If you pass by what used to be the Consumers Gas Company building, you’ll see that there is no exterior hint to what Yabu Pushelberg did inside. Today the 1907 building has a brand new interior that hosts sophisticated furniture, textiles and lighting.
Avenue Road is a very modern 15,000 square-foot showroom, custom designed in a simple, symmetrical way, and featuring materials that help enhance natural light and the feeling of space. The place looks like a large gallery of special pieces of art that can be touched an bought by visitors.
Names like Christophe Delcourt from France, Eileen Grey from Britain, Atelier Vierkant, Branco & Preto, and many more are well represented by the pieces showcased in the gallery. You can only get a real taste of how impressive Avenue Road really is if you come and see it for yourself in Toronto, Canada.
