Hollace Cluny: Sophisticated Toronto Design Store
Hollace Cluny, fine design 160 Pears Avenue Suite 203 Toronto
Hollace Cluny made its debut as an eclectic design store roughly 20 years ago and had their first storefront location on Yonge Street at Roxborough Street. After establishing a strong client base, they relocated to their current space at Pears Avenue a few years ago in order to gain a larger showroom that better displays the many products and lines that they carry.
Hollace Cluny has always been a favourite of mine as they have a healthy mix of established design companies including Knoll, Carl Hansen & Son, Bocci and De La Espada, along with home-grown talent such as Martha Sturdy, a Canadian designer that works with resin to create beautiful bowls and tables. Martha Sturdy bowls make excellent housewarming gifts!
I recently purchased some unique Walter G cushions at Hollace Cluny. Walter G is a company owned by two young Australian designers who have fresh, textured textiles with an airy, coastal feel to them. There’s nothing like new pillows and cushions to instantly refresh a room! Hollace Cluny also carries a wonderful assortment of unique ceramic accessories that make a perfect housewarming or wedding gift.
This mainstay of the Toronto design industry carries much more than accessories, though. You’ll also find contemporary lighting, outdoor furniture, storage units, office pieces, bedroom furniture and much more.
I was originally disappointed that this gem of a store had relocated as I loved the Yonge and Roxborough location, but after visiting the new space it is clear to me the new location works well for them. It is open, bright and spacious and there is always a well-informed staff member happy to assist you. It is definitely worth checking out.
