The relationship between home decor and furniture is the same as between clothing and accessories. “It’s like when you add jewellery to an outfit,” says Attica Furnishings co-founder Suzanne Saul. “Pillows, lamps, rugs—they really make a space shine.” Winning gold in Best Home Decor and Best Furniture Store makes Attica a prodigy, that rare business that’s an unqualified success in both fields. The merchandise on offer at the Robie Street store is chosen with an artist’s eye for style and a careful shopper’s instinct for quality, and if you don’t see what you’re looking for, it can probably be ordered. Nothing is impossible for Attica, except choosing a favourite between furniture and home decor. Saul refuses to entertain the idea, but she will say “decor is where the magic happens.”
