Guess what?! I was part of the Exclusive CANVAS Showroom Tour media invites to attend a guided tour of the new Canadian Tire CANVAS showroom last week in Toronto. Isn’t that exciting!! For those of you that aren’t familiar with CANVAS, it is the home decor and furniture line offered online and in your local Canadian Tire store. It ain’t your grandpa’s Canadian Tire anymore! The showroom is literally a hop, skip and a jump from their location at 839 Yonge Street. It’s open to the public and set up so you can browse around without being bombarded by a ton of stock. It’s more of an intimate store where you can see the scale, quality and practicality of all the home goods.
The tour started with our graceful and knowledgeable host, Tracy Platt, who is the Brand Design and Development Manager greeting us at the door. She took us through each space and highlighted all the new items that have been added to the line this season. There was something to see at every turn. The Colby rug under the round dining table and the gold Harlowe chandelier are what caught my eye right away and drew me into the space. She went on to tell us about the new futon they introduced and how storage was at top of mind when designing all of their latest products. For example, the Bradley Storage Cube does double duty, not only is it additional storage in any space but it also acts as a small coffee table, an extra seat, and magazine or remote holder. I noticed that all the pieces were budget friendly, had a modern aesthetic and were extremely versatile!I also want to point out that she mentioned that all the light fixtures were design by folks right here in Canada. When I heard that I was really impressed because they are totally on trend, accessible and affordable. And if you know me personally you know I have a “thing” for rugs and light fixtures. In the photos you will also get a chance to see some of the CANVAS Christmas line available in store now.
Since going on the tour I have perused all the products online and in store. I have my eye on the Streeter Storage Ottoman to store the endless amount of accent pillow covers I own (not pictured). Their site is very user friendly and provides a stock quantity at your closest location, it’s really great. Also, they offer free pick up in your local store if you purchase something online. Bravo Canadian Tire, bravo! Thanks for including me and I can’t wait to see what next season brings. #MyCanvasstyle
