La Merceria's Sandra Rojas-Chinni

A charming café and decor store in downtown Toronto.

Sandra worked for House & Home's merchandising department (and also developed her aesthetic at Club Monaco, Caban, PC Home and The Bay) before venturing out on her own with La Merceria. "My dream job coming out of the Ryerson fashion and marketing program was Club Monaco — it embodies that south-of-France lifestyle. I like the philosophy of taking the white shirt and turning it into the white couch," she says. Her easy-going style is reflected in her shop's simple palette — white walls, warm wood accents and top-quality items to admire.
