Did I ever tell you about my good friend Iris Havekes? This woman is going places! To be honest, I don’t even remember when or where I first met Iris. A couple of years ago, she was just there. At least that’s what it felt like. Iris is not only a kick-ass interior designer, trend forecaster, blogger and walking design encyclopedia. She’s also a great listener and always – and I mean always – an absolute joy to hang out with. So before I go on about her new C-More Concept Store, let me just say how thankful I am for our friendship.

Now, as if being just about perfect at everything wasn’t enough, Iris went ahead and opened her first shop together with her friend Ynske. And needless to say, I was there for the opening. The C-More Concept Store is part of the Honig Complex in the picturesque town of Nijmegen – definitely a destination to check out on a daytrip from Amsterdam or Rotterdam. And now that it has the hottest design concept store in the Netherlands, you really don’t have any excuse to not just jump on the first train to see more at C-More. If you do, please make sure to give my regards to Iris and tell her…it’s all happening! 

C-More Concept Store…it’s all happening for my friend Iris!

BANG! And they’re open!
