Design & Real Estate Highlights
1. Georgian Home
Georgian Renovations started as a custom homebuilder more than 50 years ago. They have since built a name for themselves as one of the top luxury, high-end renovation companies, having renovated more than 100 homes in the past three years, with more than $15 million in projects on the table right now.
Georgian recently completed a stunning renovation on a 3,000 sq.-ft. North York home for a family of four. The house is 50 feet wide and has four bedrooms and bathrooms, a professional grade gourmet kitchen, a state-of-the-art backyard with a stone and cedar outdoor kitchen, rich porcelain floors (that look like sleek walnut wood) and lots of fine millwork — especially around the gas fireplace area. The house is very spacious and airy due to its open-concept architecture and California open riser staircase.
From the clothing line that is known for its classic crocodile-logo golf shirts, which embody sophistication, comfort and relaxation, comes another series of items that offers a sense of ease and coziness. Lacoste’s home, bedding and bath collection, known as “Lacoste Home,” offers the brand’s custom bedsheets and pillowcases. These bedding items are infused with modernist colours and offer a contemporary, chic feel to your bedroom. The soothing influence of the light grey, blue and green shades of the sheets will complement the walls and the overall ambience of your bedroom.
3. Lautem Bag
Just in time for fall, the design brand Lautem is offering some fascinating custom box bags. These traditionally handcrafted, Spanish-made leather handbags have a sharp design with clean and pure lines. Experienced Spanish leather craft specialists construct these bags with the search for excellence in mind. The leather used for these handbags is treated in Catalonia, a northeastern region of Spain. The handles are produced in a small factory in Valencia. One of the objectives of such a handbag is to offer undeniable value and new luxury.
4. Le Drugstore
Triple Michelin-starred chef Éric Fréchon is the man behind all the hype for Paris’s new hot-spot eatery, “Le Drugstore.” Fréchon has crafted a menu that will satisfy all palates — everything from sandwiches and finger foods to smoked haddock and salmon tartare marinated with oysters and horseradish. Located on the prominent Champs-Élysées, Le Drugstore has a 1960s vibe — with an intimate setup, stylish light fixtures and colourful couches — akin to a classic brasserie, but with elements of everyday luxury.
5. Essential Home
This fall and winter, the company known for providing the absolute best in mid-century furniture has exactly what you’re looking for. Essential Home has all the essentials. As the season changes, Essential Home varies its selection with new fall and winter offerings such as the velvety dark-green Ellen armchair, Collins chair and Florence stool, which create a verdant and vivacious aura in the room as summer becomes fall, and fall becomes winter. Essential Home also has new brass items such as the diamond mirror and the Miranda pineapple lamp.
