Do Design on Dundas West

Do Design

We are very excited to be part of Do Design this year, which is taking place along Dundas West between Bathurst & Grace. Restaurants, shops and galleries all have displays featuring local contemporary designers. Each shop will have a small sign describing the display and the artist.

Bundle up, get some coffee or hot chocolate and come venture around the neighbourhood!

Our shop is featuring Derek McLeod’s Flamecut Side Table, which is made from steel and plated in copper. Beautiful, and apparently very heavy (not that I would know as I did not move it in…).

Hope to see you around the neighbourhood this weekend!

Wonder Pens in Toronto Star!

A couple of weeks ago, a writer from The Grid came to talk to us about the shop, and we were thrilled to be featured on their website. However, the best came when the Toronto Star linked up to the article, and published it in their print edition newspaper on Friday, August 9th!

I’d been hoping they would also put it up on their website so I could just link the article, but it doesn’t seem like that is going to happen. Here is a photo and a slightly larger image if you’d like to read about us!

We have been surprised and overwhelmed by the blogs and press we’ve been getting – it has been wonderful. I guess people are really becoming more interested in picking up a pen to write with once in a while!
