We are excited to be partnering with Hygge & West to present the next installment of Open Studio at IDS Vancouver 2017 – Pattern Explored. Hygge & West is a custom wallpaper and fabric design house founded in 2008 by Aimee Lagos and Christiana Coop. The design team is all about creating a cozy atmosphere in your home with wallpaper and other hygge décor and have collaborated with an amazing roster of designers such as Oh Joy!, Rifle Paper Co., Justina Blakeney, Julia Rothman and Heath Ceramics.
Open Studio – Pattern Explored invites a selected group of interior designers or design firms to participate in a curated installation that focuses on the theme of pattern. Open Studio will occupy 1600 sq ft of prime exhibition space and will feature a group of designers who will all present their concept based on the theme of pattern. With a 10′ x 10’ raw space as a blank canvas, we are welcoming invited participants to showcase their notion of Pattern Explored with the opportunity to create either a functional or conceptual installation within 100 square feet.

As fourth graders, Aimee and Christiana would spend hours drawing outfits, creating pages for a catalog for their future clothing company. While life initially led both in different directions (though both oddly became lawyers for a stint), when an opportunity to start a business together arose in 2008, they remembered their days plotting and planning as young girls and jumped at the chance to bring an old dream to life.
Hygge & West is founded upon the Danish concept of hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) that loosely translates to cozy, but means so much more. All of life’s small but wonderful moments can be described as hygge – curling up by the fireplace with a great book, long informal dinners with close friends, goodnight hugs with your children. We hope that our products help bring more hygge into our customers’ homes – creating a cozy, beautiful environment where small, everyday moments can be enjoyed.
We have been lucky to find many wonderful partners in this endeavor, from the incredibly talented artists that design our wallpapers, to the artisans who hand screen them (watch our video here about how we make our wallpaper!). We’re also very thankful for the team at our warehouse who manage our fulfillment and pay more attention to detail than we possibly could. Our business is like a family to us, and we appreciate everyone who helps keep Hygge & West running!
