This month’s playlist comes from Heather Ferguson.

 

Heather is a professional interior designer with Number TEN Architectural Group, a creative and influential design firm that has played a major role in designing some of Winnipeg’s most recognizable landmarks. Over her 25 year career, Heather has worked on a diverse range of projects from corporate offices to retail and healthcare facilities. Despite having worked on some of Winnipeg’s more complex interiors, she lists her own home renovations as the most challenging of all. Designed by Donohue Gerson Architects in 1953, her home is a mid-century modern classic that she and her husband have been renovating over a number of years. With this latest interiors ‘megaproject’ almost complete, she looks forward to sinking into her EQ3 Reverie sofa in the family room while gazing out the windows and shifting her focus to the landscaping…

We’re always interested to learn how creative people go about their work. How do they get their creative juices flowing?

 

For many designers, music is a way of tuning out the world and finding inspiration. This certainly is the case for Thom, EQ3’s Creative Director. When he’s not in meetings or doing store visits, you can usually find Thom at his computer with ear buds in and the music playing.

 

Here’s 13 tracks that Thom’s currently listening to while he works. May they inspire your work day too!

Music Library: Nils Vik Listens to Music

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.
