Today we were on a mission to outfit the store with furniture for customer workspaces. I won't share the floorplan until after I'm sure we're getting the space we've been eyeing but here are some pics of the furniture we'll have in the store.
First up is the table for our "group project area". It's a tall dining table with extra leaves and six padded stools. Very comfy, even for long periods, we think! We'll add more stools later when we see how many we might need.
Next is the "refreshment stand". It's a pretty simple sideboard with plenty of room for a Keurig, K-cups, donuts or pasteries, tea, sweetener, etc.
And, finally, seating for "individual work areas". We ordered four of these comfortable leather armchairs. They'll be placed in pairs with an end table - and maybe a lamp, depending on how our final lighting situation looks.
Then there are also two of these leather occasional chairs. Pull one up to a group and join them or work by yourself over by the front windows. Comfortable and light enough to move around as desired.
And, last but not least, this beast: the "cuddle chair"! We're not sure if it's better for knitting or napping. Either way it's the most comfortable piece of furniture you've ever curled up on. I think we may have to institute some sort of lottery seating because of this one!
Hopefully we get some good news on the property we're looking at leasing come Monday and I can share some information about the space and how we plan to use it. Until then!

Don't worry though: we're actively looking for a retail spot in beautiful downtown Vancouver and are about to enter into negotiations for a property in an historic building on Evergreen Blvd. If all goes well we'll soon be counting down to our grand opening! Stay tuned to this blog and our Twitter and Facebook feeds for the latest news about Urban Wolves Fibre Arts!
Urban Wolves is the realization of the dream to step away from the world of ROIs and CAGRs and get involved full time in the world of creativity. How better to do that than introducing what we hope will be the best little local yarn store in the Portland metro area?
Urban Wolves will, of course, carry a wide selection of high-quality yarns from all of your favorite vendors as well as the tools for working with them. We're looking to carry fiber, yarn, tools, and equipment especially from small local vendors in the Pacific Northwest. Over time we'll introduce classes and project kits for customers of all skill levels. We want our store to be a comfortable place where you and your friends can come shop, practice your art, and relax.
We look forward to sharing a cup of coffee or tea with you and seeing your work!
