CB2, the younger sister shop to Crate & Barrel, has finally gone international with its online sales. That means that yes, we can now order all the gorgeous home decor bits to Canada. You will have to wait for the furniture — right now only accessories are available online. It’s rumoured, however, that the first CB2 shop will be opening this summer here in Toronto — yeah!
The look is a bit younger and more playful than Crate & Barrel, and I find that they offer a lot more colour. It’s definitely a website to have on your radar. Happy shopping — just in time for the holidays! Here are my picks:
This Hinge Sconce is a steal for $90. Pair them above a bed for easy reading.
The lines of this white matte Pond Bowl are gorgeous — it’s even pretty just left empty. Iron, $50.
The Red Bird Pillow looks really pricey, but is only $35 — it would pack a lot of decor punch in a monochromatic room.
The Orbit Mobile offers an interesting solution to a space that may not allow for pendant lights or a heavy piece hanging from the ceiling. Its scale is substantial, so it could make quite the art piece in a room. Iron and powdercoat finish, $40.
I’ll have to wait until summer to pick up a mod Scan Flint Lounge Chair. Solid white oak, $600.
I might have to order a Hopscotch Rug for my foyer — I think it could be super fun, and I know my five year old would love it. 100% wool, $250.
