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: Vibrant + Fun Tiles
Whoever said tiles had to be plain was seriously mistaken! Just looking at these works of art make our feet smile at the thought of walking on them. Crafted by Popham Design, these tiles make us long for a home in Morocco to call our own. Until then, someone pass the hummus.
