About Us

Shop Concept

Vancouver Special is a retail store offering a carefully edited and hand picked selection of contemporary furniture, sofas, design objects, household accessories, and art and architecture books. Our aim is to promote the idea that good design can be accessible, affordable, of high quality and bring pleasure to daily life.

We opened in April 2008 on Main Street in the heart of Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood.

Vancouver Special is a local, independent family business. It is owner-operated by recovered-architect and design advocate Anne Pearson. She is constantly researching and traveling in order to provide a fresh, constantly evolving product mix.
