EQ3 opens its Liberty Village location
At the opening of EQ3’s new store in Liberty Village, servers passed out mini beaver tails and cocktails made from Canadian Club and maple syrup (lest anyone not already know the company is Canadian). The Winnipeg-based furniture maker’s second Toronto store (its first remains open on King Street East) spans two floors in a 100-year-old building on Hanna Avenue. Expect EQ3’s own lines of furniture and home accessories, a selection from brands like Herman Miller and Alessi and a collection done in collaboration with Marimekko, the Finnish design house known for its cheerful, colourful prints (shoppers can even have their EQ3 furniture upholstered in Marimekko textiles). We imagine West Elm and Casalife aren’t exactly thrilled about the new arrival, but the rampant development in the area should provide enough furniture shoppers to go around.
