In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Douglas Coupland Designs Luxury Furniture Line For SwitzerCultCreative

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- Prominent writer & visual artist Douglas Coupland is launching a collection of furniture designs, in collaboration with Vancouver-based SwitzerCultCreative, a brother-sister luxury design collective. The Douglas Coupland for SwitzerCultCreative collection is being unveiled on January 24th at Toronto's Interior Design Show (IDS 13) taking place from January 24th to January 27th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

"The 'Douglas Coupland for SwitzerCultCreative' collection is a reflection of everything I use daily," says Coupland. "These are pieces that will unleash creativity, dopamine, high style and timelessness into their user's world."

Douglas Coupland for SwitzerCultCreative consists of a desk, chair, lamp and bookshelves.

The Desk: The Bento Box Escritoire and the special edition Paint Box Escritoire are two variations on a personal theme from Coupland. His fascination with an escritoire, rather than a run-of-the-mill desk, inspires thought, broadens his mind and because of the nature of the escritoire - a vessel for writing alone - encourages the thought process and makes him want to write more.

The Writer's Seat: Available in five different colours, the seat fits perfectly beneath either escritoire. "When I went to art school in Hokkaido, I had to study several Japanese art forms - ikebana, rock arranging, calligraphy and sumi-e painting," says Coupland. "I think everybody should study these things. It makes you reframe the way you see the world. These seats are unexpectedly ergonomic and work whether you're doing ink work, or blogging on a MacBook Pro."

Ryoan-ji Lamps: These lamps take strong influences from Japanese culture, specifically a checker pattern seen by Coupland in Kyoto's Ryoan-ji Temple in 1986. A floor lamp and a desk lamp have shades made with wire frames wrapped with a translucent shoji-type material.

Osaka Bookshelves: These sleek, stacking bookshelves will provide a luxurious home for any book collection. Simple in style, the Osaka bookshelves are so named after Coupland saw similar shelving that survived the 1995 Osaka earthquake. They have been designed to encase paperbacks, hardcover and oversize books. Says Coupland, "They're simple, smart, strong, and can be arranged in any number of configurations like Legos. They also have caps and kicks available should you want to change proportions."

The Douglas Coupland for SwitzerCultCreative collection is only available through SwitzerCultCreative, who hold the exclusive worldwide license to market and supply the range.
