Crate and Barrel’s little sister is moving to town.
CB2, an urban furniture chain owned by the popular U.S.-based furniture giant, is opening its first Canadian store at Queen and Bathurst tomorrow.
CB2 operates 11 stores in big cities throughout the U.S., where it sells affordable and modern furniture and home accessories that are especially well suited to apartments, condos and lofts.
The chain’s merchandise includes sofas, desks, beds and other furniture, along with rugs, pillows, lighting fixtures, artwork and a huge variety of other accessories. Items are colourful and fun, and incorporate new trends of all kinds.
A condo-dweller myself, I’m personally very excited about the arrival of this new destination for modern furniture.
I’m a fan of Crate and Barrel, and I’m always looking for ways to brighten up my home. So I look forward to seeing what its sister chain has to offer.
The store will fit in well at Queen and Bathurst – a neighbourhood that’s already home to plenty of furniture and home accessory stores, like BLVD Interiors, Morba and Design Republic.
Once the Toronto store is up and running, Canada will get its second CB2 store in Vancouver next month. Live elsewhere? No problem. You can now shop remotely at CB2.com in Canadian dollars.
