The ABCs of Room 2046
Another academic year is already in full swing, but there is always time to reinforce the basics. Let's review the ABCs of Room 2046, a multidisciplinary set of values that encompass just who we are as a brand.
The pen is mightier than the iPad. There is something magical about scrawling a pen across paper. Whether it's an agenda, notebook, or greeting card your handwriting says a lot about you and doesn't require a power cord.
Is a library ever finished? No, it never is. Expand your collection of fabulous hardcover coffee-table books on topics ranging from design, architecture, fashion, film, and history. Once you have all your spines in a row, accent the shelf with worldly bookends.
Almost every task we do in-store is usually done with a Valmonté (vanilla-almond milk-latté) in hand, even now as I type. Sipping coffee and shopping our products are commonplace for Room 2046. We offer premium espresso based drinks to our customers that keep them focused while making important purchasing decisions.
D.I.Y. or Die! We believe in challenging ourselves by doing as much as possible in-house as a means for empowerment and productivity. Taking things one step further, Room 2046 has developed a line of goods including t-shirts, throw pillows, and candles.
Away we go! We like to keep our shelves lined with internationally inspired design. The globe-trotter is always in need of stylish and functional travel products. Alternatively, feed your wanderlust with books that let you explore the world from your living room.
Lunch time is probably the highlight of all our days, as we spend a good chunk of the day dreaming about or snacking on all kinds of food. It's no surprise we love to share our cravings through beautiful products that will fill you up.
Generosity is what it's all about. It doesn't have to be a special occasion to brighten someone's day. Room 2046 likes to go above and beyond with gift bundles and free gift wrapping. Any of our products are sure to make a unique and treasured gift for years to come.
Sick rhymes and dope tracks are most often heard over the speakers in Room 2046. A constant source of inspiration, the urban poets of hip-hop, rap and R&B keep us lit all day long and even inspire a selection of our products like the Paper Jam Press posters.
Considered the most important part of the creative process, inspiration is not hard to find in Room 2046. It's our mission to develop a world of unseen delights and out-of-the-box source material to get your own creative juices flowing.
In life it's important to shine bright like a diamond! Jewelry is a constant on the shelves of Room 2046 because of its ability to make anyone feel rich and powerful, plus it always fits! Come sample our bling ring with edgy and one-of-a-kind pieces.
A general rule of thumb is if you shrink an item and/or give it a bright-eyed smile it becomes irresistibly adorable and we fall for it every time. Room 2046 is full of sweet things that will have you squealing with delight all day long.
Here's to the finer things in life. As a discerning shopper you know that choosing the luxurious option always yields greater bliss. We want to enable you to live life at a higher standard with products that offer extra in the ways of form and function.
Enter the void of detail and discover a world of clean lines and whitespace. Having less to focus on allows you to appreciate the understated beauty of the minimal. This is a recurring theme in Room 2046, from housewares to jewelry to stationery one thing remains true: less is more.
We keep it au naturel, in case you couldn't tell. Proudly offering apothecary products that use less harmful chemicals and more super ingredients found in nature. All of our candles are made with soy wax for a clean burn and no carcinogens. Some of our soaps contain less ingredients than a PB&J sandwich, which result in a healthier, happier you.
No stranger to standing out, we are always trying to find the freshest looks to keep you ahead of the trends. With several designers making their debuts on our racks, you are able to proclaim that you set the trend and looked good doing it.
Ever since you uttered your first curse word the world has been trying to censor you, but sometimes you need strong words to express strong feelings. Room 2046 is a proud purveyor of profanity offering greeting cards that don't hold back.
Room 2046 is a concept shop with an emphasis on quality craftsmanship. We scour the world to find expert designers and craftspeople who put extra care into all principals of construction and superb materials. After all, quality is always better than quantity.
We know how frustrating it can be to shop for that person who already has everything, which is why we make it our mission to find fresh items that are otherwise hard to find in Toronto (and the world). By allowing smaller brands a chance to be discovered in store and online we hope to share our love of the unique.
As in keep it simple, stupid; it honestly works every time, and will save you time. We love to stock products that take the complexity out of your hectic life by streamlining your day into realizing that the simplest answer is often the right one.
Some people have a sweet tooth, we might have a sweet mouth. Nothing is better than treating yourself to a piece of designer chocolate as part of a balanced meal. We stock next-level treats in our café in shop from artisans who go above and beyond.
A perfect pairing is a blessing in this world. When things fit together harmoniously, there's magic in the air. Whether it's an expression of true love, or just a greeting card that matches a gift too well to pass up, Room 2046 is all about making connections.
Lots of customers are surprised and delighted to find out we produce our own short films. We use these films as a means to show how our products weave into everyday life while telling a compelling and often cheeky narrative.
Adding a touch of whimsy to your home is a great way to show your personal style and can take any plain space into a realm of fun and excitement. Plus it's always great to have a conversation piece on display for your next party.
To be xenial is to create an environment of hospitality. This is our standard approach to customer service, we are dedicated to fostering a welcoming environment that will encourage you to sip, shop, sit and enjoy your stay as you enjoy a comfy chair and a warm latte.
Being able to retain your child-like sense of wonder is precious in a bland world. We try to capture that youthful feeling with our products suited for those young and old alike who want to colour their world.
It's quite evident on our Instagram account our genuine excitement for new products. We also try to challenge ourselves to strive for better customer service with a positive attitude and a personal touch.
Now you know your ABCs, next time won't you shop with Room 2046?
