More Green Home Decor Solutions To Reduce, Recycle, Reuse And Re-love
Around The Block Has Expanded And Relocated To 150 Lesmill Road.
- (1888PressRelease) July 16, 2011 - Leading Toronto furniture and décor consignment store Around The Block has moved to a new location at 150 Lesmill Road (just south of HWY 401) with approximately 10,000 square feet to display thousands of pieces of contemporary and vintage furniture and accessories. With tons of FREE parking, Around The Block is open seven days a week (Monday - Friday: 10:00am - 5:00pm; Saturday and Sunday: 10:00am - 6:00pm) and is accessible by TTC via the 122 Bus out of York Mills Station. For more information please call (416) 546-1760, visit www.aroundtheblock.com or follow on twitter at http://twitter.com/AroundTheBlock1 for up-to-date information on new items arriving daily.
"We outgrew our original location," states Warren Hales, owner Around The Block. "With the extended floor space we can now offer more of the condo size furniture that is in great demand. Our new store is three times the size so we can accommodate larger items. We've got space to show off the pieces that create a focal point in our customers' homes -- dining sets and large armoires."
Around The Block houses thousands of contemporary and vintage items including living room sets, dining sets and chandeliers displayed in settings that give the shopper a genuine feel for the potential of the pieces. With high ceilings and an abundance of natural light, the space has an airy loft feeling, and each piece individually stands out among the others. New to Around The Block, the store-long "wall of art" prominently displays an ever-changing collection. From modern expressionist pieces to traditional folk art, each piece shines in a new light.
"New inventory arrives daily at Around The Block," adds Hales. "Our customers drop by regularly because they know that original pop art, small scale, practical furniture and unique items often sell within days of arriving. If you find an item that you absolutely love you need to act quickly or it might be gone!"
Around The Block is recommended by such renowned designers as Sarah Richardson, Tommy Smythe, Kimberley Seldon and Glen Peloso. With an eclectic mix of luxury, contemporary and vintage décor at great prices, Around The Block attracts a wide range of clientele such as designers, decorators, remodelers, stagers, parents who are shopping for their children leaving home, trendy shoppers who are thinking green and prefer to buy second hand items, and shoppers who are searching for one-of-a-kind quality pieces.
As a destination shopping location, people plan a trip specifically to visit Around The Block and spend hours going through the substantial inventory. The extensive showroom features a wide selection of items including bookcases, desks, dining tables, chairs, dressers, coffee tables, glasses, china, sculptures, artwork and lighting in modern and traditional styles.
"We are very selective about the inventory Around The Block carries," assures Hales. "We evaluate each item that we sell carefully and only accept quality items that are in very good condition. By listening to our customers we know what they're interested in and pride ourselves on offering them the look they're after while staying within their budget and on trend."
People looking for an eco-friendly way to add character to their home without spending a lot of money can find items that are built to last with the added benefit that it follows the environmental mantra: reduce, recycle, reuse and re-love.
"Many people are looking for environmentally friendly ways to update their décor and by shopping consignment they can refresh their home in an eco-friendly way," adds Hales. "People who are tired of a piece or simply want to try a new look can make money by selling an item on consignment rather than sending it to a landfill."
Many items are brought to Around The Block when people are downsizing, moving into new homes or just want to change their décor. With new inventory arriving daily, the perfect item to complete a space just might be at Around The Block.
