Toronto’s Rosedale decor strip has been enjoying a renaissance in recent months with a trio of fantastic new shops that I’ll be blogging about as soon as I can pull the post together. In the meantime, I want to share this stunning console on display in the window of one of my longtime favorite haunts, Decorum Decorative Finds (1210 Yonge St., 416.966.6829).
The case is lacquered wood and the inset, which looks like unpolished marble, is made of a molded composite. On sale for $850, the piece is breathtaking, exactly the kind of modern-meets-exotica that makes my pulse race. If my living situation weren’t so up-in-the-air I’d have brought the table home with me yesterday. Instead, some other lucky soul will build a magazine-worthy vignette around it — I trust they’ll cherish it as I would.
