buying in january

January is generally one of the slower retail months in the year, but for those of us behind the scenes, it's a very busy time going on buying trips. Industry furniture and gift shows are a great opportunity to see what's new and fresh in home decorating. It's also a great time to renew relationships with suppliers.

One of our suppliers that we look forward to seeing show season is G.Romano, a contemporary Canadian upholstery company that features quality Canadian design. Shown in the photo above is my husband Chris, me (Suzanne), and Natalina Romano and Rick Lovegrove. Rick and Natalina are the second generation of G.Romano, and over the years have been doing a fantastic job running the company and keeping it at the forefront of contemporary design.

Shown here is the Tribeca sofa from G. Romano, which was featured in the Trends Display at the The Canadian Home Furnishings Market. The slip-covered Tribeca is the latest in modern, comfortable, casual living, with a European flair.

Also new at this show are rugs designed by Attica's Christopher Joyce. Arriving just in time (two days before the show opened!), were a few of his new designs:

Visit Attica in Halifax and St. John's to see what's new and fresh for your home or office. There's many more exciting products that will be arriving at the store on a weekly basis.
