Indie furniture marketplace pops up in Toronto

Toronto's already got tons of talented designers creating awesome furniture with their own two hands; now, they've got a locally-built online marketplace to help them get their pieces out there. Sonder Mill, a brand-new Toronto-based e-commerce site, mixes pieces from Toronto designers with creations by up-and-comers from all over North America.

If the thought of buying a giant table sight unseen (no matter how reclaimed or artisanal that table may be) freaks you out, you can head over to Metropolis Factory in the Junction (50 Edwin Ave.) Friday and Saturday to check out some of the wares in person. The site has been converted into a showroom/pop-up shop, featuring tons of pieces from Toronto-area vendors (and a couple from as far away as Montreal and California).

Best of all, there's something for every budget, starting at $40 for a vintage letter sign or $80 for a Pekota Design pendant light. (My fave: Zenporium's pieces made from reclaimed painted boat hulls.)
