Shop update

March 20th, 2011

It’s Sunday afternoon, and it’s another beautiful day in Toronto. The morning light was so nice we thought this was the perfect chance to share a few new items we have in the store.

The “Kuksa” cups from Finland are back in stock in three styles. They are hand carved from arctic birch burl and each come with a beautiful reindeer leather tie ($65 / $75 / $85).

The silhouette flower vase on the right is designed by Y. Tokuda and is made in Japan ($79). It’s so nice to have a bit of spring in the shop!

This is a good opportunity to let you know we are extending our 5% donation program to include all products from Japan (10% for Oji/Ono products).

We also are now carrying the Scandia collection by Hans Brattrud (1957). They are extremely comfortable and even more beautiful in person. The Scandia chairs have only recently been put back into production with the help of Fjord Fiesta–there was a terrible factory fire 40 years ago that ceased all production of these beautiful chairs. Hans Brattrud is still alive today and was a big part in getting the chairs back to the same standard and specifications of the original pieces.

The shelves are stacked with some pretty beautiful things right now!

You should definitely find time to visit the Junction this summer, now that the sun is out there is a new energy here, new shops opening up, and in June (hopefully) we will even have a new microbrewery and restaurant.

  3. that flower vase is stunning? Is it available online?

  4. Dear Sundeep,

    Everything you see in the shop can be ordered and shipped. We are in the process of making our website have a self check-out service, but we’re still weeks away from launching that. We can take orders over the phone or email.

  7. When we visited Sweden this summer,my seven year old son decided he would start collecting Dala Horses. The black and white ones would be a perfect modern addition to his collection.

  8. You know, I’ve had an outline vase in a closet for years now and haven’t grown to like it (I’ve never even opened the box!), but seeing it in these photos makes me want to give it a try.
