How are you doing today? We are very excited to tell you about the recent changes around here. For those of you who aren’t aware, we closed our downtown store on Lakeshore Road in January. While it was not an easy decision, we knew that we needed to focus on our core furnishings business, and continue to evolve and expand those product lines for our loyal customers and clients. We also appreciate how much our customers enjoyed grabbing a coffee downtown and coming in to browse through the store to find that perfect accessory or gift. So we have brought many of those unique products over to our showroom at 550 Speers Road, Unit #3.
Now known as the Market area, a dedicated space at the back of the store, you will find beautiful displays of our most popular home accessories, as well as some new lines we have acquired. We try our best to source locally so almost all of our suppliers are Canadian. We still carry some of your favourites including the Rue de Marli bath and body products, the Illume scented candles, and the Cedar Mountain hanging wall blocks. The Signs of Life prints by artist Elizabeth Mcqueen are also here – did you know that each of these prints represent symbols that celebrate the subtle signs of life around us….the start of a journey.
Some of our new products include organic cotton bath linens from Vandyck, with gorgeous banding detail, and our own signature House Warmings scented candles, which smell like you’ve just walked into the spa. They are hand poured, clean burning 100% soy candles. And as a tribute to our Greek owners heritage, our new olive oils and sea salts from Greece are a gourmet delight and make a perfect hostess gift. You don’t want to miss these! On our home furnishings side, we have brought in some beautiful pillows, with fresh patterns and florals, a new line of colourful soft bed linens from Maspar, unique accessories including silver and wood trays, vases of all shapes and sizes, gorgeous abstract prints from Celadon, and some unique wall decor ideas. Cottage season is fast approaching so we’ve also added some fabulous lanterns, decorative wood fish (Hello Muskoka!), cozy throws and wicker storage baskets. And that’s only a small sampling of what’s here!
Lastly, we’d love to hear from you. We will be blogging on a regular basis now (gulp, did I just say that!) and we would like to know what topics you are interested in, or what products you would like to see in our showroom. In addition to new product lines, we will be talking about design trends, things we love, news and events in town, sharing recipes, and getting to know our talented Design team. We hope this blog will become a bookmark on your computer that you visit often. So grab a coffee and come in to see what we’re all excited about!
