Creston's Newest Gallery ~ Puffin Design Is A "Must See" During Your Summer Travels

"Creativity is a lifestyle, and ideas are the product and lifeblood of that lifestyle."  ~ Miles G. Batt

Get inspired by Puffin Design’s 
unique, eclectic and sometimes even outrageous home decor. 

If you're traveling through the Creston Valley be sure to put a visit to Puffin Design gallery on your "places to see" list. This designer gallery is the newest creative venture for Bart and Alison Bjorkman,both designers, creators and artists.  

Along with their own creations, these designers also showcase 
the work of other local creatives.  

Some pieces like this one are a collaboration. The ironwork is by Andrew Bibby and the concrete top is by Bart Bjorkman of Legend Rock Concrete.

The rescued and refurbished chairs are the work of Alison Bjorkman.  

For a sneak peak at the process, check out Alison's blog 
as she works on a commissioned chair.  

Each of these pieces are unique works of art
 that would make a statement in your home.

Are you planning a bathroom remodel?   

Here are a few gift ideas.  
The decorative wine bottles are designed by local artist Win Dinn
(I have one on display in my own home and guests are always oohing and awing over it)

 (mixed media artist, instructor and a dear friend!)

And one more photo.....take a look at this knock-out sliding barn door that separates the front gallery from the working area at the back of the shop.
 (I want one!)

 There is a viewing window to the left where one can watch the artists at work.  Along the back wall ~ lighting by Bart and pottery by Alison.  

There is so much more, but, you must come in and see for yourself!

The gallery is located  on 137 - 15th Ave N Creston, BC
Half a block North of Canyon Street (turn at Jimmy's Pub)

Stop in to the Creston Valley Chamber Of Commerce and Visitor Centre, where the friendly staff will help you plan your adventures. 

  And while here take in the new Show and Sale of ART 
by a variety of local artists and artisans (including myself).

What a brilliant post about Puffin! Such fabulous advertising!
Look at how charming their gallery associate is!
Your photos are so sumptuous, they just make me itch to go and see the place for myself - which is exactly what I will be doing when we visit the Dinns in a couple of weeks time!
Thanks for sharing this terrific post!

Thanks Alice! That associate is even more charming in person. Enjoy your visit here!
