"A great place to find great Swedish design that you would not find anywhere else!"
"Örling and Wu could have been just another thoughtfully curated Gastown store, it runs more friendly in vibe. The owners met in England while attending design school, so the fresh mix of contemporary, vintage, and classic pieces for sale reflect a European sensibility"
"A gorgeous store, Örling and Wu is a celebration full of unpretentious simplicity and understated elegance. The decor ideas in Örling and Wu are full of Danish design components and things that partner well with the light and bright. Definitely inspired by this place, this is a fun place to come in and be inspired by a blending of modern and traditional. I was dreaming of redecorating something beautiful, accessible and livable the whole time I was walking through this store." ~Rachel H
"A very unique shop in Gastown- love to see what is new for home decor."
"As I left the store, it was as if I had left the quiet contemplation of a meditative space, and was immediately deposited back to the car honking, gritty reality that is modern day Gastown. As I walked past another 4 or 5 spaces currently under development on the same block, I know that Örling & Wu has without a doubt raised the bar for new Retail in Vancouver."
"The majority of their products derive from Europe, all so lovely in their own way. This enchanting boutique was so inspiring, everywhere I turned there was something more beautiful and intricate than the other. Gorgeous!"
"The store was simply stunning. The feeling was calm, the colours subtle, and the stock was arranged and edited with great care and attention to detail. I always know I am in an perfectly edited space, when I have to look at EVERYTHING. The way that the items were displayed allowed my eye to see not only the grouping, but each individual item."
"Örling & Wu is known for their impeccable styling and diverse assortment of gifts, housewares, dishes, fabrics and so much more, all nestled and displayed in a beautiful setting (with that trademark wallpaper!)"
"Örling & Wu reminds me of the wonderful stores from Paris and Stockholm, with dreamy French toiletries and beautiful textiles. I can only imagine what I could do with an empty condo… For now, I will continue to pick up small baubles and drool over everything in the store. Frederik & Julie, thanks for bringing your vision to life and your fabulous taste! Please pack me into your carry on next time you go to Europe on a buying trip. I will bake you brownies in exchange!"
"Gastown's bustling design district has just received a long-awaited boost with the arrival of Örling & Wu, a European-inspired design boutique that is already taking Water Street by storm. The new boutique has scarcely been open one week and is already carving out a niche as the destination for many of Europe's finest product lines, formerly unavailable in Vancouver."
