Crate and Barrel looking to open Toronto CB2 location

Crate and Barrel looking to open Toronto CB2 location

The rumours of U.S. decor retailer Crate and Barrel opening a CB2 store in Toronto began last Tuesday when Toronto realtor Andrew LaFleur tweeted that Bloor Street would be home to the design shop next year. (CB2 carries furniture that blends minimalist Italian design with mod ‘60s style, as well as sleek housewares for the kitchen and bath.) So far, there are no CB2s north of the border and only seven in the States, so budget-conscious decorators will be delighted to hear that the rumours are partly true.

“We’re actively looking at locations and hope to have a CB2 in Toronto by the end of 2010, but Bloor Street is not on the map,” said Crate and Barrel PR rep Bette Kahn. “Well, it’s on the map, just not ours. I can’t get into specifics about potential locations.”

We’re looking forward to scouting inexpensive furniture in a non-labyrinth setting. We’ll miss the Swedish meatballs, though.
