Vancouver native Paul Cathers brings his determined nature to the management and curation of his successful design firm, furniture store and rug gallery. Before the conception of Cathers Home, Cathers traveled the world, working in the fashion industry. He now applies this global cultural exposure to his passion for design and interiors in a way that both influences and enriches Cathers Home’s exciting collection of furniture and rugs. When Cathers isn’t at his business, he can be found with his family, pursuing his favorite athletic endeavors or traveling the world. We sat down with Cathers to hear more about his interior visions.

What are your favorite things to keep you busy when not designing homes? I love spending quality time outdoors with my three sons, adventurous daughter and beautiful fiancee. We love exploring nature and traveling the world together.
Where are you most inspired in Basalt? I find inspiration in many places in Basalt, but the rivers, lakes and mountains most inspire me. The serene beauty of these natural landscapes fuels my creativity. Additionally, I am inspired every day when I walk into our beautiful showroom and see the stunning displays.

What is your favorite season in Aspen? My favorite season in Aspen is winter, although summers are my golden time to spend more outdoors than indoors. I love the magical atmosphere created by the snow-covered mountains during winter, but the warmer months allow for more outdoor activities and exploration.
