Toronto’s furniture scene has a new player. Artemano, a decade-old Quebec company that sells ethically- and sustainably-sourced furnishings, has opened its fifth location among the design stores of Caledonia Road. Owners Shimon Finkelstein and Eyal Shoam source handmade wood products in South and Southeast Asia and ship them to Canada for a final tweak to suit a Western design aesthetic. The resulting pieces, which highlight the wood’s grain, knots and indentations, are rustic, exotic and have minimalist shapes that belong in modern homes, not patchouli-scented hippie dens. Prices are a step up from West Elm and CB2, but the furniture is sturdier and the accessories more interesting.
