Last month we introduced you to #EQ3ingoodcompany, a new hashtag celebrating our EQ3+ product line, a collection of design classics including Herman Miller, Marimekko, Pablo and more. This month, we take a closer look at this vibrant history of Marimekko.
Last month we introduced #designwithEQ3, a new hashtag dedicated to celebrating the diversity of our products in your homes. At EQ3, customization is at the heart of what we do. Our collection of upholstery is available in 130+ fabrics and leathers, while our collection of casegoods are often available in multiple , sizes, configurations finishes and materials. The beauty of this is that no two rooms will ever look the same. To highlight this, and to share your style, we encourage you to tag your photos #designwithEQ3 on Instagram. Every photo shared has the chance to be featured on our social channels, website, blog and more! And at the end of each month we’ll share our picks in a monthly roundup on the blog.
Enjoy the best from October!
A project for small-scale living, the Eve sofa collection was introduced in 2013. Before its conception, EQ3’s upholstery line did not include any feather-filled sofas. “Everyone thought it was too expensive,” says EQ3 Upholstery Manager, Enri Tielmann. “Feather components are a higher-end approach.” Considerable research, innovation and testing made it possible to launch the new feather-filled sofa at an affordable price-point, and since then has become one of EQ3’s most popular collections.
Made in collaboration with New York-based designer Blake Tovin, EQ3’s new Remi Sofa Collection launched in the spring of 2016.
“We wanted to bridge mid-century modern inspiration with contemporary modern,” says Enri Tielmann, Upholstery Product Manager at EQ3. “To achieve this we offered two back options: the button-tufted back is a reference to the mid-century modern era, whereas the line-pull provides a contemporary look. However you define your style, both versions can work beautifully in the home – simply let your preference guide your choice.
In 2002, Boobyball was launched 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. More than 10 years later, Boobyball has become one of Canada’s most coveted and high profile fundraising events for young philanthropists in Toronto, Calgary, Winnipeg and Ottawa. Over the past 14 years, the event has raised over $3.8 million for Rethink Breast Cancer.
EQ3 is proud to sponsor this special cause for the second year in a row, partnering with the Winnipeg and now Calgary events. For partygoers, take a break from the dance floor at one of our furniture pods, scattered throughout the event. Don’t worry if you get too comfy! Every event gift bag will come with an EQ3 coupon card exclusive to Boobyball attendees, valid for a limited time.
To inspire your palette for this year’s events, we’ve pulled some of our favourite EQ3 pieces in the theme of Paradise City. We hope to see you there!
