Your home… It’s something that brings you joy, brings you a place to relax after a long day and also starts your day off. It protects your family and is a place that you spend your most time in. But a house is not a home, until you make it a home. You add your small touches; you add your feelings, emotions, thoughts, and creativity. You want someone to come into the room and feel what you had in mind with the room; you want someone to compliment, add their thoughts and have it open to discussion. You want to be proud of your home; you want to be proud about the atmosphere you developed for it.
Your home is an extension of you, of your details, of your thoughts, and of your feelings. But it’s tough building an atmosphere that is not only for you, but also for others to enjoy as well. You want your place to be warm, inviting, and to have it’s own personality and story.
But how do you build an atmosphere comfortable for you and others to enjoy? - just enter EastWood.
Eastwood, is here to help to add some feeling and emotion to create inviting rooms. Building atmospheres can be challenging, but after setting foot into the new Eastwood showroom at 433 Chabanel w, Montreal, you might start to know what we mean.
We had the privilege of being taken on an exclusive tour with the staff and owner of the Eastwood business before their Opening that happened April 15th. Upon entering the store, we were greeted by a beautiful wood piece that looked, itself, like a piece of art. With so many details, curves, shapes, and erosions, it definitely had the ‘wow’ factor there. After the welcoming “Namaste” and a nice cup of warm tea with lives used from their outdoor rooftop garden, we were taken through the store to see the full collection of what Eastwood brought to the Montreal people, and it didn’t disappoint.
We first came across a beautiful Chamcha wood table, then brought for a wonderful bedroom set with an amazing canopy on top with light pouring through the detailed cuts of the canopy.
The EastWood leaf logo symbolizes the whole essence of the business. A symbol of the growth. The four elements of nature; earth, fire, air and water are reflected in the design everywhere around. The idea of having nature elements as the centerpiece of the business definitely added to the whole environment of what EastWood wanted to create, a living store with atmosphere in mind.
The owner explained to us that there are imperfections in the wood, but that’s what makes it all part of it. The way the light hits it, the process and story related to these pieces and the wonderful details that each piece has tells it’s own story.
We asked the owners of Eastwood to describe their perfect compliment when one of their potential clients is interested in a piece. They explained that their perfect compliment doesn’t come from speech, it comes from body language and how they physically react to the furniture, and it shows their passion and mind being provoked from each piece.
These pieces are awe-inspiring and beautiful freestanding art with most pieces keeping the originality and heritage of each piece, as its main focus. With the pieces providing atmosphere, personality, stories, and a conversation starter for any room in your home. If you want to build a home, build an inviting place where you can enjoy spending most of your time in, be sure to see the pieces at EastWood, you will be very impressed. Plus, you don’t have to say anything; your body language will say it all.
