Instagram: March 2014

March went by in a flash. Can we all agree? We need help processing it all, and what better way than with an Instagram round-up from the EQ3 staff at our head office and retail stores! We’ve added a new slideshow feature to our Instagram series that we hope you’ll enjoy. Simply click the ‘Play Slideshow’ button below to view larger versions of each image.


Our favourite image this month is a selfie from Charles (see below), EQ3’s in-house photographer. In addition to getting the perfect shot, he’s usually busy moving furniture, hanging lighting, ironing sheets…and, anything else you can think of! Here he is prepping a new duvet cover for its close-up. Watch for it at EQ3 stores soon!

Other Instagram highlights include a work in progress shot from one of our graphic designers, travel photos (we had to, this winter’s just been too long!), Saint Patty’s Day fun, and other snippets from outside the office.

Check out this month’s Instagram round-up from staff at our head office and EQ3 retail stores.


Take design recommendations from Thom and Jill’s Instagrams. They both snapped shots of Muji product (always gorgeous!), proving that great minds really do think alike. Then warm up with Seema’s rich and earthy colour palette. Heather and Chantal show off their morning beverages of choice. Finally, enjoy a snowy, birds-eye view that Carla captured while jetting to Mexico for work.

This year, we want to show you more of the fun and amazing people behind the EQ3 brand, so we’re giving our monthly Instagram round-ups a new spin! We asked all of our store staff and everyone working with us at the head office to send us their January fave’s. We thought we’d share a few with you.


If you’re longing for a winter escape, check out Amar, Katherine and Tiffany’s travel grams (and maybe sign up for this contest on the EQ3 Facebook Page). Then, get lost in Heather’s cat selfie and Alex’s cat gram, which are proving to be a great distraction from work today. Finally, consider Monica’s words over the weekend. Come Monday morning, you just might find an excuse not to go into the office! Happy weekend, everyone.



Love this neoclassical architecture in modern ambiance.  – Amar, E-Commerce Front-End Administrator (Head Office)



My cat Benedict enjoying a lazy morning (on an EQ3 duvet cover too!).  – Heather, System Administrator (Head Office)



Hong Kong’s skyline.  – Katherine, Sales Associate / Design Consultant (EQ3 Emeryville, California)



Our new dresser is Alan approved.  – Alex, Graphic Designer (Head Office)



Making memories are worth more than making money.  – Monica, Visual Coordinator (EQ3 Granville)



New York: Manhattan Bridge  – Tiffany, Shop at Home Consultant (EQ3 Calgary)

Instagram: The Best of 2013

2013 was a great year – both inside the office and at home. We’re excited to see what 2014 has in store for all of us at EQ3, but we couldn’t move forward without giving 2013 one last Insta look. We asked our in-house designers to share their favourite Instagram from the past year.


Here’s what they sent in:



Kitchen: An installation in the Walker Art Center by Kiki Smith.  – Alex, Graphic Designer



Urban home mail delivery nostalgia.  – Charles, Marketing Photographer



Roscoe the dog carries our beers on NFL Sundays.  – Paul, Graphic Designer



View from up high. Historic Whitla Building, Winnipeg’s Exchange District.  – Amy Walters, Social Media Associate



Block printing. India.  – Carla, Product Development Coordinator



Weekend pop up shop for the 2013 Winnipeg Design Festival. – Thom, Creative Director



There’s nothing I enjoy more than a good beach day with a bunch of great friends.  – Heather, Graphic Designer



Best found item in our new house so far! Pictorial medical guide from 1952, Coffee table book for sure.  – Brenna,

Merchandising and Store Planning Designer

And just like that, it’s the end of the month and time for another Instagram round-up.


This time, our team sent in photos from their holiday celebrations, outdoor adventures and personal design projects. The highlight: Alex, one of our graphic designers, dressed up as a certain movie character for Halloween (pictured middle row, centre) and we think he really nailed the look. His Followers must have thought so too – the Likes from this photo trumped all previous shots. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true EQ3 Instagram round-up without at least one pet shot, so we’ve thrown a doggy-gram into the mix, as well. How could we resist?
