Also on hand: Bjarke In­gels Group’s wall-mounted Al­pha­bet of Light sys­tem of il­lu­mi­nated let­ters and num­bers that spell out the ABCS – or a cus­tom note to self – in graphic script. 5 MILL ST 416 628 6718 ARTEMIDE.CA

5 Bergo De­signs

Boast­ing home ac­ces­sories from top Euro­pean man­u­fac­tur­ers, Bergo of­fers an eclec­tic ar­ray of in­ter­na­tional de­sign. Among a med­ley of ob­jects from New York City’s Areaware is the Cube­bot, a Ja­panese-in­spired puz­zle that con­verts from an in­nocu­ous cube into a robot; the mini-trans­former can hold dif­fer­ent poses thanks to its rub­ber-band joints. Mean­while, Tom Dixon’s Brew col­lec­tion con­tains a shiny PVD stove­top es­presso maker with an ex­ag­ger­ated han­dle – an un­likely mar­riage be­tween art deco ge­ome­tries and Blade Run­ner’s fu­tur­is­tic aes­thetic. 28 TANK HOUSE LN 416 861 1821 BERGODESIGNS.CA

6 Bilt­more Domi­cile

BD’S eclec­tic Dis­tillery Dis­trict show­room feels a lit­tle like an at­tic full of trea­sures – al­beit stylish trea­sures of im­pec­ca­ble crafts­man­ship. The three-decade-old fam­ily busi­ness spe­cial­izes in be­spoke so­fas hand­made in their Mon­treal shop with kiln-dried maple frames and avail­able in an ar­ray of up­hol­stery op­tions and cush­ion fills. The in­ven­tory – and made-to-or­der items – in­cludes tra­di­tional loveseats and con­tem­po­rary sec­tion­als, plus home ac­cents from lo­cal de­sign­ers and an­tique and vin­tage finds. Lux­u­ri­ous cus­tom beds – like Tufted, a wing­back with a soar­ing vel­vet headrest – are de­light­fully in­dul­gent. 39 PAR­LIA­MENT ST 416 360 7632 BILTMOREFURNITURE.COM

7 Bo­con­cept

Den­mark’s largest fur­ni­ture re­tailer seam­lessly blends func­tion­al­ity and modern lux­ury in res­i­den­tial sta­ples at an af­ford­able price point, of­fer­ing plenty of ways to recre­ate the Copen­hagen look at home. The shapely Ade­laide Sofa, de­signed by Hen­rik Ped­er­sen, looks strik­ing in touch­able mid­night-blue felt up­hol­stery and clas­sic ta­pered oak legs with a modern es­presso-tinted fin­ish. An­other won­der per­fect for ur­ban­ites is the in­con­spic­u­ous Xtra ot­toman, which mirac­u­lously un­folds to re­veal a twin-style guest bed or added seat­ing. 230 ADE­LAIDE ST E 647 352 8802 BO­CON­CEPT.CA

8 Bulthaup Toronto

Bulthaup’s rai­son d’être is kitchen sys­tems cus­tom­ized to per­fec­tion. The Ger­man man­u­fac­turer’s b1 has birch in­te­ri­ors and re­cessed grips; b2 matches cab­i­nets and a work­bench with in­te­grated cook­top and sink; while b3 fea­tures float­ing cab­i­netry, dis­creet ap­pli­ances and in­no­va­tive drawer or­ga­ni­za­tion. The just-launched b Soli­taire por­ta­ble shelv­ing con­cept can be nearly end­lessly per­son­al­ized with shelves, open grids and oak pull-out trays, ta­bles and benches; we love it as a dis­play case with a glass top. Co­or­di­nat­ing ta­bles and a se­lec­tion of seat­ing from Carl Hansen & Søn carry the look from the cucina into the din­ing room. 280 KING ST E 416 361 9005 TORONTO.BULTHAUP.COM

9 Cal­li­garis

This Ital­ian man­u­fac­turer’s forte is so­phis­ti­cated fur­nish­ings that ex­ude youth and el­e­gance. Take, for in­stance, the Basil chair up­hol­stered in linger-af­ter­dinner leather on a va­ri­ety of base op­tions, from swiv­el­ling pedestal to bar-height legs. An­other new ar­rival, co­in­cid­ing with the launch of three new ce­ramic fin­ishes, is the hy­per­bolic Vor­tex din­ing ta­ble, fea­tur­ing a pow­der-coated base rem­i­nis­cent of a fla­menco dancer’s twirling skirt. Many of­fer­ings are de­signed with dura­bil­ity in mind; the self-heal­ing Phoenix sur­face on its ta­bles mirac­u­lously bonds back to­gether af­ter be­ing scratched. 170 KING ST E 416 504 2959 (ALSO: IM­PROVE CANADA, 7250 KEELE ST, STE #304 905 876 1206) CALLIGARISTORONTO.CA

All the brand’s lines are on dis­play in kitchen and bath vi­gnettes, in­clud­ing the new Car­rick col­lec­tion in mod­ish con­crete grey, as well as five calm­ing ad­di­tions to the Brit­tan­icca Warm and Brit­tan­icca Gold ranges, fea­tur­ing large vein­ing in warm and gold tones. 91 PAR­LIA­MENT ST 416 363 8801 CAMBRIACANADA.COM

11 De­sign Within Reach

Re­fined modern clas­sics pop against icy-white walls in this lofty space. Au­then­tic li­censed fur­nish­ings from Knoll and Cassina are in­ter­spersed among DWR’S ex­clu­sive house de­signs, in­clud­ing the ever-pop­u­lar Story Book­case by Afte­room, which art­fully and com­pactly dis­plays lit­er­a­ture in hor­i­zon­tal stacks. The Nel­son Thin Edge bed (de­signed by Ge­orge Nel­son for Her­man Miller) with a breezy cane-pan­elled headrest is per­fect for the beach house and comes with two base op­tions: ta­pered legs or a steel H-frame. We also love the state­ment-mak­ing Sen me­dia unit by Ibon Ar­riz­a­bal­aga in char­coal black and the pink un­der­skirt on Louis Poulsen’s PH5 pen­dant lamp. 214 KING ST E 416 977 4003 DWR.COM

12 Dom In­te­ri­ors

DI’S cos­mopoli­tan kitchens, bath­rooms and home fur­nish­ings never com­pro­mise on style. Ri­made­sio’s wall sys­tems and slid­ing or swing doors in clear or mir­rored glass and Lema’s slick clos­ets are re­fined down to the small­est de­tail. Ce­sar’s made-in-italy Unit kitchen feels lighter than air, thanks to slen­der matte alu­minum legs (with luxe bronze socks), which raise the is­land above floor level. On lazy morn­ings, Agape’s Bjhon 1 wash­basin – a sim­ple ves­sel set atop a ta­pered col­umn – is a beau­ti­ful rea­son to spring out of bed. 58 BERKE­LEY ST 416 364 6477 DOMINTERIORS.COM

Two col­lec­tions – tra­di­tional Les Nou­veaux Clas­siques and modern Les Con­tem­po­rains – boast such stun­ners as the cur­va­ceous Tan­gram sofa and Mah Jong mod­u­lar seat­ing sys­tem, clad in graphic Mis­soni Home pat­terns. Nes­tled in the in­dented seat of the Mac­aron lounge chair is a cir­cu­lar back­rest/cush­ion, re­sem­bling the ir­re­sistible French dessert. Pan­tone’s colour of the year en­livens the Bub­ble sofa, which looks like a clus­ter of pur­ple grapes, while rugs from Mis­soni Home and Jean Paul Gaultier add piz­zazz. 101 PAR­LIA­MENT ST 416 366 3273 ROCHE-BOBOIS.COM

33 Savoia Canada

Strips of six-mil­lime­tre-thick Cala­catta Stat­u­ario mar­ble-look porce­lain tile by Fian­dre, slen­der enough to shine a light through, are dis­played like shards of po­lar ice in the win­dow of this gleam­ing shrine to in­no­va­tive ar­chi­tec­tural sur­faces. Premium White, with its brush-stroke soft vein­ing, is a favourite, while porce­lain tiles from the Bois Ur­baine col­lec­tion mimic the grain of wood with­out the main­te­nance. On the con­tem­po­rary end of the spec­trum, Cin­der Resin in light grey is a dead ringer for trendy con­crete. 145 KING ST E 416 640 7654 (ALSO: 6060 BURN­SIDE CRT, UNIT #3 905 362 9965) SAVOIA.COM

Wolf’s premium kitchen ap­pli­ances – in­clud­ing ranges and cook­tops that fea­ture in­no­va­tive pop-up down­drafts – look great along­side Sub-zero’s built-in, in­te­grated or un­der-the-counter fridges and wine-stor­age units.

39 Varas­mus

In its Moss Park show­room, Ot­tawa-based Varas­mus shows off its stylish spe­cialty: kitchens with seam­less coun­ter­tops fash­ioned from a sin­gle piece of stain­less steel, which boast such rig­or­ous de­tails as flush-in­stalled in­duc­tion cook­tops and re­cessed sinks with tidy fit­ted cut­ting boards.
