February may be the shortest month of the year, but we saw no shortage of inspiring interiors, designed by you! This month brought playful spaces, elegant dining, artfully decorated shelves, and cozy couch naps. Here’s our roundup of #DesignwithEQ3 February favourites.
Reminder! Share your design story using #DesignwithEQ3 on Instagram, and you’ll have the chance to be featured on our social channels, website, blog and more.
New for spring 2017, the Cello Bed is EQ3’s latest upholstered bed introduction. Inspired by the cello instrument, this bed is equally as full-bodied, featuring sculptural curves.
Tell us about your background
Hi. I grew up in Regina and moved to Winnipeg to study architecture at the University of Manitoba when I was 18. While I was in architecture school I experimented with everything but architecture. I was really into medium format photography for years up until recently – it’s become cost-prohibitive to shoot with. I also found I was attracted to a much smaller scale of design than architecture – products, furniture, and graphic design. Luckily the program and my instructors at the time allowed me to do my thing. I guess I continued that interdisciplinary spirit after graduating and through my work at EQ3.
While eating out can be a romantic tradition, there’s something intimate about dining at home. We’re not referring to take-out on the couch, but taking the time and effort to get dressed, cook a meal, and set a beautiful table for you and your company to enjoy.
Edgar Oquendo is the Research and Development Manager at EQ3 and works closely with our Product Development team to execute their designs.
What do you do with EQ3?
Aside from leading the R&D team, I develop upholstery prototypes based on the Product Development team’s designs. Once a style is complete I introduce the final design to production, and continue to develop and improve the design overtime based on client feedback.
