Stampede in Review: Virgin No More

Stampede in Review: Virgin No More

Well the dust has settled and the sun has gone down on yet another successful Calgary Stampede.  As I was packing away my vintage western shirts and appetite for fried food, I found myself reminiscing about what makes the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth so great. I was lucky this year to see it all anew from the perspective of someone who had no idea what the heck they were in for; my Stampede virgin, Michael. While I rest and recover for another 355 days I would like to present the 2014 installation of the soon-to-be-annual Stampede Photo Round Up.  It is a photo carousel of  friends, the Boom team,  event partners, stampede entertainers, and of course, Michael.

Associate, Rene Menendez, played host to our intrigue with a private tour of their beautiful retail space at 940 11th Ave S.W. in Calgary Rene described the collaboration as an concept born out of the same principles around design and business vision. “Both B&B Italia and Teknion are family owned and operated businesses with strong corporate cultures. They share similar core beliefs around life and work”, explained Menendez.   And it shows in the thoughtfulness of the elegant furnishings from some of the world’s most celebrated designers like Jeffrey Bernett and Antonio Citterio.
