“If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn’t thinking”
– George S. Patton
At Urbanomic Interiors we provide turn-key interior design and styling services for urban contemporary homeowners and design-forward commercial spaces related to food-service, hospitality, beauty and wellness. Our commercial project types include restaurants, cafes, bars, bakeries, salons, and spas. Our full-service approach means that we manage all of the details and co-ordination throughout the project and our goal is to deliver the ultimate experience for our clients, with magazine-worthy results.
We have a preference for clean lines, well balanced proportions with just enough detail to add interest without adding visual clutter. Contemporary graphics and patterns have their place in our projects, but like the pauses between musical notes, these things need room to breathe in order to be appreciated.
We begin each project by exploring the desired mood and personality for each space, and then we apply those design elements that support that result. We are inspired by: the simplicity of Zen + Scandinavian design; the warmth and quirkiness of mid-century modern; the rawness and texture of industrial elements; the clean lines of contemporary architecture. Then we like to toss in some street-inspired artwork and funky lighting elements, resulting spaces that are interesting enough not to be boring, yet calm enough not to give you a headache.
It is critical that our residential clients are aligned with our design style, so we won’t be the right designer for you if you are looking for traditional, ostentatious, glam, or shabby-chic.. For our commercial clients we work in somewhat more of a more flexible aesthetic, which is always tied to their brand. We rely heavily on technology throughout our project processes so our clients must be comfortable with using computers and smartphones.
Through excellent space planning and creative problem solving we engineer enjoyable experiences, with the aim of bringing humans into physical harmony with their man-made environments.
We consider furniture fixture selections from many angles, including cost, durability, comfort, and of course, style. We encourage our clients to purchase quality items that will last, instead of temporary pieces that will end up in landfill. Making sure that your unwanted items are put to good use through charities or forwarded to furniture refinishers and up-cyclers is something that we are passionate about.
We demand that our projects include only original art and photography, or limited edition prints that are signed and numbered. In a world of mass production, we want to help support independent artists around the world, as opposed to big factories where the working conditions are not within our control.
If you want to optimize your environment in the Urbanomic fashion, we would love to talk to you! Call us at 613.216.1766 or send us a message!
