The Best New Design Stores in Toronto for 2016

The best new design stores in Toronto are defined by their heart. These places aren’t only selling cute and eclectic knick-knacks, furniture, and other design items to spruce up your apartment and your life, they’re bringing the love by repping independent designers.

Here are the best new design stores that opened in Toronto during 2016.

For the uneducated, it’s “Vee de Vee,” not “Vee-dev” or the like. This Ossington shop stocks cute items from local creators like Your Pal, Al as well as furniture, lighting and other home decor, proving when Toronto hunts for style, we still look to Montreal for guidance.
