Editor’s Picks:

Two top showrooms that always impress


Y & Co.
Can’t afford a new sofa this year? Spring for some fresh cushions instead. This textile boutique’s boldly-patterned fabrics are a perfect way to convey your unique personality through your decor. Floral rugs and retro-mod wallpaper offerings are just as appealing.


Torp Inc.
This bright, open concept space is an ode to the clean lines and understated elegance characteristic of Scandinavian and Danish design. Strolling through the showroom, it’s easy to fall in love with the aesthetic. Sophisticated seating by Fritz Hansen and gorgeous silverware by Georg Jensen are mixed in with a Mondrian-esque shelving system and playful accessories by youthful brand Muuto. Energy-efficient custom windows and doors favoured by such architects as Torp’s upstairs neighbour Taylor Smyth are another specialty.
