Design Finds, Toronto

Map View
Design aficionados will find more than their fair share of pieces of décor at the eyeball-friendly shops dotted across Toronto. In Toronto's east end, browsers can cruise the King West strip of stores, picking up both wallet-happy and splurge-worthy designer items. Those looking for quirky gifts that are less Celine and more Kiesza can head west, for Toronto-made goods. Meanwhile, lovers of refined Scandinavian design or salvaged antiques must go to the Junction—a hotspot for design in Toronto.
