Brian Paquette Shares Seattle’s Burgeoning Design



The Insider: Brian Paquette

Always classy and never extravagant, designer Brian Paquette‘s work has garnered him a growing following across the Pacific Northwest. With an expanded showroom, we sat down with Paquette to talk about Seattle’s burgeoning international design scene, raising the bar and his current artistic influences.

Inside scoop: We just uncovered the dust from a major expansion to our shop, Brian Paquette at Home–it’s now three-times its original size. My goal with the boutique is to share the things I love from all over the world: Mad et Len candles, furniture from Lawson-Fenning, lighting from Apparatus, and countless home accessories by the likes of Bari Ziperstein, Mirena Kim, Louise Roe Copenhagen, Victoria Morris, MQuan and many more.

Seattle favorites: I love Stock & Pantry, Maison Luxe and Flora and Henri, to name a few.

How is the design scene changing in the region? The design world is starting to understand that Seattle is now an international city and that we have everything at our disposal to do our most thought-provoking and interesting work.

Inspirations of the moment: I’m really excited by the work of designer Pierre Yovanovitch and all of the other design happening around us. I also love ambient music from the likes of Nils Frahm.
