P Design Gallery
Do you ever have those moments when you feel like the stars have aligned, the gods are smiling and all is good in the world? Well I had that experience yesterday when I walked into Denver's new P Design Gallery. This gallery/store/exhibition space is just what Denver has been missing. Owners Paul and Pifuka Hardt have assembled an amazing collection of furniture and accessories from the latest and greatest designers. (They are also the nicest people ever, so go in and say hi.)
P Design Gallery has the same conceptual pieces and top designer items normally seen in the galleries of NY (or if you live in Denver, the pages of a magazine). Here I was holding one of Tobias Wong's 'Ballistic Roses' in my hands. Was this Denver or Oz? For all the Denver design lovers out there, the P Design Gallery is the perfect compliment to Denver's emerging design scene.
With great stores like Fancy Tiger supporting the indie designer and places like Mod Livin' outfitting your home with style, P Design Gallery is the cherry on top. The place where you can go to see museum quality design pieces AND still shop for items that won't break the bank. For instance, right next to a throw by Studio Job sat these great little vinyl vases by the Japanese design team D Bros. which will set you back a mere $14. (You can order them by emailing the store here.)
P Design Gallery is currently running an exhibit with Citizen: Citizen until March. Next up: Denyse Schmidt. The exhibitions are free and open to the public. 2590 Walnut St.
Denver, consider our city very lucky.
