Knot Seating Object by Yvonne Ip

“Made of flexible, fiber material, it’s literally a knot of industrial felt, sliced into strips and wrestled into a knot. It usually takes several attempt to tie it. Kids love it; they run halfway across the store just to leap on it.” -- Julie Nicholson


Founders: Shaun Moore and Julie Nicholson

Opening Date: 2005

Addresses: 867 Dundas Street West, Toronto

Phone: (416) 607-6384

What’s It All About: Shaun Moore and Julie Nicholson both moved in art and design circles in Toronto, having worked overseas in Europe, and saw a lot of local Canadian designers who were being underserved. They decided to stop complaining about the fact that Toronto didn’t have a design store promoting these local designers and opened one themselves in 2005 on Dundas street. Everything they sell in the store (except for, as Moore pointed out, a hand-tufted rug), is Canadian made.

Philosophy: “We follow our aesthetic in terms of the furniture and pieces we choose, things that speak to a knowledge of tradition, a knowledge of traditional skills and innovation.” -- Julie Nicholson
