Vancouver Special

Modern home/design accessories

Named for the under appreciated architectural style of home design popular in Greater Vancouver throughout the 1970s – the Vancouver Special – it’s no wonder this busy Main Street shop is popular with local architects and design enthusiasts. In fact, its owner Anne Pearson is a founder of P4A (Party for Architects) and an organizer with Vancouver Design Week.

Far from being exclusive to those coterie, however, Vancouver Special caters to everyone and offers a nice selection of affordable home accessories and design-related books and products as well as some home furnishings and original art.

It’s not vintage modernism but definitely caters to that design esthetic.
