From time to time, I get asked where do I shop, so here is just a few of scandi and modern stores beside IKEA. Common denominator: European influence. Here’s my styling guide of European inspired Stores in Ontario.
Furniture styling guide
Proudly Canadian, and mostly made in Canada , this Winnipeg based company, have its heart actually in Europe (its founder grow up there). The furniture design pays tribute to classics like Muuto and clearly draws inspiration from Scandinavian design. EQ3+ also sources classics like Herman Miller, Alessi, Panton and more. Apart from these, affordable and modern.
230 Adelaide St E, Toronto ON If you, like me, are in a total love with Danish design, then this is your next destination. Only 3 stores in Canada, but the company is present in 50 countries all over the world and is wildly known for creating truly what Denmark is known for.
3521 Wyecroft Rd, Oakville ON Quebec based, this retail chain is present all over the country. It’s design resembles Danish Bloomingville and the prices are really great! Beloved by condo owners and condo home stagers.
200A-2500 Barton St E, Hamilton ON L8E 4A2 Surprised? Danish low-cost chain might not be the highest quality, but some of the pieces might come handy when you’re staging and looking for a inexpensive and easy solutions. Hackers paradise.
3443 Fairview St, Burlington ON Good place to score some modern pieces on sale. Style? Mainly rough luxe and industrial, with pieces from Restoration Hardware. So that’s a place were you find these metal suitcase style coffee tables and punch bag, you can put on the shelf, aka conversation starters.
606-13850 Steeles Ave W, Halton Hills French industrial and luxurious, with store in downtown Toronto and Mississauga. I usually order online though. Nice place to find cute chairs in OK price during sale.
