    Default Contemporary/Modern/Urban furniture in Calgary

    Does anybody know of any places that sell contemporary/modern/urban furniture in Calgary?

    The ones I've been to and bought from are Sojourn, Home Evolution, Koolhaus, Revolve and Block.

    Are there any other nice places that people have been to?

    what kind of stuff are you looking for Contemporary or Modern. There is a difference. Modern refers to the era of designers from the Bauhaus designers like:

    Bruer
    Le Borbusier
    Mies van deer Rohe and others
    Some people call these "the classics"



    Contemporary is just new furniture that can be just about anything.

    These guys make some really nice stuff that isn't too expensive. They also have a stocking program for quick ship in California.

    http://www.calligaris.it/eng/

    There are out of Italy. We carry ythe line even though we aren;t a retailer. We do contract office furnishings. I've bought some of this stuff and it is really nice.


    Home Evolution used to sell it but they have changed their product offering to manufacturers from Asia. They did it to bring costs down but they didn;t exactly pass those saving on to the customer.



    Other stores to consider would be Killian's in Kensington.

    Its hard to tell you an exact place without knowing your exact needs and style.

    When you find something you like, find out who the manufacturer is first. Then check their site for the local Rep. Quite often you can cut a deal with the rep (if they have one in Calgary) rather than buy retail.

    There is a place in Mount Royal on 17th Ave SE...I can't remember the name...but its in the same shopping complex as the Met.

    I picked most of my furniture for the house from Caban (when it was open), EQ3, Pier 1 and metroelement on Edmonton Trail.

    I find EQ3 is more of a retro look to it....so I didn't find too much as that was not the look I wanted. Metro and the store on 17th have more modern, asian-inspired pieces.

    Home Evolution has a lot of nice things too, but pricey!

    Believe it or not, I took a look at Sears Home yesterday and they also had quite a selection of modern items.

    I'm not too familiar with designers, but I do like some of the stuff Sitcom makes. We got the Leather Edo Chair from them, which was available at Koolhaus. I really like the stuff at Koolhaus , so that's sort of the stuff I'm looking for. www.koolhausdesign.com

    I like designs that are clean and simple. Nothing too funky. It's kind of hard to describe.

    We bought the same house model as the one below, and we like how it was furnished

    I bought my sofa and loveseat from Revolve, near Deerfoot Meadows.

    The service and stuff was great up to the point of delivery. There was some damage we found afterwards, and it's been hell trying to get them to exchange the furniture. So far, it's been 3 months.

    Which community is your Sabal home in? We built with them in 2004 in Copperfield. Liked their designs and floorplans over the other builders in the area at the time.

    I think there is a place on 11th called Killian... You can get Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe (Barcelona chair!) and maybe even some Charles Rennie Mackintosh there....Not cheap, but if you are looking for good modernist furniture it will be difficult to get it while keeping the purse strings tight.

    There is a website for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London out there somewhere... It is dedicated to the display of trade/arts/crafts for the last few hundred years. They've had special exhibitions for modern and art-deco collections... Might find some inspiration.

    http://www.vam.ac.uk/

    Check out the furniture/architecture sections and browse the past exhibits...lots of cool stuff there.

    Ours in up north in Creekside. By far they have the nicest designs out of any homes I've seen. Most of the other homes we looked at were traditional, and they all looked the same. Sabal were the only ones that stood out and were very different. I like the open floor plans.

    Have you checked out their new showhomes in Copperfield? I've seem them on the website and they look really nice.

    Killians sell reproductions...not original production pieces.

    We also had a very bad after sales experience from Revolve, I'd recommend staying away from them.

    BoConcept, 11th ave by Amsterdam Rhino. Everything they have is fully customizable, but be prepared to spend a pretty penny.
