A Note from Designlines


Things aren’t exactly normal, but at least we’re isolating together

Well, this is weird, am I right? Here we are, in a city full of design – available to touch, see, buy and learn about – and, since we’re isolating, it’s pretty much shut down. But luckily the world is still wide open, online.

At Designlines, we are working remotely on a number of projects to keep the information and inspiration flowing to our friends in the GTA. As we all continue to work from home, it’s an opportune time to consider our spaces, how to better them, and to learn where we can get a helping hand. And so, we continue to monitor which of our favourite retailers are still operating online and how they’re handling shipping. This is news we will pass on to you as shopping as local as possible is more important than ever.

On top of this, we will be producing more inspiring content daily, pulling from our archives as well as from this city’s talented pool of makers and design professionals. And as we work away on the next issue – the ever popular Renos Issue – we are also working on getting the digital edition of the most current issue – Small Spaces – up and available. So, please do watch this space (and our social media platforms) as we roll out more design content than ever. We’re in this together, design friends. Stay safe, be well.

P.S. To our friends in design and retail, please don’t hesitate to reach out via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or by email to let us know if and how you are operating. We’re here to support local businesses like yours!

In the 2024 Spring/Summer Issue of Designlines, we focus on New Builds and “celebrate the profound impact of creating something new, not just as an architectural endeavour but as a testament to laying down roots and shaping the very essence of our city’s identity,” editor-in-chief Joseph Cicerone writes.
