WEST ELM: A North-American leader in furniture and home decoration, located in King Liberty, Toronto. Trial has completed over 40 stores for WEST ELM over the last seven years, mainly in the United States. WEST ELM boutiques are generally between 10,000 and 12,000 sq. ft., each requiring about 2,500 hours to complete.
SPECIAL CHALLENGES: This boutique was one of the first “green” shopping centres in Toronto. Trial supplied architectural elements for the boutique as well as interior furnishings which were FSC-certified and allowed for the accumulation of LEED points. The challenge was to ensure that the project used an abundance of environmentally friendly materials in an effort to respect LEED standards and obtain FSC certification.
AWARDS: One of the projects we completed for West Elm received the NASFM Design Award.
