It's a little hard to believe that ten years have passed since we first opened the shop. One of our proudest accomplishments has been the relationships we have built, and the collaborations that have resulted. During Toronto's design week / DesignTO in January, we were fortunate to celebrate our achievements with many of our dear friends.
This event culminated in a show that displayed all of our collaborative works together in the gallery space. It was really incredible seeing it all together and how each piece plays off the others, despite different designers and materials.

Firewood Hutch and Wall Mounted Fire Tools Set by Thom Fougere, two newly launched pieces that expand of the original Fire Tools set.
A robust collection already, this year we decided to move into introducing some larger pieces.
The hutch tambour doors can be left open or closed, and even the back of the cabinet is beautifully finished. The day bed can have a partial or full cushion. The partial cushion is nice because it leaves a space for small objects.
The Tambour Cabinet in white oak by Thom Fougere. Another version, in a classic long dimension.
Daybed with full leather cushion by Thom Fougere.
Also introducing Yan and Douglas stools by Anderssen & Voll. Yan is still in production but Douglas is available in both white oil and black oil Douglas fir.

Last but not least is Oji Masanori's sandcast brass pepper mill. This piece has been 4 years in the making and we couldn't be happier with the results. We use it daily and looks great on the counter and on the table.
The pepper mill is made of Oji’s signature sand-cast brass, a process perfected by Futagami, a brass foundry in the city of Takaoka, on the coast of Japan’s Honshu Island. Its uniquely textured surface will oxidize, developing a rich patina with age. It features an adjustable ceramic burr grinding mechanism, suitable for pepper, salt, or spices.
