2017 – It’s a wrap!

Hard to believe it, but 2018 is just around the corner. Looking back at 2017, there was never a dull moment! Read on for the highlights of the year.

We kicked off 2017 launching a super-successful accessories line at the Spring Gift Fair in Toronto. We showcased some of our new wall décor pieces, including:

Canvas wall decor, Style In Form, Vancouver
Pineapple wall decor Style In Form

We expanded our upholstery line for chairs and sofas, and totally upped our game with the dining chairs, notably these beauties:

We did the BC Home & Garden show in February where we partnered with Kendall Ansell Interiors to decorate the container home. In April Allison headed to India where she sourced poufs, macrame and textiles for our Bohemian collection:

 

The Canadian Furniture show in May was our best-ever! We officially launched our Herringbone line, and to tremendous applause! We followed that show with the Fall Gift Fair, showcasing our uber-popular and absolutely gorgeous September coffee table and launching our stunning mid-century modern Surface collection – which was also incredibly well-received.

Allison went on another buying trip in the fall where she sourced GORGEOUS velvets in jewel tones (get ready for our Ethan swivel chair in new colours for 2018 – Ink Blue, a Deep Green and a Smoke Grey).

She also finally found the elusive and well-priced extension dining table called Slide (2 finishes each 3 in 1 size), a fantastic Rattan line for spring 2018, ceramics, and lots and lots of lighting options. (You asked, we answered!)

We went on a bit of a hiring spree (there’s just no stopping us!) in 2017, when the fabulous Nancy came on board, as well as  Drew, Raymond, and AJ in the Warehouse, Stephanie for social media, our Inventory Planner Shannon, and Karen to help source accessories. We closed out the year with a packed Open House where we showcased the new ceramics, our Bohemian line, Rattan pieces, rugs, lighting and new artwork, volunteered again at Aunt Leah’s (Nat and Marcus from Mantis Delivery chipped in to help!), and celebrated our close-knit team and furry friends with a staff holiday luncheon at the showroom. Can you tell this year totally tuckered out Frank and Oliver?

From all of us to all of you, have a wonderful New Year, and we’ll see you in 2018!
