ICONIC QUEEN WEST STYLE POPS UP AT STREETCAR’S THE CARNABY
Cutting-edge trio come together to liven up June 23, 24 weekend with Street Style
With the same contemporary city groove its name evokes, Streetcar Developments’ The Carnaby recently hosted the Street Style pop-up shop, bringing together a knock-out trio of Queen West’s finest: The Carnaby by Streetcar Developments, a developer well known for its new-fashioned boutique buildings in the city’s trendiest neighbourhoods, Design Republic, an icon of hip, urban décor, and Seven Haus Design, one of the city’s edgiest firms.
Outside, Jamba Juice relieved the heat with some cool, delicious samples, while inside, cocktails and local fare offered shoppers a taste of The Carnaby life. A live performance by Dani and the Groove Gurus and tracks spun by the young, passionate up-and-comer DJ Spoonz provided an energizing soundtrack. A sweet candy buffet was well-matched by the sweet deals at The Carnaby: Thanks to Streetcar, future residents of one-bedroom lofts and one-bedrooms with dens get $10,000 in Design Republic furniture; two-bedroom and two-bedroom lofts with dens get $16,000. This package comes with not only designer furniture, but a professional design consultation as well — an expert from Seven Haus will help you create the killer loft space you’ve always envisioned.
While showcasing The Carnaby’s available finishes and floorplans, the presentation centre/pop-up shop’s slick colour palette and industrial edge offered buyers a taste of loft living in one of Toronto’s hippest signature neighbourhoods, the Art and Design District. As well as stellar deals like vintage overdyed rugs at half price, Design Republic’s contemporary furnishings provided eye candy and inspiration to over 300 modern design-lovers who attended the two-day event, while designers from Seven Haus took sale-goers through the model suites, talking finishes and colours, and offering expert insight on the best ways to arrange all that great furniture.
Rethinking. Urban Living. It’s more than just a motto for Streetcar Developments — it’s a summary of their building philosophy. Streetcar is responsible for the finest boutique buildings in Toronto, including The Carnaby, 2 Gladstone and 8 Gladstone, all in the heart of the Queen West Art & Design District. The Carlaw, an outstanding Streetcar condo taking shape on Queen Street East, will host the next great Street Style pop-up shop later this summer. Details are coming!
