Designer Christopher Spraggett’s well-appointed Muskoka shop is filled with covetable furniture, lighting and accessories, but most people notice the floor first. “It looks like a hand-painted floor, but it’s actually covered in eight-by-10-foot printed vinyl oilcloth floor mats,” says Christopher. “I bought a bunch and arranged them together; it’s more practical for people coming in with wet shoes.”
His creative approach makes Lock + Quay (2 James Bartleman Way) a rich source for cottage style that’s anything but cliché. Last summer, Christopher moved the shop to its current location on the second floor of a 100-year-old building on the water.
