Only a few months after opening its doors, Voss Art + Home already has a distinct, unique style. The focus is on art, home, jewelry and baby items. In the heart of Boulder, this lifestyle store has something special for everyone, from exclusive art to custom furniture to home décor accessories imported from over seas.
During the afternoon when I stopped in to meet with co-owner and artist Sondra Voss, the space was in the middle of an art installation. Sizable, gorgeous paintings were being carried in and moved about. Sondra commented the store is also in a continual state of renewal; the front windows and door space transform every two weeks or so and the inventory changes often. Between the cozy chairs, handmade jewelry and one-of-a-kind art, one could spend quite a bit of time wandering, searching and combing through this life-sized treasure chest. As an artist who also does interior design work, Sondra Voss and her husband, Greg, pooled together all of their talents to launch the store. Sondra’s paintings can be found at The Ritz Carlton, senators’ offices, hospitals, on the showroom floor and more. She keeps a painting studio in the back to help to help maximize time and space. Greg handles the finances. They travel around the world to collect goods at antique stores and auctions to bring back; items in the store are a collection of vintage, fair trade and often from other vendors not already found in the Boulder area. All artwork is created by Colorado artists.
“We have items starting at $2 up to $12,000,” states Sondra.
POP UP SHOP The Pop Up Shop, which is essentially a store within a store, rotates vendors every two weeks. The artisans in the showroom are selected to briefly offer a line that is not otherwise available at VOSS. The Pop Up Shop compliments the curated collection, but with a twist.
“It’s always fresh, always changing and is compatible in nature to what the store already sells.” says Voss. “It really exposes our clients to artists that maybe wouldn’t normally be in the store.”
HOME INSTALLATION Voss provides the complimentary use of an art installer so clients can have pieces delivered and installed to ensure it’s a good fit before a full commitment. It also offers free local delivery on all furniture and art in Boulder. VOSS Art + Home may very well be a lifestyle store, but it’s also an experience. A boutique with curated goods with stories behind them of where they came from and how they were crafted. I must admit, I left wanting one of everything.
