Landon Dix

Landon Dix is an interior designer, working between Vancouver and The Sunshine Coast. His roots in design were formed from crafting home-wares, that eventually stemmed the creation of Landon Dix Design Studio. A multi-discipline design practice, that oversees residential and commercial projects from conception to completion, down to the finest technical detail. He has always been influenced by his surroundings; raised on the forest's edge on the North Shore, and logging countless hours on a boat since childhood. His upbringing motivates him to create a unique, home-grown aesthetic, with the task of bringing global design trends and innovations to the west coast.
