From fashion for you to wear, to fashion for your home, Toronto is fashion-forward when it comes to both. There are so many home-stores with a modern flair where you can find that "perfect piece" for your place. I've highlighted just a few to keep in mind the next time you jet set north of the border.

StyleGarage: 983 Queen Street West (416) 534-4343
StyleGarage is a modern furniture and accessories retailer. They can create original and custom pieces as well!
Quasi Modo: 789 Queen Street West (416) 703-8300
Many consider this a hidden gem in the Queen West section of the city. They sell funky modern furniture, lighting, ceiling fans, storage solutions, stools and accessories. They also have unique modern exterior items like mailboxes, door bells and house numbers.
Pavilion: 739 Queen Street West (416) 504-9859
If you are looking for contemporary style and design for your home or space, then Pavilion is just what you're looking for. This Toronto design staple features modern home accessories and furnishings, including beautiful metal and glass tables, lighting, linens, throw pillows and frames. You'll find many Asian design elements as well.
One Twenty Modern: 120 Ossington Avenue (416) 537-4400
Everything in this store is beautiful, with clean lines...think simple decor and living. You can find great lighting, furniture, and home accessories.
Haveli Home: 171 East Liberty Street (In Historic Liberty Village District) (416) 539-8055
At this store you will find a collection of new, re-claimed, re-cycled and vintage furniture from India. All of their textile coverings, pillows and cushions are handmade in India. You can also get antique doors, arches, and sculptural objects as well. I actually bought a beautiful silk-printed scarf at the store for my mom for under $8 U.S.
All along Ossington Street, you will find an abundance of Art Galleries! Pop your head in and you can usually chat it up with the artist and find a great piece that is original and something you can remember your trip by every time you stare at it on your wall at home!
