If you’re attending IDS11, you don’t want to miss Snob’s booth (#1910).
Denise Zidel is the proprietor of Snob Boutique in Toronto’s east end. Denise picks each of the handcrafted designs Snob showcases with the hand and eye of a curator. The result is a space rich, inviting, and chock full of character. As you travel through Snob you get a sense that each item has a story to tell, crafted by artisans from a number of African countries.
Denise seeks out – and Snob embodies – the soul of sustainism, the latest buzz word gaining momentum in the design world. With innovative design concepts that are sensitive to nature, created following ethically and environmentally aware principles, the end result are artistic pieces that help us feel connected to the planet and each other.
Many of Snob’s pieces, like the headdress and swirl mirror pictured, blend colour, natural forms and textures with a strong cultural voice; they play with scale and proportion to create ‘furniture as art and art as furniture’.
Snob is located at 202F-388 Carlaw Ave, Toronto
