29 Armstrong Shops the World for Top Design
Tucked in the heart of downtown centre is one of Edmonton’s best kept secrets, but not anymore.
Boasting clients from Europe, Australia and Beverly Hills, 29 Armstrong is a breath of fresh air in the interior design and decor industry.
“We are developing a quiet, but growing recognition,” explains Amedeo Pagliuso, owner of the boutique-style store.
The concept was initiated four years ago with the idea of showcasing high design in a retail setting, he says. “Our furniture and decor represent some of the best designs from all over the world.”
The rich design sources include Holmris of Denmark, specializing in customizable office furnishings; Crown Wallpaper, featuring handmade Japanese paper; and Bensen, a Vancouver-based furniture design company that has secure a permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, just to name a few.
The modern stylings offered in the loft-like showroom provide a snapshot of a lifestyle. Although the majority of the designs pay homage to some of the most celebrated modern master, including some amazing local talent, traditional touches are intermingled to present an appreciation of design in general. This theme repeats as the predominantly modern furnishing are nestled into the refurbished Armstrong Building, one of the city’s older buildings, thus the name of the store.
