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.

Over twenty years ago, artist Arthur Slenk found two boxes of handwritten music sheets that had been used by an amateur orchestra between 1872 and 1941. The documents had not seen daylight for almost half a century. Carefully, he examined page upon page, discovering small details: the varying pressure of pen upon paper, a corrected error, a tiny ink stain where the pen had stumbled over a fibre, fingerprints, or signs of wear in the corner where the sheet was flipped.
The sheet music was sorted by subject into separate envelopes and then finally pasted into designs. The artist worked on it every day and after seven years and 144 designs, he considered this gigantic collage completed. NLXL selected 8 of these designs for a new wallpaper collection: "Remixed. Wallpaper by Arthur Slenk". The result is incredible. State of the art scanning techniques capture the depth of the paper clippings and the vintage feel of the yellowed paper combined with the history behind the sheet music makes it look like a historical document on the wall.

SNURK means "to snore" in Dutch, but their products are anything but boring. This bedding is designed in Holland and manufactured in Portugal; printed on soft, luxurious percale cotton. Peggy and Erik, the talent behind SNURK, are a great new addition to the designers at CO. In addition to creating beautiful, quirky and original bedding and cushions, this pair of young designers is committed to realising their designs using ethical and environmentally responsible production processes.

We are pleased to introduce the Welland Collection by Dutch designer Ineke Hans to Montreal. Beautifully crafted and constructed, each piece is made from individually cut sections of solid ash. It is an effortlessly elegant design; a simple blend of curves and straight lines, which results in a collection that is proportionally exact, comfortable and visually balanced. The pieces are available in a cheerful red stain or in natural ash.
