After seeing photos of our work using their products, they invited us to their head office to give us a behind the scenes tour, meet their team and film a video interview discussing the ins and outs of our business.
Upon arriving we were greeted by Joy and Tony from marketing and then promptly met Jeremy, their director of strategy who gave us a tour of their uber clean and modern warehouse. After that we made our way to the other side of the building where the mock up store, marketing team and photo studio are housed.
We were really impressed how innovative, genuine, young and dare we say "hip" everyone was. Not what some people would imagine a large furniture company head office to be like.
After meeting the rest of their marketing team we had croissants and donuts with Viviane, one of the family owners and Janika, their director of retail. We had great conversations about furniture trends and the way the industry is heading.
We then got a tour of their impressive photo studio and previewed their upcoming releases, all of which we were really impressed by! Jeremy also showed us some prototypes of condo furniture, one of which was a coffee table that transformed into a dining table.
After being treated to a tasty lunch, we started getting ready for our video interviews with a professional tv make up artist. Definitely a first for us! The video team then set up and we filmed the interview discussing how we started Leclair decor, what we love about Ottawa and how our process works. It will all be part of a promo for the new Structube store opening at Lansdown park! We'll also be there at the store opening acting as brand ambassadors and giving free consultations and decorating advice.
Overall we had an unbelievable day and were genuinely humbled by their hospitality and excitement on collaborating with us.
Thank you Structube for having us! Stay tuned for more photos and videos coming soon!
