Big Changes in the Air...
We believe in simplicity.
Since we began almost five years ago, Christopher David has been a multi-faceted, lifestyle brand. While we’ve embraced and celebrated the bustle that comes from flowers, home décor, workshops, interior design, and even coffee, in today’s over-stimulated world though, we’ve most recently developed a penchant for simplicity.
In order to better serve our growing customer base, Christopher David will now be focused exclusively on the home. We believe home is the most important place in the world, and that shifting our brand exclusively toward residential interior design as well as selling furniture + decor under the Christopher David umbrella will provide invaluable simplicity to our clients and customers.
If you're looking for help making home your favorite place in the world, we'd love to meet with you.
Concurrently, as we shift Christopher David toward a streamlined, residential-focused mission, we’ve also continued to expand our commercial design work. Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of our collaboration with other creatives to create Studio Butch, a full-service commercial design firm capable of taking on a wide range of spaces from retail to hospitality; office spaces to restaurants.
We believe in the evolution of business.
And as such, at Christopher David, we seek to serve customers where they are shopping. We’re pleased to announce the official launch of our expanded online collection at Christopher David Home. We’ve sourced furniture, lighting, art and décor designed for what we call the casual eclectic home. The entirety of the collection can be delivered virtually anywhere across the country, and will continue to grow with new and seasonal collections.
Though we’re excited for this evolution and the broader audience we can serve, we feel bittersweet in announcing that we are translating our retail business fully online. As consumer buying habits continue to move to the web, we must stay with the trend. Our Portland retail shop will close at the end of July, and we will move to our new design studio and furniture showroom in The Film Exchange in nearby NW. We will be offering great discounts on our in-shop stock, as well as orders, during our Everything Must Go Sale starting June 21. All customer and client orders will continue to be fulfilled from the shop until close, and thereafter from our studio.
We believe life is about relationships.
We are so excited for the trajectory of our business, and though this evolution of our business doesn't amount to a goodbye, we'd be remiss not to acknowledge the joy meeting so many people in our shop has brought; the wonderful memories, friendships, and a few crazies we've endured. We hope to continue to serve many of you in the future at Christopher David Home, or Studio Butch (or both!).
In the mean time, we hope you'll come by to say hello and get some great deals during our Everything Must Go Sale because as they say... everything must go!
