It's been five years since we launched our website. In technology terms that's generations.
So, we're in the process of updating galerie-co.com to make your online experience more enjoyable with a website that's easier to navigate and a checkout process that is flexible and user-friendly.
Among the upgrades we are implementing: a transfer to an up-to-date platform, adding a site map, loading larger images, and updating our e-commerce software to accept credit cards as a primary payment option, along with PayPal.
Work on the parallel site means that this site has not been updated for a few weeks, and will not be updated until the new site is complete. We hope to launch the new site in mid-September, so stay tuned for the announcement.
Until then, this website continues to be fully operational and our sale will continue until the launch of the new site.
We hope you're having a great summer!

Launching in North America this weekend at the New York International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF): a new wallpaper collection by NLXL in collaboration with Studio Job -- "Archives by Studio Job".
This bold collection of seven expressive designs had its European debut last month to critical acclaim at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. NLXL has meticulously combed through the archives at Studio Job and created intricate patterns from their library of icons and images. The references are traditional and topical, organic and artificial, conveying a narrative that is highly expressive, ornamental and sophisticated.
Available now at Galerie CO.

We're pleased to welcome Claire Madill and heyday design to Galerie CO. Claire, who lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia, uses moulds of vintage mason jars to make exquisite porcelain vases. She transforms an authentic, utilitarian yet handsome piece into a functional object in a completely different medium where the old and the new and the solid and the delicate coexist in beautiful juxtaposition.

We'll be representing Maude Bouchard Furness of Montreal's Atelier HOCH and introducing her fabulous collection of sustainably produced furniture to the world.
If you are in Toronto and planning to attend the IDS14 you will find us at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Studio North, Booth SN7. Studio North is a show-within-a-show that supports Canada's vibrant and independent design scene. It features ateliers and design-makers from coast to coast exhibiting one-off and custom collections of furniture, lighting, glass, ceramics, textiles and surface design in a gallery-like installation. Studio North is one of the most anticipated annual exhibits for the design industry, media and a discerning design audience.
If you can't make it to Toronto, follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@GalerieCO). There'll be lots of other great talent from Québec and the rest of Canada and we'll be sharing the experience.
