It’s hard to believe that Hopea’s trunk show at Inform Interiors happened just over 3 weeks ago. It was a lovely experience thanks to the friendly staff at Inform and an open and curious bunch of Vancouver customers. Here are a few photos of Hopea’s display taken during the three days I spent in Inform’s beautiful Gastown showroom.
Setting up before the show, Chris helps me fit the rings on the fantastic plaster stands that he designed. They looked great in the cases – like little plinths.
The view, a superb library and its geothermal space heating made my stay at Inform very comfortable!

Settled now in my new office, Hopea will be running at full steam once again – lots of beautiful new pieces (including those seen here) to be added to the site in coming weeks!
