Get your Visa card ready for the new Ping Pong collection by designer Paola Navone. It’s “minimal Asiatic,” mixing teaks and metals. In other words, it’s inventive—and gorgeous.

Leather sectionals from the contemporary line are flying out the door, as are pieces from the Les Voyages collection.

Yes, it’s a sister store of Stacaro on King Street East in Toronto. They’re still the only retailers in Canada to carry the classy Belgian dining room pieces by Flamant, among other things, and farmhouse-style pieces by Antix of France.

2035 Stanley St.

A welcomed liquidation centre for Avant Scène, where Ikea regulars dare to dream. Stock varies, so go often. Imagine owning the four-part movable coffee table by Bellato ($1,000 at 50 per cent off) or Italian bar stools by Magis. Expect to find some accessories, too, like Tommy Larsen’s letter openers and cardholders from Denmark. Ask Diane, the manager, for help on all issues of design and decor.

As seen in The Apartment in Soho. Designer Jean Guy Chabauty started his own line of upholstered sofas, beds and tables in 1997, after 10 years in the business, then opened this dazzling showroom two years ago. Admire the new Carré sofa in black walnut and the retro-inspired Scandinavian armchair with a cherrywood structure. The comfy, big Europa is a lounger’s paradise.

Rugged and mod, the furniture by Erik Desprez makes good use of re-purposed wooden seams. Since 1995, this contemporary designer has been quietly pleasing clients with his meubles bruts. If furniture could be called chunky, this is it. By appointment only.
