliers, and marble topped tables. Luckily I had an invitation, so I was able to walk right in.
With so many beautiful pieces of glassware and hanging art pieces, it was hard to know where to look first. Although the store was full of beautiful products, it was very easy to feel comfortable and welcomed. The store is set up in such a way that it never feels overwhelming or contrived. I was excited to explore the store and enjoy all the ‘west elm’ touches.
Congratulations West Elm on a location well done. Oh and you certainly throw one great opening party! Cheers.
