The Canadian Home Furnishings Market 2013 Wrap Up

This years TCHFM was another resounding success! It was great to be in Toronto to catch up with old friends, meet some exciting new ones (Maison Corbeil, Casalife, Osmond’s Furniture) and see what our fellow exhibitors were showcasing for 2013. TCHFM remains an essential stop on our industry trade shows list.

IMG_0018 (Large) Our gorgeous booth was expertly staged (special thanks to Kora J. Pridy, our resident design consultant) to highlight and showcase many of the dynamic pieces that make up our new collections. The overall consensus and feedback received was wonderfully positive and the reaction to a couple of our latest additions was, in a word, overwhelming!

tullum chair yellowJournalist and blogger extraordinaire Chantal Lapointe chose our Tulum Chairs as a Market Must-Have!  An award designed to recognize and highlight the very best that TCHFM exhibitors have to offer, Chantal said of our new retro inspired chairs, “the finish reminds me of the lawn chairs we had growing up. Completely weather-proof and irresistibly comfortable. A must try!” Thanks for the recognition Chantal!  The vibrant yellow and classic white chairs, perfect for indoors or out, were such a big hit we have already ordered a new container to fill the demand. Wouldn’t it be fun if they came in a multitude of colours?  Stay tuned!

She showed the stool turned on its side as a rustic table and talked about its versatility and natural beauty, “you can feel the weight of this, it’s so well made,” and “in design it’s a rule of opposites. If you have something that is really rustic put it with something modern.” Our entire Natura Collection was a big hit at the show. We are excited to announce that the Kotak Stool will soon be available in a round version and that a coffee table in a similar style is on the horizon as well.

Other big hits at TCHFM included our super chic Nixon Chairs, our industrial styled Swirl Stools and Brava Crank Table and the hyper modern Stitch Coffee Table.

TCHFM is the place where the Canadian Furniture Industry gathers to showcase it’s excellence and renown and the 2013 show was no exception.  We are excited to be a part of such a great event and look forward to exhibiting again next year. Thanks to everyone who dropped by our booth, to say hello, to peruse our new collections or to place an order.
