We’re making sustainability more accessible–our new showroom combines hands-on experience with one-stop convenience
The countdown is on— Sömn Home will be launching our very first showroom in Vancouver’s historic Gastown district. The soft opening is set for April 26th, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Our locally designed collection of premium eco-friendly linen sheets and cotton/bamboo bath towels have breathed new life into the often wasteful home textile industry. We’ve been proud to work with like-minded partners across North America as an online retailer, but we also understand the in-person appeal of a brick-and-mortar location. Our sustainably-oriented clients shop with intent. They are discerning and want to experience the products that will become part of their homes and lives, learning the stories behind them.
While online sales through our website will continue, our expansion into Gastown empowers us to meet increasing requests for more personalized service. We envision the new space will become a hub for collaboration and community where people can experience the natural, sustainable, lustrous, versatile, breathable fabric that has made Sömn a household name for linen lovers across North America. Other benefits will include:
- In-person, same day service
- Experiencing Sömn Home products and displays
- Same-day shopping and pick-ups
- More collaboration for interior designers and stylists
- Greater stock selection and variety
Shaking Out the Sheets
The new showroom will be at 28 Water Street. It’s a fantastic space, seamlessly combining Gastown’s lively retail landscape with an intimate, boutique shopping experience.
True to our sustainable roots, we decided to restore instead of rebuilding. We reused, repainted, and updated the fixtures as necessary, including swapping out existing lights for energy-efficient LEDs. We also hung linen curtains, made from our heirloom-quality fabric, to help delineate floor space, including a pop-up section for small brands ready to test their products in a retail setting. Rentals will be available by the hour, day, or week. The rear half will be the new Sömn Home showroom--by appointment only.
Visitors can expect personalized service and attention from professionals with in-depth knowledge of Somn’s products and sustainable practices. We will also be able to advise on size, colours, and pairings. As a place to meet the owners, perform exchanges/returns and casually browse, we hope our showroom will inspire lively conversation and idea exchange, enhancing the strong cohesion and feeling that make up the Gastown community.
New to the Sömn Home Family
As part of our Earth Month celebrations, we will also be launching our Upcycled Tabletop Collection and a new spring-inspired pattern from our sustainable linen bedding collection following to our soft-opening. We think launching this new collection will be the perfect kick-off to our new retail chapter--and we look forward to greater design inspiration, feedback, collaboration, and insight as we change how people eat, sleep, and live.
