Design: TOMA

I had the opportunity to meet Montreal-based designer, and leader of the TOMA design studio, Anne Thomas in person at last month’s Come Up to My Room event in Toronto. She was there showing off the prototype for one of TOMA‘s latest designs, the Inside Out closet. White, functional, and very cool.

So while we wait for the closet to appear in retail spaces in Canada and abroad, we can be on the lookout for some of TOMA‘s other well-designed products, including this newly released shadow clock which are printed and die-cut out of synthetic paper.

Designer Spotlight: TOMA

I read about TOMA Objects just the other day in the March issue of Canadian House & Home. It was instant attraction. Designer Anne Thomas and her team make ordinary objects look extradordinary and all TOMA products are made in Montreal.

My favourite of TOMA’s current collection is the gorgeous water drop boot tray. I mean…come on…have you ever seen a more chic boot tray? I love it!

I’m completely attracted to these stylish and so very functional hangers. Scarves and accessories would look beautiful looped through the whimsical loops.

Aren’t the designs (little chap, milk bottle, grass, typo) on these milk glasses sweet?

Another favourite object is the sculptural umbrella stand. It’s a beautiful and simple design and when it’s not full of umbrellas, it’s a gorgeous work of art.
