Room6 is located in Deep Cove, a little gem of a village nestled in between the mountains and the ocean just outside Vancouver, Canada. Our backdrop will take your breath away and I pinch myself everyday on the walk to and from work. Or, as is usually the case, run to work since I'm pretty much always late.
I scour the city, province, country, globe and every nook and cranny in between to find special things that tell a story, tug at your heartstrings and make you smile. After 8 years, the walls have more spackle than drywall from my slight obsession with creating an environment worthy of the special things I find.
Our clients often tell me they're not exactly sure what they'll find when they visit, but they know they'll find something special. Whether it's the perfect letterpress card, a gasp-inducing cashmere scarf or the sweetest little gift for your best friend's new baby ... connecting just the right special thing with just the right nice person is what it's all about.
I'm lucky to call so many of you friends, thanks for supporting Room6.
Here are some nice things other folks have said about our little shop over the years:
Vancouver Magazine: The always-charming Room6 specializes in nothing and everything—shop-owner and tastemaker Megan Curren just collects what she fancies. Frequent visits are necessary; new items arrive weekly.
Wish Magazine: Tucked in picturesque Deep Cove, this room will brighten any rainy day…
Western Living Magazine: The Room6 proprietor says her shop is full of “special things for nice people.” And you do feel charmed padding through the shop’s whimsical collection of jewellery, stationery and gifts. A smart place to grab a dress, too.
History: Room6 was established in 1997. It's named after the Harvard Square apartment where I lived back then. Number six. At the time I was designing websites and making pillows and I couldn't commit to either profession so I named my fledgling design business something a bit more mysterious. The name stayed with me when I opened up Room6 in Deep Cove in early 2005.
