Great sofa for bonding
Not only can this country produce a very exciting parliamentary crisis — which I think is sexy in a Canadian sort of a way we also make some darn fine furniture. Design company UpCountry has launched a green upholstery line that’s made in the GTA!
The first piece, called the Bond Sofa, is a blend of natural cotton fibre and bamboo. Dyes used are certified by the Organic Materials Institute. The fabric contains no petroleum-based fibre and uses certified organic bleaching methods, without chemicals. The frame is made from a combination of Canadian hardwood and engineered wood.
Plus, it’s got great retro styling, making it a comfy, chic spot to sit and chat.
Maybe the PMO’s office should order one (as part of an economic stimulus package, of course), and invite Stephane, Jack and Gilles over to sit on it and share thoughts and feelings. Bring in some martinis (shaken, not stirred) and it could turn into a party!
