DesignEd_Stock_2014_Kimberley_0487Now that I’ve had some time to catch my breath after the whirlwind that is Toronto design week (January 16-22, 2017), I find my thoughts wandering back to one show in particular, presented by Toronto Design Offsite. The idea itself is so fun, I wish I’d thought of it. Called Outside The Box, it tasks a correspondent from select cities to choose products that offer a snapshot of the design scene there. The catch: everything has to fit into a banker’s box that is then shipped to the show’s location. This year, 11 cities participated, including style hubs such as Los Angeles, New York, Toronto and Montreal. But it was three less expected spots that stood out to me, proving once again that great style can be found anywhere. Click through to discover the surprising places that made my list.
