Pigment is owned by husband-and-wife duo Chad Anglin and Amy Paul. The shop opened in 2007 as an art gallery to showcase local artists. Amy even had her own studio in back and customers could peer in from a loft space. Art led in time to more developed vignettes, sofas, side tables and eventually smaller gifts items. With a heavy focus on the fundamentals of art and good design, thoughtful merchandising followed. Slowly but surely the store outgrew the first location and eventually moved two doors down to their current 3,000 square foot space. Today the shop is recognized for design savvy gifts, flora and furniture. When approached about the transformation, the pair describe their disbelief. They just had no idea where they were headed when they opened nine years ago. It's been a wild ride.

We?re artists who endeavored quite blindly into retail and the shop that followed is hard to define. Curating, merchandising and the visuals in general are the backbone. Creating the displays is really story telling. Each story starts with a thread of an idea and between curating and display develops in to a full grown concept. Style-wise we have an affinity for colorful, graphic patterning and thoughtful compositions and we revere locally made, finely crafted wares above all else. Our aesthetic stays the same, but the individual stories are always evolving. We try not to put restrictions on ourselves. It's a retail playground where we pivot and turn as inspiration strikes.

At Pigment plants in general soften an otherwise more industrial space. The matriarch of our collection is a huge fig tree that reaches up in to the rafters. It towers over succulents and other smaller specimen. You can cruise through and admire their architecture or role your sleeves up and get creative at the Plant Lab, our in-store terrarium bar. As the terrarium craze hit we initially offered workshops. In time, we wanted customers to be able to build with us any time they wanted and the Plant Lab was born. Like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory, we wanted it to feel like a wonderland. Colored sands, mosses and rocks line the walls in a rainbow of color engaging adults and kids alike. It's a go-to for gifting as customers can DIY or order up from one of our associates.
