The concept of high style and low prices comes together in Winnipeg-based EQ3’s line of furniture and accessories.
Their spacious Toronto showroom resembles a two-story loft seen in magazines: extra high ceilings, exposed ductwork, natural finishes, and tall windows that fill the place with natural light.
The set up is that of a really laid-back and cool condo. Throughout the store are small room vignettes - a living room over here, a dining room over there, and a bedroom in between. Styles have a modern slant, but transitional in nature. The fabrics are neutral, the finishes dark, and the textures varied.
EQ3 also carries sleek office furniture (the Bensen office chair, inspired by a Herman Miller design, is a steal at $399), a wall of tableware and glassware, linens for the table and bed, and accessories.
Selection is key at EQ3. There are a variety of pieces that can be placed in any home – classic or contemporary. It’s difficult to choose just one thing to take home, so it’s best to come back several times.
