Founder of Inform Interiors and Bensen furniture designer, Niels Bendtsen, has launched Inform to the Trade, a new 14,000-sq.-ft. design centre and showroom in Vancouver’s Railtown Design District. Inform to the Trade, will support Inform’s two commercial divisions of the company, Inform Contract and Inform Projects, which have been operating for over nine years.
In partnership with Paul Sjaarda (Inform Contract) and Harvey Reehal (Inform Projects), this new design centre and showroom will provide trade designers with a variety of products for commercial-based projects. Inform Contract is a commercial furniture and lighting showroom that provides architects and designers with products specifically for corporate, hospitality, institution, transportation, and lighting projects, and Inform Projects specializes in the turnkey design, supply, installation, and service of European kitchen, bath, and closet systems for the multi-residential developer. Inform Interiors is open to the public, and Inform to the Trade is open to the trade only.
“Inform to the Trade was established with the concept of designing the ultimate design centre and showroom for architects, designers, and developers to source out their project needs in one place. We want designers to see this as their showroom and toolkit for their projects,” says Bendtsen.
