independent small business
We are a team of two, both from an arts and design background. We have enjoyed 25 years and counting creating exceptional products, customer service and retail / cafe environments in downtown Toronto and more recently in Muskoka, Canada.
Inspired by the juxtapose of luxury & comfort to rustic & rugged, our products & environments have paid much attention to our connection for both lifestyles in the city and in nature.
Where rustic meets today's lifestyle, Lavish&Squalor was home to a curated eclectic mix of fashion, decor, spa and cafe. Set in a restored historic garment factory, L&S treated their customers with floor to ceiling of quality local and premium branded merchandise.
2020, L&S closed it's doors during the pandemic on Queen Street West, but continues their brand and other products in shop online.
Until we meet again Toronto...
Spending childhood going to the cottage in Muskoka,
it was a natural desire after 20 years in city retail to create something special up north.
In 2017 we opened the Trading Post Cabin, serving up delicious gourmet sandwiches and premium coffee drinks mixed with 'Cabin life' curated gifts and decor.
Creating the Cabin Outpost mobile concept, you can now visit a scaled version of all your Cabin favourites to and from your Muskoka adventures.
Cabin Creature Comforts: material comforts that contribute to physical ease and well-being, such as good food and good vibes.
Inventing and showcasing on trend products, foods & drinks.
