Art Day Se7en!

The CMI team is eager to get out of the office for the 7th installment of Art Day. We have been busy brainstorming ways to come up with the most original designs and have decided to create images through photography. The group is setting out on March 6th to shoot images along the rail path – rain or shine! The focus of the outing will be to capture the natural beauty and balance between industrial and organic elements. Stay tuned for updates and photos of our art inspired field trip!

Jeffrey has good advice!

Stair runners were the hot topic in yesterday’s “Ask Jeffrey” column in the National Post. Fisher gave a homeowner some great ideas to jazz up their hardwood staircase, including one of our floral stair runners we designed in collaboration with the talented Shelley Kirsch. Read the article here.

Cover Magazine Ad Campaign Photo Shoot

#13 Platinum - Art Day Collection

Earlier this week, we held a photo shoot at the Klaus by Nienkamper showroom in downtown Toronto. The space was bright, open and displayed pieces from Klaus' modern furniture collection as props on the set. The photos were taken by commercial photographer, Chris Harrison, and will be developed into a full-page ad in the next issue of Cover, a magazine for modern carpet & textile for interiors. The ad will feature one of the carpets from our Art Day Collection and will promote Fiorza Tappeti, a one of a kind rug exhibit during Milan's Design Week, April 17-22. We have been invited as part of a select group to showcase two of our carpets at the show, which is promising to revolutionize the contemporary carpet design world. The showroom exhibit is taking place in the Brera Design District, an area brimming with avant-garde galleries and fresh new designers. If you are planning on attending Milan Design Week this Spring, be sure to stop by the Galleria Giacomo Manounkian Noseda to see our beautiful designs on display!
