Muji Toronto: Our Editors’ Favourite Finds
When the invite came to attend the opening of the first Muji store in Canada, myself and a few colleagues were very excited. We were all familiar with the Japanese brand, and love the well-designed, no-frills approach to quality that the company stands for and executes so very well. A trip to New York City was not complete without a visit to Muji.
The media party last November did not disappoint. We were greeted at the door by Mr. Matsumoto, the Canadian PR representative, and ushered into the new store with open arms and Japanese hospitality.
It’s definitely a new staple in Toronto for well-designed basics, and worth checking out if you’re in the area. It’s located across from the Eaton Centre in the Atrium mall.
Here’s a list of some of the items we picked up:
Margot Austin bought a great cream woolly sweater and go-to basic white T-shirts.
Lauren Petroff picked up a fab blue and cream duvet cover (which has washed beautifully). It has ties in the inside corners to keep your duvet in place and a zipper instead of the usual buttons.
Sarah Hartill stocked up on great office supplies, paper products and pens.
And I went a bit crazy and bought a ton of stuff including my new favourite wine glasses. They’re stemless with a great modern shape and do well in the dishwasher.
Oh, and a hot tip: I will now and forever wear “right angle socks” — thanks Kai Ethier for the head-ups. They are amazing!
