Big News: We’re Now Open at Yonge + Eg!
We’re so excited that our newest outpost is officially open. Our new space proudly showcases our growing in-house lifestyle brand, Shared. As expected, the interior has been carefully curated with unexpected elements. The floors are created from custom Spanish tiles and Moroccan pattern concrete to create the illusion of area rugs, as pictured above. Our fixtures include an antique apothecary unit hosting a neon “DRUGS” sign, its sister neon “PRESCRIPTIONS” lives at the West Queen West flagship to connect the north outpost with our roots.
Look up! Our signature neon purple cross will hang on the building’s exterior letting our new friends + guests know that they’ve arrived at a cultural crossroads.

Design Mondays: Centre Pompidou Mobile
The French Ministry of Culture and the Centre Pompidou have started a collaboration that takes the traditional idea of a museum on the road. The colourful circus-like exterior contrasts with the traditional interior white space where the works are hosted. We hope that they make a trip across the pond!
