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!

Inspired by the word arie, the German translation for the Italian word aria, which represents a musical piece composed for a soloist, the Arie Chair was intended to be the single piece in a space that brings personality. This week, in part two of our four-part series, The Making Of, we’ll take a closer look at the inspiration behind and making of Arie.
In 2001, EQ3 was founded with a simple mission: To make modern furniture accessible. Over the past 15 years we’ve built an offering of custom upholstery, made-to-order in Winnipeg, Canada. This model has allowed us to offer countless configurations and over 130+ fabric and leather options, so that your sofa or sectional reflects your needs and personal style.
At EQ3, we celebrate our custom-upholstery program every October. We pay homage to the talented designers and skilled craftspeople that embrace the authenticity, compassion and ethical responsibility that define what it means to be Canadian. This October, in a new blog series, The Making Of, we’ll take you behind the scenes on the making some of the upholstery collections that are so unique to EQ3. First to be featured, the Reverie Collection.
New for fall 2016, the Marcel Bedroom Collection has a classic mid-century modern feel. Made from walnut and walnut veneer, the rich wood-grain is warm and inviting.
