Established as a showcase for seductive, sophisticated furniture, AVENUE ROAD, designed by Yabu Pushelberg, is one of Canada’s premier venues for classic and contemporary furniture designs. The Toronto-based company offers a wide range of furniture, lighting and textiles from around the world, by legendary designers such as France’s Christophe Delcourt and British designer Eileen Grey.

The custom-designed Toronto showroom space is simple and symmetrical, providing a flawless backdrop for the brand’s worldly furniture collections. As if entering a modern art gallery, Yabu Pushelberg has superbly emphasized the natural light and the vertical nature of the space, which unfolds into a series of vignettes as one continues to walk through. Guests entering the luminous main gallery will find themselves amongst the works of Konstantin Grcic, Arco and Atelier Vierkant, each brilliantly displayed underneath the main skylight. The combination of lofted ceilings and streaming light provides the ideal setting for showcasing both the collections and the ultra-modern space. And the latter section of the showroom appears as a walkthrough window connecting to the director\’s office and the glass-encased boardroom.
