Oct 30, 2015

Comments Off on EQ3 City Guide; Winnipeg

In honour of the 12 amazing cities that play host to our retail locations across North America, we would like to share with you our first ever EQ3 City Guide.


Each month we will feature a new city and a list of the best of the best.


First off is Winnipeg, Manitoba, home to our factory that manufactures all of our own upholstery pieces, our head office, and our retail store conveniently located beside our favorite mall, Polo Park.


Best Pizza: Vera Pizzeria


Located in South Osborne, Vera Pizza is a small pizzeria with an authentic Neapolitan taste. The pizza is beyond delicious and the intimate size of the restaurant feels like eating at home with friends. Plus our very own Merchandising/Store Planning Designer, Ben Borley built their wooden benches and chairs.

Best Date spot The Palm Lounge in the Fort Gary Hotel


The Palm Lounge (known by Winnipeggers as The Palm room) is the cozy, oval shaped lounge in the back of the historic chateau-inspired Fort Gary Hotel. Filled with giant armchairs, dark wood tables, a glittering chandelier and a live jazz pianist make it the perfect spot to bring a first date.



Via Bipedradio


Best outdoor market St Norbert Farmers Market


Open from May long weekend to the end of October, The St. Norbert Farmers Market is filled with locally grown produce, delicious fresh baking, homemade jams, crafts, jewelry, flowers and much more.


St Norbet

Via Food Matters Manitoba


Best running route: Wellington crescent / Wolseley loop


Run through Wellington Crescent to Assiniboine Park, or through to Armstrong Point/Wolseley for the most picturesque views of Winnipeg.


Minolta DSC

Via Sky Scraper City


Best Coffee Shop: Parlour Coffee


Located in Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District, Parlour Coffee serves and sells several of North America’s leading micro coffee roasters, with fresh baked goods delivered daily. Double plus the owner Nils Vik, is a former EQ3 Designer and product developer, having designed our still favorite Burrows Bedroom Collection.



Via Kaper22


Best brunch Park Café


The Park Café is the spacious restaurant situated in Assiniboine Park. Along with serving delicious Sunday brunch, this made our best of list for its beautiful architectural building. The café’s soaring windows from floor to ceiling make it the perfect spot to gaze into the park on a warm weekend.



Via University of Toronto


Best Architectural Building:  The Wag


With its unusual triangular shape and Tyndall stone exterior, the Winnipeg Art Gallery is one of the most beautifully crafted architectural buildings in Winnipeg.

Best music venue Burton Cummings Theater  


Named after Winnipeg musician, Burton Cummings, the Burton Cummings Theater is a Winnipeg staple and has hosted some of the greatest musical acts.



Via Snipview


Best Cocktail bar martinis at Rae and Jerry’s


The décor in Rae and Jerry’s is a total time warp with its dark wood paneling, red velvet walls, red vinyl booths, red oversized swivel chairs and red carpeting. The restaurant that has been around since 1957 has not changed a bit, which is why this is our favorite spot for a classic martini.



Via Winnipeglovehate


Best Patio Black Rabbit


Black Rabbit’s patio is tucked away behind their restaurant, filled with lush greenery, cascading vines, flowers and suspended lighting, making it the perfect spot day and night.

Behind the Scenes – EQ3 Fall/Winter 2015/16 Catalogue

Sep 25, 2015

Comments Off on Behind the Scenes – EQ3 Fall/Winter 2015/16 Catalogue

This year we took some of our favourite new and existing EQ3 pieces on the road and outfitted a secluded cabin in the heart of the Canadian Shield. Located 2 hours north of our Winnipeg-based manufacturing facility, the modern cabin became a perfect site to showcase the diversity of the EQ3 product line. The views are awe-inspiring, and give way to a fitting backdrop showcasing our Canadian made furniture, in an inherently Canadian location.


Our biggest challenge for this year’s F/W 2015/16 catalogue was getting our entire product line into this secluded cabin on Lake of the Woods!


Omg the  S T A I R S !!


Ok, well maybe not our entire product line but pretty close – with doubles and triples of certain pieces as well!


Without further ado – Behind the Scenes – EQ3 Fall/Winter 2015/16 Catalogue:
