This will be represented through the journey of the seed. The installation will take visitors on a sensory experience through memories, human connection, happiness and the environment. The honeycomb-like exhibit will focus on generating stimulation from all sensory receptors as visitors travel their path eliminating external noise and disruption and imagining themselves as a seed and connecting back to the earth.

Remnant Warehouse

How to Save on Smaller Projects!

Latest News


How to Save on Smaller Projects!

How you can save money – and help the environment by reducing construction waste.

SPONSORED CONTENT

Introducing a new program by Latitude Countertops for significant cost saving when renovating smaller surface projects like a small kitchen, island, fireplace or bathroom.

The Remnant Warehouse was born out of the countertop fabrication firm’s goal to reduce waste. The company created an online inventory with easily searchable remnant pieces of stone and quartz for small project needs.

Today, just more than a year later, the Remnant Warehouse (qrw.ca) boasts more than 2,000 pieces of popular quartz brands such as Caesarstone, Silestone and HanStone, as well as natural stone in all shapes and sizes. Hundreds more pieces are added each week.

What exactly is a remnant?

When a typical kitchen countertop is fabricated, it comes from a full slab of either quartz or natural stone ranging in size from 46 to 50 sq. ft. Since all of Latitude’s countertops are made to custom sizes and lengths, there are always leftover pieces of full slabs which can be used in other smaller projects. These remnants then become available for significantly discounted prices.

Searching the Remnant Warehouse is easy. You can search by colour name, size or brand name, and of course purchasing online is easy. You can also get estimates on fabrication projects using Latitude’s fast and easy Webquotes.

To register for designer and contractor pricing, visit qrw.ca

Features and benefits

The benefits of using qrw.ca include:

  • Saves money and helps environment
  • Fast and easy online searching and secure purchasing
  • Instant online project quoting for designer and contractor customers
  • Remnants are ideal for small surfaces such as vanity and island tops and galley kitchens, fireplace surrounds, table tops, furniture accents, shower walls and surrounds

Designer Tip: Everyday Luxury

Designer Tip: Everyday Luxury

Interior designer Heather Segreti creates a sumptuous retreat echoing the features and feel of a luxury vacation

By Heather Segreti • Photography By Larry Arnal

Vacation every day is the theme for this master bathroom. Who doesn’t want to wake up every morning and feel like they just walked into a luxury resort master ensuite?

With that being said, our departure point for this down-to-earth couple with exceptional taste was to provide them with all the amenities as well as the esthetic experience you would find in a luxury resort.

Nestled in the King City area of north Toronto, this sprawling bungalow set the stage for what would soon be an exquisite master ensuite oasis.

Where to start? With a grand tile of course!

STATEMENT TILE

I suggested we look at a large-format porcelain option, which is making headway in the marketplace right now. The latest trend is to digitally produce imagery of actual stone printed onto porcelain tile, the options are endless. Sizes can go up from five to 10 feet for the wall tiles, and smaller formats for the floors.

After viewing the product on display at CIOT Marble and Granite in Vaughan, we made our choice. Onice–Perla, a beautiful onyx image with a vertical vein direction, which would accentuate the 11-foot ceilings.

THE FIXTURES

The space-planning mandate was to have a separate water closet, large shower with bench seat and rain showerhead, spa-like soaker tub with floor-mounted tub filler, as well as a spacious his-and-her double-sink vanity with makeup area.

We firmed up the details of the vanity, shower footprint along with the tub and enclosed water closet. Once the footprint for the space was established, we then expanded on the details.

STYLISH & SEAMLESS STORAGE

The vanity sits on custom legs with a laser-cut, lower decorative panel allowing the tile to flow under the cabinets for a more open, furniture look. The custom vanity with fully integrated mirrors and lighting added to the customization and grandeur of the space.

In the centre of the vanity, in the mirror panel over the makeup counter, we added a recessed hidden cabinet in the wall to conceal bathroom items. You would not even know that it opens by looking at it.

PIÈCE DE RESISTANCE

One of the most exciting and impactful features of this ensuite is the large-format onyx porcelain wall panels, paired with the matching large-scale floor tiles. These panels created the perfect backdrop for the stunning Victoria & Albert Limestone soaker tub.

The “Toulouse” tub’s elegant curves complement the winding, vertical veining of the onyx slabs. Their tubs are made of a blend of volcanic limestone and high-performance resins. Naturally white, each item is individually hand-finished by craftsman. We complemented the tub with the very beautiful Perrin and Rowe floor-mounted tub filler in a polished nickel finish.

COHESIVE CONNECTION

All the hardware in the space is polished nickel for a cohesive look throughout the rest of the house. I added in subtle details that add to the synergy in the space, such as the custom plaster crown moulding, which mirrors the wood detailing at the base of the vanity.

We created a calm, spa-like experience with a neutral colour palette that has minimal contrast. We utilized natural materials associated with nature, such as the porcelain panels, gentle, flowing lines rather than sharp angles like the oval undermount sinks, Toulouse V&A soaker tub along with the vertical veining in the porcelain onyx slabs.

The simplicity of the Caesarstone countertop and bench seat allow for the onyx slabs to stand out, yet I can’t emphasize enough the importance of the balance and synergy by choosing finishes that complement each other, rather than compete with each other.

Our master ensuite flows beautifully with the master bedroom adding to the calm oasis, a spa-like feeling the homeowners enjoy every day

Caesarstone’s project with New York-based collaborative practice Snarkitecture for their 2018 Designer Program will focus on the icon of the modern home: the kitchen island. The collaboration will present a realistic and practical interpretation of Caesarstone, one that looks at the functionality of the kitchen, while drawing from Snarkitecture’s signature blend of architecture and art.

THE FUTURE OF CANADIAN LIVING – TREEHOUSE

Multiple-time Interior Design Show Best Booth winner, AyA Kitchens and Baths, has confirmed that it will join forces with U31 Design and Cleaf by Weston Premium Woods for The Future of Canadian Living. Inspired by the culturally diverse makeup of Toronto, The Future of Canadian Living will feature a series of pod-like spaces to resemble a 15-foot high treehouse. Through the intersection of texture, height and space, each pod will represent archetypal characters of traditional rooms – a kitchen, a bathroom and a library.

THE CLOVER PAVILION BY ONTARIO WOOD:

The IDS18 ON Wood Display is the next step in an ongoing applied research into light-weight, hybrid spatial structures inspired by natural and biological systems. The Clover Pavilion is a grouping of partially enclosed floral display areas that feature tension-activated plywood petals. The project seeks to infuse wood design, one of Ontario’s enduring craft traditions, with experimental ideas and techniques from engineering and material systems theory. Technology and craft are developed together to produce a rich sequence of spaces that are responsive to visitors and highlight the varied Ontario Wood prototypes and artifacts on display.


CANADIAN BY NATURE: THE BEST IN NEW ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of IDS, this exhibition brings together some of the most talented designers and studios, whether practicing in Canada or abroad that represent the best of Canadian design today. Curated by Paul Makovsky, Vice President of Design of Metropolis magazine, the exhibition showcases the work of over 50 architecture and design studios–both emerging and established–to explore how considerations of sustainability, conscientious uses of materials and design philosophies can create projects and products that truly stand out, in terms of both their aesthetics and design.
