Boobyball

Nov 3, 2015

Comments Off on Boobyball

This year, EQ3 was invited to join in supporting one of the most coveted and high profile fundraising events, Boobyball. Boobyball was launched in 2002 by a group of dedicated young women in support of their friend Sarah O’Regan, who at just 23 years old was diagnosed with aggressive, advanced breast cancer. This event has succeeded in bringing breast health awareness to the forefront and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it!

 

In preparation for the event, we decided to pull some of our classic pieces in Boobyball pink!

Spiced Vanilla Tea

Now that the weather is getting colder, I’m frequently drinking warm beverages. Why not drink a warm beverage that will also warm you up!?

 

Start with a vanilla flavoured Earl Grey teabag – or add a small dash of vanilla extract to your mug or teapot, and use regular Earl Grey. For each cup of tea your brewing, add the following directly to your teapot or mug:

 

½ oz Spiced Rum
¼ oz Grand Marnier, or orange liqueur
1 t honey

 

Drop in the teabag(s) and add boiling water. Steep, stir, sip, toasty!

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.

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.

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.

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!
