This past week, the newly launched opened its doors to industry professionals, welcoming clients, family, and VIPs to check out this super versatile 20,000 sqft space! Partnered with the Magen Group, with the help of some of Toronto’s top industry vendors, this furniture-store-by-day converts seamlessly into an oh-so-impressive event venue by night. A big thanks to Matt at for capturing the event.

Entering the space, I was blown away with the high-impact presentation of all the vendors’ booths. The energy was palpable as everyone was so excited to showcase their work.

With a nod toward what will undoubtedly become a popular mitzvah staple, the venue was lined with colourful and seemingly endless amounts of extra yummy treats from as well as InStyle Events. Sugar rush is an understatement! We’re talking ice cream, cotton candy, bubble gum, chocolate, and so much more. Let’s just call it an amuse bouche.

All the stunning, vibrant colors of the table set ups and swag had no shortage of creativity and customization. It truly felt like I was walking through a magical world of design.

Approaching the end of the runway, beautiful drapes welcomed you into the main space of the venue: a whopping 6,000 sqft of open, versatile space. The blank canvas provides the perfect backdrop for just about any event type: weddings, corporate events, galas, mixers – you name it! For this event, the outer perimeter showcased more of the venue’s preferred vendors. 

Front and centre was – of course – Magen Boys Entertainment who lit up the room with a duo from their ever-growing, talented entertainment roster. My company, Layla Nassar Events Inc gave away custom straws and chip bags while gave away custom lip glosses made on site from their new lip bar.
