    Toronto Roche Bobois lovers are no longer forced to drive to Montreal to buy their favourite pieces. Open since June, fans can now happily browse through two floors and 15,000 square feet of Roche Bobois furniture in their very own city. “They keep saying, ‘Finally, you are here,’” says manager Shahrzad Ghaffari, who describes the furniture as “contemporary, minimalist but not cold.” He promises the best Italian leather products in the city—everything from sofas and chairs to very low coffee tables and wall units. This French chain has traditional lines under the headings Les Voyages and Les Provinciales, but Ghaffari says young couples love the contemporary furniture (Les Contemporains), especially the Metropolis line. “People think Toronto is conservative but we are not finding this. The younger generation is looking for contemporary. They sit down in here and they don’t want to leave.”
