Pigment is Growing (up)...

After five and a half years Pigment secured a new lease in a new home just two doors from the old space, and it is bittersweet to leave the place where it all started. Humble beginnings come to mind when thinking of the genesis of Pigment (then known as Kalos Designs). Initially a shared space with Kate Ross Shoes, it functioned primarily as a space to display Amy's artwork. In time, they featured other talented artists, Ramone Zarate of Autonomous Design Studio and Britt Neubacher of Tend Living were among the firsts. Store music blared from a small boom box and a one year old puppy named Cash greeted you at the door.  A year later and a name change to Pigment, the modest storefront grew into a full fledged lifestyle store. After five years we found ourselves growing, growing, growing! So much so that we moved into a bigger space.
