Lapchi – Portland, Oregon

October 30, 2011

Lapchi is deliriously happy to announce the opening of Atelier Lapchi, Portland

One of our longest journeys to fruition is complete; Atelier Lapchi Portland’s door is now open

It’s a glorious fall weekend in Oregon. The streets of NW Portland are full of people riding bikes, walking dogs and heading towards the hilly trails to the west of our new showroom, trails so close you can see the dense evergreens of the park and the beautiful homes nearby. Also to the west and east of our showroom rise both the historic and Leed Certified condominiums of the Pearl District, the Park Blocks and the Willamette Riverfront. Which of the people walking into our showroom and gasping delightedly live there? We are finding out…

Here are a few of the photo stories on the path to the showroom opening.

An infinite amount of light, when it’s not raining.

This is just the beginning – we will share more. No matter the long journey, right now, this instant, we are ready to work. Congratulations to everyone in Lapchi and we do mean everyone. We couldn’t have created such a beautiful, lovely working space for design clients and friends if the entire company had not banded together in support.

Kerry and John enjoy the moment

ATLA, Fall 2011

Atelier Lapchi, West Hollywood, Celebrates Change

Fall Markets in LA can be fun, but “Fall” with its variegated warm coloration, may visually exist only within showrooms in the Pacific Design Center.

The Display Stage at a Glance - Atelier Lapchi

Atelier Lapchi’s Display Stage – it’s the first glance that captures the client. Coordinating patterns command the long view and all sides of center stage.  Clients recognize in an instant installation possibilities for Manhattan Beach, Wilshire condos and a Chelsea Brownstone – bi-coastal designing being the norm these days.

2011 Fall Market Variation

Staging allows designers to visually coordinate entire homes while working comfortably in our Atelier. Samples line the walls and are easy to transport. Small stacks of standard size carpets demonstrate technique and are available for purchase yet “Bespoke” is Lapchi’s specialty — Atelier Lapchi was designed to facilitate interesting and challenging projects requiring custom production.

Texere for Lapchi Display

Displays change continuously; color and texture cues are derived from history, fashion, or simply the season. This fall, visit Atelier Lapchi in Suite G-176, the Pacific Design Center, West Hollywood. It’s very difficult not to glance – so easy to enter.
