My Fluffy Friend’s Pet Shop

Take a look at My Fluffy Friend’s Pet Shop, a project that was designed by myself and a colleague.  With a limited budget, we were able to turn this 950 square foot space into a fresh, fun, and playful environment that was both pet and retail friendly. 
View from the front of the store below.  The structural column was well disguised as a “tree”, with painted MDF rings suspended from the ceiling.  Various  millwork around the base provided display opportunities.  my fluffy friend's pet shop interior design retail contemporary color kitsilano vancouver dog decor
The clients wanted an interactive space for both dogs and owners.  A mini agility course was created for dogs to experience  different textures and surfaces. Fake grass, pebbles, a ramp and tunnel were incorporated under the display shelves.

The cash desk area proudly  displays the company logo on the back wall, and a glowing green grass inspired back lit front panel provides light and interest.  Little mushroom shaped pegs on the desk top allows owners to temporarily leash their dog while they complete their transaction.  One of the company’s main products is all natural jerky of various types.  They are displayed on the entry wall leading to the cash desk. my fluffy friend's pet shop interior design retail contemporary color kitsilano vancouver dog decor
