Hopson Grace is armed with a vision to bring people together with beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces as a celebration of life’s special occasions and milestones. To reflect the brand values and aspirations of its founders, a design firm was enlisted to create a signature brand identity for the brand’s launch and first location in Toronto. The 1,234 square foot retail space is envisioned to be the destination for dining and lifestyle entertainment. Suitably located in the heart of Toronto’s Rosedale community, the brand’s modern sensibility is expressed in a muted palette of calming colours, classic textures, and noble materials to echo the timeless quality of their exclusive product offering.

Occupying the space of a former restaurant tenant in an older building presented unique challenges. Working from a tight start-up budget, the design covered a large scope of custom work for both the interior and exterior, including the restoration and protection of exterior facade and architectural design details.

From the warm patina of the bronzed metal exterior to the custom light fixture running the full length of the store, the brand’s style sensibility is expressed through the nuances of design detail. Two harvest tables reimagined in marble acts as the feature showcase for beautiful table settings and an array of complimentary gift items. Soft goods like linens and table runners are artfully displayed on a sculptural arrangement of bronzed metal hang bars. Perimeter fixtures float off the wall to display product collections while allowing an unobstructed flow of natural light into the space through the store’s large windows. Loaded with hidden storage space, tuck away trays to arrange place settings, and other smart design elements ensures the space does not compromise on any functional operation.

Designed as a reflection of the founders’ passion to elevate the entertaining experience, the new Hopson Grace boutique has turned the traditional homewares shopping experience into a thing of the past. Having quickly gained traction as a neighbourhood favourite, a brand expansion is planned with future locations launching in key cities across Canada.
