Welcome Pistolnik Designs

Ariana Poch, owner of Pistolnik Designs

Ariana Poch, owner of Pistolnik Designs, has an eye and a passion for the fun, the bright, and the whimsical in home decor. Ariana is a furniture upholsterer – chairs, couches, cushions – and worked for five years for a company working on orders as they came in. Now she is flipping this upside down. She’s buying funky, retro furniture on Kijiji (and via other sources), refinishing and reupholstering to her taste, and selling in her new shop! For an artsy, theatre-loving city, this is the perfect addition! 

Ariana also makes bright and eclectic cushions, from regular throw pillows to oversized for lounging closer to the floor. Her 7-year-old son is her “product tester” and he will tell you these items are perfect for rolling around on and watching your favourite tv show! 

Ariana’s workshop is the back of her shop, where you will find a large cutting table, loads of upholstery material and a couple of industrial-strength sewing machines. Around town, the result of her talents is the Braai House bench seating and the banquettes at St Mary’s Gold Club.

Enjoy this tour of her fabulous store.
Welcome to Downtown Stratford, Ariana!
