It’s hard for us to keep the secret, but we’ve found a way to get a little taste of Europe without ever having to step foot on a plane. Named after a quaint street in London, Goodge Place, south Granville’s newest boutique and coffee bar, sources many of its products from England’s capitol. This one-stop shop stocks products with extraordinary craftsmanship and design, offering home décor and accessories from some of Europe’s most renowned designers, including Jake Phipps and House of Hackney.
When Goodge Place co-founder Emily McLean moved to London for work, she fell in love with the high-quality craftsmanship happening in the European design industry. After living there for a decade, she decided to bring back that one-of-a-kind design and masterful technique to Vancouver—a place she has always called home.
With the help of her mother Patricia McLean, she opened Goodge Place in November. The shop is stocked with a wide assortment of goods, from books and wall décor to handbags and sunglasses. There’s also a design lab where local interior designers can hold meetings, as well as an exclusive custom tile gallery from the legendary World Mosaic. “We believe that beautiful space lends to happier people, so hopefully our products can help achieve this,” Emily says.
|Coffee and home décor? Now that’s our kind of pairing. Locally roasted Milano coffee is available to enjoy in the shop, or to go. An added bonus is the freshly baked brownies, truffles, and meringues.|
|Goodge Place also offers ready-made seasonal bouquets.|
|For those interior designers who work at home, fear not—you’ll never again have to rush around cleaning the house before clients come over. Goodge Place offers a beautifully decorated design lab for rent—the perfect meeting place to discuss projects.|
|Henry, is that you? Guaranteed you won’t find this anywhere else in Vancouver!|
|We were blown away by these luxurious custom European tiles, and you will be too. Watch out though, these beautiful designs may inspire you to start your renovation a little earlier than planned.|
