Pigment is owned by husband-and-wife duo Chad Anglin and Amy Paul. The shop opened in 2007 as an art gallery to showcase local artists. Amy even had her own studio in back and customers could peer in from a loft space. Art led in time to more developed vignettes, sofas, side tables and eventually smaller gifts items. With a heavy focus on the fundamentals of art and good design, thoughtful merchandising followed. Slowly but surely the store outgrew the first location in North Park and opened their second in Point Loma. Today the shop is recognized for design savvy gifts, flora and furniture. When approached about the transformation, the pair describe their disbelief. They just had no idea where they were headed when they opened nine years ago. It's been a wild ride.
