Where Do We Shop?

Posted by Peter Brooks in Design Tips, Interior design, Shops on Oct 13th, 2011

We are starting a new Blog Series and every week we will feature one of our favourite shops. I’m often asked if I have any favourite shopping haunts, so I thought I would try to blog one shop at a time.  I have so many different shops that I’ll visit each week depending on what we are looking for specifically.  It could be tiles, bath fixtures, wallpaper, fabrics, furniture or art work. Let’s shop!

Where are we shopping this week?     

Our first shop is macFab Fabrics (755 Queen Street East) and macFab Home (734 Queen Street East)

macFABfabrics

Dale Sonier, owner of MacFAB moved from his very successful Queen St. West location to his new digs on Queen St. just east of Broadview.  Dale, along with his staff (Becks, she’s who we love to deal with when we are shopping there – say hello for us and tell them BedfordBrooks sent you J)are such a great pleasure to work with, full of energy and incredible service. When it comes to fabrics they bring the latest in design and colour.  The macFab workshop offers quality workmanship producing beautiful drapery, headboards, slip covers etc.

Dale recently took on a beautiful retail shop right across the street from macFABfabrics and named it macFABhome! This is an absolutely must see shop.  A unique mix of new and vintage furniture pieces, accessories and fabrics.  They showcase European fabrics, wool rugs, and everything vintage. If you’re looking for that one of a kind stand out piece stop by and have a talk with Dale or one of his friendly staff.  If what you’re looking for isn’t in their shop he will create it for you. I’ll let you in on a little secret – They have a full shipment of vintage furniture coming in from Paris very soon that they will reupholster and reshape into to functional art forms.
