WHAT: This owner-operated store in trendy Hintonburg is a gem for Ottawans looking for quality furnishings. The store is the leading Farrow and Ball distributor in the city. The British-based paint company has 132 colours in its line, all based on classics that are tried and true, not the evolution of trends. With no VOCs, the paint is made from pigments, not tints, and is a darling amongst home renovators and architects. Uproar offers complete design services including custom furniture, a good selection of wallpaper and full drapery service.
BEHIND THE SCENES: Owner and principal lead designer Janise Saikaley is hands-on, working with clients both in and out of the store. Her philosophy is based on providing high quality goods with a twist; always a little something unique always goes into her work and within the store. Janise believes that less is more and that good quality goes a long way when decorating a home.
ADDED BONUS: Finding a fabulous area carpet in Ottawa suddenly has become a whole lot easier, as this store has recently introduced a vintage rug collection to its inventory.
