Made Design Shop and Gallery

Canada is known for its love of hockey and its long winters but few people know of our neighbor to the north's wealth of innovative modern designers. Enter Made. The Toronto shop and gallery features pieces that are—as the storefront suggests—"Canadian made, hand made, custom made, and well made." It's a celebration of what Canadian design is all about.

Located on Dundas Street West, Made opened in 2005 with Shaun Moore and Julie Nicholson at its helm. Setting up shop in a former Chinese herb dispensary, the owners opted to leave the original signage in place and overlay the colorful design with their own nameplate. "Rather than impose a shiny new showroom and a sharp new sign, we preferred to integrate into the streetscape—but with our own spin," Nicholson says.
