With innovation as their compass and sustainability as their guiding star, Canadian lifestyle brand LIVØM is making waves. Its pièce de résistance, is that it is for customers who crave beautiful spaces and apparel, with minimal impact to the environment.
“With LIVØM, we want to offer a sensory experience to our customers: a moment for them to relax and dream,” noted co-founder and creative director, Paule Lafrance. “To imagine their ideal space, wardrobe, or décor. In a time where shopping has become almost more of a task, than an activity, we are looking to offer a completely new universe, with a timeless lifestyle, that allows us to marry fashion, furniture, and décor.”
In a Postmedia interview, Lafrance explained the derivation of the company name: “LIV signifies life in Danish and sounds just like the word live in English. OM is a mantra found in yogi culture that represents the union of the body, mind and spirit.”
Not only are many of LIVØM’s apparel items made from recycled plastic bottles and natural fibres, but they are also designed in Canada – marrying sustainability with the desire to shop locally. Additionally, home décor and furniture offerings are developed with recycled materials, like repurposed wood and handwoven fibres. Materials are chosen for quality, to ensure these products are made to last.
