We have said that properly furnishing a young professional pad is an art in itself. Thankfully, CB2 is there to make the lives of young professionals a little easier. This Crate and Barrel brand offers unique, well-designed and fresh options at prices that won’t break the bank. CB2 opened last month in Toronto to much acclaim and opens February 18 in Vancouver. Since it opened in 2000 in Chicago, it has not been in Canada until this year.
CB2 offers a young, fresh feel that has been described as “affordable modern” and is perfect for the typical YP apartment, loft or home. The store has items for all parts of your home like furniture, lighting, bed/bath, accessories, dining, pillows/rugs, office/storage and an assortment of unique one-of-a kind house warming gifts. CB2 is on top of emerging trends and new colours, offering items of varying scale for spaces small and large. The current colour palette is neutral gray and oatmeal with bold teal blue, orange and fuchsia accents; the simple designs blend into any décor.
We have visited the Toronto location a few times since it opened and always find it bustling with young professional activity and we have a feeling Vancouver YPs will flock to this gem this weekend as well.
