DESIGN IN CANADA

FINDINGS Been in Canada for a few days and set out to look for some fun design stores. Spent my afternoon at Gastown and came across these fun stores:
Inform Interiors: all the designer furniture you can ever get your hands on. They also have a pretty decent collection of design, photography, and architecture books and international design magazines.
Nood: More designer furniture and fun collectibles.
Parliament: And more designer furniture.
Meat and Bread: Perfect little store for an afternoon snack. Charming design.
