Earlier this month, from June 4th to 7th, Statum Designs participated in the Canadian Furniture Show at the International Centre. It took months of planning and plenty of hard work but we believe we created our best show yet! Here’s a recap of the four days we spent in the Statum Designs booth.
Preparations started three days before the event. Walls were constructed, tech was installed, and all the furniture pieces made their way into the space. Six vignettes were designed to showcase our range of products and styles, each with an accompanying inspiration board.
The “Cosmopolitan Couture” scheme was inspired by Spanish textile company Alhambra‘s gorgeous fabrics. The bold colours and patterns recall the runways of Oscar de la Renta and Chanel, and we simply can’t get enough of them!
No Mad Men fan could resist the “Handsome Dwelling” vignette, complete with the retro Jonas apartment sofa and Simon ottoman. Beautiful Kravet fabrics act as the centrepiece for the menswear-inspired colour scheme.
The Daniela sectional upholstered in a creamy white herringbone was the basis for our cozy “Modern Retreat” display. With accents of warm grey and faux fur who wouldn’t want to snuggle up in it?
The Eden sofa sparkled in “All That Glimmers”, with lush velvets and mixed metals including some shiny gold nail heads. Sophisticated and glamorous!
“More is More” had a country cottage feel, with the rolled armed Riley sofa, skirted ottoman and an abundance of patterns from florals to polka dots.
The lovingly crafted inspiration boards tied it all together.
Two of the vignettes were enhanced with videos produced by Joe Di Risio of JD Shows. Each one acted as a window onto the setting that inspired the design; this one accompanying the Manhattan sofa shows scenes of downtown life.
On Saturday evening Statum hosted a wine and cheese event catered by the International Centre, with delicious snacks and Jackson-Triggs wine. Music got the energy up while guests mixed and mingled among the furniture.
J. Studio is now open in SOFA at the International Centre! The Statum team paid a visit to the new showroom featuring the Jane by Jane Lockhart collection.
The Canadian Furniture Show introduced a Consumer Day this year and opened its doors to the public for the first time ever. This day was marked by special talks by Karen Sealy and Steven and Chris.
Family members stopped by to say hello and test out the new pieces. These electric blue Louis chairs were a huge hit!
Thanks to everyone who attended and big thanks to all those involved for their hard work and for making this year’s show a great one!
