Retail Therapy: Structube
Winter blues beware, an afternoon of design inspiration awaits at Structube (905 17th Avenue SW). Established in 1974, Structube began as a family business in Québec, when owners began creating tubular structures, or structures tubulaires for clothing retailers – hence the name “Structube”. Over the last 40 years, they’ve opened more than 40 stores across Canada, becoming a mecca of contemporary and modern home furnishings with a price tag that pleasantly surprises. The 17th ave location boasts beautiful tall ceilings and is brimming with natural light and warmth. It’s easy to get lost playing ‘house’ as you tour the individually designed living spaces here.
Each room is filled with a variety of unique and quality products for bedrooms, offices and small spaces. Beautiful lighting hangs from the ceiling and well-curated art is styled to match every corner of the shop. Frequent visits are a must as the showroom is constantly evolving, with new eye-catching product arriving every season from their main distribution warehouse in Montréal.
Spring is obviously on the horizon with pops of pink and yellow scattered throughout the room, with statement pieces like the Fiona Lounge chair (on sale for $499) in a showy shade of turquoise. Watch as your wish list grows and budget expands – the prices here are inspiration enough, the sharp cohesive design is a perk.
