Our curiosity comes from our own idiosyncratic paths to design

About Us

Falken Reynolds is a Vancouver-based interior design practice. Our work centres on private homes and extends to retail, hospitality and product design. With a global perspective and a highly personal approach, we create inviting spaces shaped by the distinct lives and experiences of our clients.

Clean lines, craftsmanship and considered details are our hallmarks. We design environments to exude quiet confidence; a feeling achieved through a balance of seemingly disparate qualities—modernity and warmth, richness and restraint, sophistication and levity, intentionality and surprise.

We are deeply curious about each client—their culture, values, communities, travels. Exploring their story is how we discover the voice of each project, and translate it into an intimate and authentic home. Our clients embrace this inquisitive approach for the personality it brings into their daily spaces.

Principals

While our stories are different, our values are shared, bringing us together as partners and design collaborators.

Kelly Reynolds

Kelly Reynolds is no stranger to charting unconventional courses. Before design, he served the Royal Canadian Navy and Vancouver Police Department where he spent many shore leaves admiring architecture and design at various ports of call.

In 2004, Kelly enrolled in Interior Design at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, then co-founded a small interior design firm. After three successful years, he launched his namesake company in 2010. Kelly is fueled by a desire to give his clients what they’ve always wanted, but didn’t know how to get. Frequent travels keep his mind open and perspective fresh.

Chad Falkenberg

Chad Falkenberg was introduced to design amidst his Albertan farm boy upbringing, where he vividly recalls architectural cardboard models of their farm house and stacks of fabric samples his family’s interior designer friend kept in the basement. He left the homestead to acquire a degree in business, then worked abroad in Northern Europe, where he was exposed to the region’s Scandinavian architecture and design.

Chad later attended the Instituto Europeo di Design in Barcelona, where he explored Southern Europe’s whimsical aesthetic as typified by Antonio Gaudi. In 2007, Chad returned to Vancouver and apprenticed with acclaimed designer Robert Bailey.

Our Team
Jeff Liu

Originally from Boston, Jeff studied Industrial Design at Emily Carr University and Lund University. His fascination with interiors stems from exhibiting his products at the Stockholm Furniture Fair and Milan Design Week. His skills in the minute details of designing everything from eyewear to biomedical equipment give us an edge in resolving interesting (and often complicated) details that add just the right layering to our projects.

Mariana Kratka

Bringing the warmth and sunshine of Brazil to the studio, Mariana studied Architecture, Urbanism and Interior Design in Brasília and São Paulo. Her breadth of experience in modernist private homes, hospitality and multi-family developments is a critical ingredient to connecting the interiors to their contextual environment.

Wenyan Qian

A native of Shanghai, Wenyan studied Environmental Design at the University of Manitoba before moving to Vancouver. His intrigue with refined and sophisticated detailing was honed working with Italian kitchen brands Archlinea and Dada at Living Space. A love for photography and travelling have taken him to the world’s great cities and Canada’s deep rain forests.
