Leslieville’s Black Rooster Decor has teamed up with Oben Flats to launch Oben Shops by Black Rooster Decor.
The furnishings retailer and award-winning boutique rental property developer — which burst onto Toronto’s scene a few years ago with a modernist design sensibility and a highly livable Leslieville property — will bring contemporary, high-end furniture, lighting and decor to the design-conscious individuals.
The inaugural Oben Shops collection features stylish, quality furniture and accessories selected for vertical city living and specifically tailored for small spaces.
“I’m so excited to offer this collection and bring the experience of luxury living to a wider audience beyond the walls of Oben Flats properties,” says Nina Ber-Donkor, owner of Black Rooster Decor. “I fell in love with Oben Flats’ modern architecture and chic boutique-style interiors so much that I not only live in one of their buildings, but I also relocated Black Rooster Decor to its Leslieville property.
The debut ranges from multipurpose to contemporary pieces, and is inspired by the Oben Flats lifestyle — urban jungle living meets European flair. The selections highlights North American businesses and artisans while offering the same quality products that has put Black Rooster Decor on the design map.
“We stumbled across Black Rooster Decor when we started construction at our Leslieville site. As soon as we walked in I knew their aesthetic would be a seamless fit with our brand vision,” says Yasmine Battiston, director at Oben Flats. “We first engaged them through staging projects for our properties… we eventually approached them with the idea of working together, and knew they would be perfect collaborators in realizing our vision.“
