SHOPPING AT ARTEMANO TORONTO

I had the fun experience this morning to take a tour through Artemano, a beautiful new to Toronto retailer in the Castelfield / Caledonia design hood in Toronto.

I am going to let the images speak for themselves- but I will say this place is beautiful. Handcrafted pieces, lots of reclaimed woods, live edge tables and the mix of metal and wood that is so on trend right now.

Pricing is what you would expect with handcrafted products of this quality and I was pleasantly surprised to find several small pieces for under $200 (side tables, wooden iPad stands, mirrors). Best surprise was that most products are available immediately from their warehouse on site- which is rare for the custom look of many of the products.

Visit Artemano at 698 Caledonia Rd. in Toronto.

WHERE I’LL BE SHOPPING THIS WEEKEND


This is my Groove chair from Urban Barn. I love it for many reasons- the fabric is gorgeous, the seat is comfortably firm, and it cost less than you would think for a custom piece of furniture (plus it only took a few weeks to get to me). It sits in my office (tour coming soon, I promise) and it’s the perfect spot for me to brainstorm and think through my designs.

So I was thrilled when an e-mail in my inbox announced Urban Barn is having a 15% off sale until this March 27 on custom furniture, rugs and mirrors. Go play designer with their wide collection of fabrics and finishes, all made right here in Canada (lots of eco options too). I’m thinking of getting a coordinating ottoman done for my office, and a custom mirror for my hallway. It’s too good to pass this sale up!
