About Design District Access
Design District Access opened its doors in 2010 and is an all-encompassing destination for interior design located in Victoria. The design library includes the latest in tile, vinyl, laminate, hardwood, fabric, hardware, wallpaper, trims, lighting, décor, furniture and blinds – everything you need to complete residential or commercial projects. New samples arrive each week to offer clients the best and most current interior design products available in the marketplace.
We order products available only to distributors, connecting you with top designer brands. Browse through our product brand list, fill out an order form, and gain access to these renowned products. Need a quote? We will provide you with one for any product you find through our site.
We are well connected within the design industry with professionals for flooring, tile, furniture, wallpaper and window treatments. We also work with professional delivery companies to have your pieces delivered, unpacked and placed in your home.
Whether it is a small renovation, a new build or a commercial project, the team at Design District Access will work with you to bring your project to its best potential. DDA works with students and graduates of Vancouver Island University School of Interior Design and the Pacific Design Academy by offering product knowledge, design courses, job placement, and work/volunteer experience within the community. The design centre also provides IDIBC credited product expos and product knowledge seminars to encourage growth and continued education for the design community.
“Our friends at DDA work hard to make our job easier ! Expert ideas, friendly staff, outstanding service and support from source to delivery. Thank you for being a key piece to our business success.”
“Design district has totally changed my business. Not only do I not need to keep a resource library anymore, but they are always there to help me with whatever project I have. They save me time, money, and are great at keeping me current with their newsletters and showing me new products whenever I pop in. I love that I can come in and tell them what I’m looking for and they help me find it, order it, track it, check it when it comes in, and even help me carry samples to my car!”

“I have been working with the Design District team for several years. My business focus is on real estate building and development and I tend to be short on time. Two things keep me coming back to the Studio, their range of products and their excellent customer service both of which make my experience productive and efficient. It is really a place where you can fit all the pieces of a new home together quickly and in real time be able to visualize all the elements. I always can rely on the design gang for helpful advice, options, product information, lots of collaboration and of course some laughs and the odd chocolate!”
“Design District Access quite simply helps me to be a better designer. With their incredible selection of products I am able to open my clients up to style possibilities that they didn’t even know existed in Victoria. There is no other source that compares for designer wall paper, exclusive furniture lines and of course the fabric!! I love sourcing products with them for the style and selection and I keep coming back because they’re so helpful, so fun to work with and so genuinely supportive of my design business.”
“The team at Design District have enhanced, supported and expanded my business through their expertise, enthusiasm and level of service they provide every single day. They do what they love and clearly love what they do! I am excited and very thankful to have them as part of my expert team on client projects.”
“Thank you for all that you have done to help support us in providing quality products and excellent service to us and to our clients.
We have come to rely on your large resource library of products and it keeps expanding. Your expertise and commitment to service has saved our clients hours and us in tracking down and obtaining samples and in placing and following up on orders. Questions asked get a quick and knowledgeable response. And, you efficiently and effectively provide solutions to the occasional and inevitable blips that show up in the complex process of delivering the product to the client.
We send builders and clients to you with confidence, knowing that they will be given excellent service. You are a great resource to the design community in Victoria and we are so glad that you are here.”

“I love visiting the Design District Access for many reasons… one of those being the friendly and knowledgeable staff! Design District Access always has the most up-to-date product selection. They can help you navigate their vast array of product for all aspects of your project, whether it be flooring, wallpaper, fabric, and everything in between.”
We love being a part of the wonderful community here in Victoria, BC.
We strive to be as involved with the community as possible. On September 30th, 2016, we hosted a Donation Drive for Habitat for Humanity Restore, where we collected unused design and build materials from the community and design industry. The news of our event spread far and wide, and we received donations from all over Victoria!
We’d like to thank everyone who participated in this event for a great cause.
