With an abundance of caution – and masks, sanitizer and space – shopping is coming back to Toronto
Finally – finally – showrooms are beginning to open. Naturally, it won’t be business as usual: patrons should be prepared wear masks, sanitize liberally and wait in line should the showroom they’re visiting be at capacity. But still, it’s a welcome improvement over the last eight weeks of blanket lockdown, and plus, many are offering sales, whether they’re on floor models, outdoor furniture or just across-the-board deals. Below, we’ve rounded up showrooms that are open and ready to do masked-face-to-masked-face business.
Klaus is ringing in its re-opening with floor model sales on furniture and lighting, making it the opportune moment to pick up labels like Moooi, e15 and, of course, Neinkämper. Also note that Klaus is currently open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
At some point during your extended stretch of time at home, it may have occurred to you that you would have liked to be spending it on a cushy, enveloping recliner. And with the return to not-quite normal comes the return of The Chesterfield Shop, which, as the name implies, has you covered for all things related to plush seating. Plus, the longtime retailer has plenty of in-store specials.
The sun is shining, but you should still be making a point of staying at home when able. Enter DWR, which is currently offering 15 per cent off on outdoor furniture, lighting and accessories, including from Hay, Knoll and DWR’s house line, so you can outfit a patio of your own.
AM Studio offers showpiece lighting from labels like Lasvit, Luceplan and Bomma (whose gorgeous Shibari pendant is shown above) that won’t just illuminate a space, but become the focal point in it. And if you’re looking to add a dreamy feel to your space, AM is offering 20 per cent off its fibreglass ball pendants.
JDV’s outdoor Round Two collection, which features armchairs, loungers, tables and other patio necessities in hardy teak and rope, is currently on sale for a massive 50 per cent off. And while Jardin is open to the public, they’re still offering private appointments, as well.
Statement-making pieces from Ligne Roset, Maison Corbeil, Must and others are now on offer sans tax. The deal is in-store only, so consider it your excuse to (safely) step out into the world.
