On Friday I had the opportunity to sit down with designer and owner of Metric Design Centre, Tamara Bowman. The new interior design store is situated in a unique heritage lot in on 2nd Avenue N. We found a seat in the boutique style show room and chatted about the beginnings of Metric, what the store is all about, and some extra tidbits about Tamara.
Tamara Bowman has been in design for the past 12 years. After completing her schooling at the Pacific Design Academy in Victoria, she started with a home-based business. Slowly her small business grew within the industry and she began needing more help. It was at this point she opened Metric Design Centre.
Metric Design Centre is a one stop shopping experience for clients, designers, architects and builders. You can find a wide range of products including kitchen, bathroom, flooring, furniture and décor. They offer their own custom design products as well as an array of products from local retailers. Metric also offers interior design services with their handful of in-house designers. The shop really lets you get a good feel for Metrics design style. Metric continues to create opportunities for designers to work and train under Tamara Bowman.
So next time you are down on 2nd Avenue be sure to stop into Metric Design Centre. Not only are the designers warm and welcoming, but also there is an endless amount of inspiration! Also be sure to click the link below to visit their website. Check out their services, designers and gallery. Looks like they will also have a web store available in the near future!
