HOW WE GOT HERE
The idea for TOILE sparked with the discovery that while the bedding industry had a lot to offer, Montreal was without. Travels both domestically and overseas provided the momentum in developing a business that would provide designers and consumers with quality, high luxury product and services that would compliment them.
On a visit to Italy, I had the opportunity to take stock of smaller mills and what they had to offer. Genuine relationships were built and we were able to not only bring in well crafted Italian brands but also develop our own signature line of bed linens. Subsequent travels to New York confirmed that many US suppliers were also under-represented in Canada.
TOILE quickly took off as a leading Montreal supplier of high quality linens from around the world - brands that not only look the part but provide the feel and comfort only a product with integrity can deliver.
Thanks to our incredible team we continue to provide services, from concept to installation, that are key to what sets TOILE Showroom apart. In fact, TOILE’s charm and success directly reflect the strong women behind the scenes.
I invite you to take a minute to meet our team:
