"Every season I look for inspiration from the world around me. As my 60th birthday approaches, I find myself thinking back to my first memories of moving to Seattle in 1962.
Nostalgia is a powerful motivator and I want to take our customers down memory lane while honoring the spirit of the 1962 World's Fair. The fair focused on modern science, space exploration, and a progressive future, wrapped up in the broad concept of the exposition. It would prove to be a defining moment in the history of the city and put Seattle on the world's stage.
We recognize The Century 21 Exposition's place in reshaping the city of Seattle. Fifty-six years later, the Space Needle is still the symbol of our city and is being renovated by some of today's most renowned architects, Tom Kundig and the Howard S. Wright family, both in the Baby & Company community.
It's apparent by what surrounds us today that Seattle has become the city of "the future", the one dreamt up by visionaries in 1962. It's the same driving forces that were on display at the World's Fair that continue to put Seattle on the map. We'd like to introduce you to these visionaries and celebrate those who have helped shape the NW style, then and now." - Jill Donnelly, Owner, CEO, Buyer
