Today’s music playlist is brought to you by Nils Vik!
Nils is a former EQ3 designer and product developer. One of his most notable designs for EQ3 is the Burrows Bedroom, a collection that’s still in production! He left EQ3 in 2011 to start his own business venture – Parlour Coffee – an independent coffee shop in downtown Winnipeg’s Exchange District. Parlour quickly became the hottest spot to grab a cup of quality, North American roasted coffee or espresso. The shop offers fresh and local baked goods, and contains a small retail store selling a carefully curated selection of coffee related goods! They also feature a rotating selection of artwork. Building on the success of Parlour, Nils opened a sister shop – Little Sister Coffee Maker – with his sister-in-law Vanessa Stachiw in Osborne Village last fall.
There appears to be no stopping this guy, and we’re excited to see what’s next for him. If you’re in the Winnipeg area, stop by Parlour and Little Sister Coffee Maker and say hello. Follow Parlour Coffee on Tumblr at parlourcoffee.tumblr.com, and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
