Toronto, ON (Vocus) April 22, 2010
Following suit of fellow luxury brands such as Gucci, Chanel, and Prada, studio b joins the current trend in pop-up retail by opening a temporary showroom in North Toronto at 1860 Bayview Ave.
Opening today, the showroom will be there for only 5 months, focusing on outdoor furniture and closing before fall. Spread over 5,000 square feet, the specialty pop-up store will showcase the best of studio b’s outdoor collections such as DEDON, Brown Jordan, Sifas, and Kartell. The location has a truly authentic showroom feel as it was previously a landmark automotive showroom. Inside, the theme of summer continues with a lounge backyard atmosphere, emphasized by pieces such as the iconic Orbit by DEDON, the Louis Ghost Chair by Kartell, and the Romeo and Juliet bench by Extremis. This is the first time that all luxury outdoor brands have been showcased in one space.
“With summer approaching, it’s a perfect time to showcase our coveted outdoor brands” states Jennifer Richardson, vice-president. “We pop up just in time for summer with our outdoor collections”. President and owner of studio b, David Beaton shares “We are excited to have the world’s best luxury brands in outdoor furniture featured together in such a great neighbourhood.”
