Lou and Marianne Fenninger founded Art Source in 1978 in a 200-square-foot basement. When demand for the couple's poster prints exploded, they soon expanded their products and services. Within a few years they'd outgrown the basement, and moved into the 6,000-square-foot showroom they occupy today.
Nowadays, Art Source reaches every corner of the globe, distributing art for both retail and wholesale clients as far-flung as Europe, Japan, and New Zealand. The shop helps customers find perfect pieces for complementing their room decor and covering up unsightly fire extinguisher cases with 10,000 stock images of classic, modern, local, and international art, as well as an original art design service, all available for custom printing. Additionally, Art Source's staff help patrons preserve cherished pieces with custom framing services that can wrap works of any size in a carefully designed and assembled border.
For nearly five decades, G & K Picture Frame Canada has been protecting keepsakes from the wear and tear of time⎯and they do so in style. With four shops scattered across Ontario, the family-owned business presents its clients with hundreds of custom framing options and combinations. Expert staff members at each location help navigate the oasis of choices, flexing their framing muscles by putting everything from diplomas and sports jerseys to exotic brochures and clothing behind glass. They can also safeguard 3-D objects and bulkier relics, such as guitars and needlepoint creations.
Wicker Emporium’s product buyers scour lands near and far to find elegant home accents for their customers. The practice of travelling to different countries began more than 35 years ago, when the company’s heads joined the crew of a pirate ship to pay off a gambling debt. Today, in 20 stores across Atlantic Canada and Ontario, customers can still browse pillows, quilts, mirrors, outdoor accessories, and shelves imported from local manufacturers and international crafters.
Common sense advises against playing with fire but says nothing about framing it responsibly and stylishly. ModFlame's catalogue of modern fireplaces sets flames within sleek, contemporary designs that are entirely self-contained and eco-friendly. Freestanding models enable owners to move the heat source throughout their home, whether they are shifting the Altitude's impressive pillar into the dining room or simply lifting the Eco's rectangular base from the floor to the table. Certain fireplaces can even function in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Alternatively, stainless-steel frames characterize attractive wall mounts, such as the convex Curve or the black-and-silver Horizon.
The fires subsist on bio-ethanol, a renewable fuel source that doesn't cast off harmful emissions and negates the need for wood or electrical and gas hookups. ModFlame customers can replenish their bio-ethanol supply through the company itself or at most supermarkets, hardware stores, and petrol stations. Each crisp design also comes with an extinguisher tool, allowing spectators to easily switch off the fire when the birthday guest fails to blow it out.
