Office: GlucksteinHome

As a blogger I sometimes get the opportunity to do some pretty cool things. Most recently, I was invited to visit the Toronto offices of GlucksteinHome. (Hooray!)

I feel so grateful that the GlucksteinHome team stopped their work for a while (don’t tell Mr. Gluckstein) to show me around their all-white space. And of course I am thrilled to be able to share my photos with all of you.

Now, if you know the work of Brian Gluckstein, you know that he’s pretty much a traditionalist. Gorgeous neutral fabrics, rich woods, and perfectly placed accessories come together to create the most inviting spaces. What you may be surprised to learn is that the office space of the GlucksteinHome division is a super sleek, well-designed, modern, all-white work space that is filled, almost floor-to-ceiling, with IKEA products.

Yes – even the ceiling and wires are white. This makes me smile.

I feel so lucky that Cheryl, Lauren and the whole GlucksteinHome team welcomed me so warmly into their work environment. I have to admit that I’m pretty envious of their lovely white space. But of course, with Brian Gluckstein at the helm why should I expect anything less than perfection?

Many thanks to Cheryl and the whole team at GlucksteinHome for welcoming me in, showing me around, and treating me to an all around fabulous afternoon.

      Ditto. I need floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. And I love the closed cabinetry in the first ‘work station’ photo. It was also so interesting to speak to learn about each person’s roles at GH…jobs that are so completely different from my own! I do feel quite lucky.

      Glad you approve Cheryl. I can imagine you thought I was a bit crazy when I started taking photos of the pushpins.

    If you put these photos up and did a ‘guess the designer’ question, I’d never think gluckstein!

    Amazing workplace!!!! No visual interference to compete with their creativity!!!!

      I just love this space! And yeah – it’s definitely not the look of the traditional Gluckstein we all know and love. But how much do I love the fact that the GlucksteinHome team went for Ikea? Lots!
