Divine design at the Great Room

If you're a fan of the design shows on TV, then you'll also like this store on Oak Street in North Bay. The Great Room opened five years ago and has been bringing in fresh, contemporary design ever since. Stylish couches, chairs, beautiful table lamps, coffee tables, artwork... The Great Room is jam-packed with inspiration! In addition to what's on the floor, you should also make sure to browse through the store's many product catalogues and fabric samples. Start imagining that special piece that will make your home shine...

Coffee table in limed wood. This wood finish
gives the piece a slightly worn, weathered
look, that goes well with other natural materials.
Combine it with a linen or cotton-upholstered
couch or armchair, rustic pottery and glass. $770.
Console table in the same limed wood finish. 
This would be a great piece for an entrance
(practical with the drawers), or a living room 
Pottery is great if you want to introduce some
movement and flow, especially if your room
feels too square and symmetrical. This piece
has a beautiful shape. $131.
Armless chairs are ideal when space is tight. 
By foregoing the armrests, the chairs look
lighter. This might be desirable if you already 
have a lot of chunky, large furniture in the
room. $825 each.
A classic Bergère chair. This piece has
a pale, striped upholstery which gives it
a fairly casual appearance. I love the mix
of classic (the chair, which dates back to
the 1700s) and modern (the understated
upholstery. An oversized floral pattern
would also have an interesting effect).
$1140 for chair and ottoman.
Look twice! There is actually a chair
behind the pillow, and it's very similar 
to the iconic Ghost Chair. This version
is called Casper and costs $310.
Ottomans are a good alternative to coffee tables.
They can easily double as extra seating if you are
hosting a large crowd. They can also add some 
colour and pattern to a room. I love the graphic 
print of this piece. $807.
Simple, clean and effective! 
Pillows $62 each.
Interesting base on this table fixture.
If you have other circle motives in your
room, this is your lamp (or even if
you just like the shape of it). $125.
The shiny surface of this lamp will
make the light in the room bounce 
around. That's especially desirable in 
a darker, smaller space. $224.
I love the shape of this table lamp.
This sculptural pedestal table would 
look fabulous in a big entrance. Just 
add a bouquet of fresh flowers on top.
You'll be smiling every time you come
home. $180.
Summer is almost here and it's time to say 
"hello" to bright, happy colours. Changing
throws and pillows according to the season
is a good way to always keep your home
feeling fresh and up-to-date. $55.
Every gorgeous home needs a beautiful 
mirror. $350.

The Great Room has some great 
fabrics. Check out these for example:

This Parson-inspired chair has timeless
style. "Pedro" dining chair in leather.
