The city’s hottest design destinations – organized by neighbourhood

“A chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous.” – Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), German-American architect.

From the downtown core to the ‘burbs and back, each neighbourhood has its own distinct mix of furniture and lighting shops, decor boutiques and kitchen and bath showrooms.

Our 2016 shopping guide gives you the scoop on the very best in modern and contemporary design.
