Orbital Table: High Tech Sexy | Stylenorth.ca

I’m not sure how to make this post feel like anything other than an ad for Calligaris‘s new Orbital table but I’m so taken with the demo video that I can’t resist posting it. With a gentle nudge the pivoting mechanism — designed by Pininfarina, the renowned design and engineering company behind Ferrai, Maserati and Alfa Romeo — expands or contracts the sleek glass, steel and polyurethane table. The Orbital, which retails in Canada for $7,833, recently won a German Interior Innovation Award. This is one sexy dining table.

Store of the Week: Calligaris | Now Toronto

I might be a little biased (see surname in byline), but it’s hard to beat the contemporary look and sometimes fantastical functionality of Italian furniture. Take, for example, the Odyssey dining table in the King East showroom of Manzano-based Calligaris. Its walnut base supports a glass tabletop that rotates to reveal two leaves that twist into place, turning the six-seater into a set-up large enough for 12.

Introducing: Calligaris, King Street East’s newest home decor shop | Toronto Life

The place: Toronto’s largest selection of Calligaris merchandise is housed in a heritage building, originally built in 1907 for the Sovereign Bank of Canada, on King Street just east of Jarvis. Of course, King East needs more furniture stores like Queens Quay needs more condo buildings, but this Italian import offers a sleek alternative to the more traditional styles of Up Country and the antique stores that dot the strip.

sarah.wandering.: calligaris | the new store & mr. calligaris himself

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the opening of the new Calligaris Store here in Toronto and sitting down with the owner himself, Alessandro Calligaris, for an interview. For those of you unfamiliar with the brand, Calligaris is a manufacturer of modern Italian furniture. The company was started in 1923 by Alessandro's grandfather, making custom wood chairs, most notably the Marocca Chair.

Calligaris Comes to King | styleNorth

I was like a kid in a candy shop this week as I toured the brand new Calligaris Toronto store (170 King Street East), and not just because so much of the furniture is candy coloured. Lots of home decor retailers claim to be in the sweet spot between high- and low-end but Calligaris is the real deal hawking beautifully-designed Italian furnishings that aren’t disposable but won’t break the bank either. Yes, you might need to save up a bit in order to buy some of the pricier items but most of this stuff is actually within reach financially.
