LoversLand reached out to Castor Design to create a bridal salon that stands apart from the ordinary boutique. The front of the space is pared down and sleek, with white walls and piping connecting shelves, lighting, and lace curtained change areas. At the back of the shop is a tented space called The Haven, a by-appointment place for one-on-one fittings and style consultations. While providing privacy for those inside, it also builds a sense of excitement to peer through the seam as you enter your own secret fort. Above the staircase is an installation of bulbs arranged in the letters “XO” and lit through induction. The store is located at 215 Ossington Ave., Toronto.

Using a beaver-chewed log found outside of Sudbury, ON as a positive, the Castor Lodge Candle Holder is cast from solid aluminum. A black patina has been applied to the casting in order to accentuate the bark’s texture, as well as the tooth marks. The Candle Holder stands approximately 5″ high, and fits a standard 7/8″ diameter dinner candle.
