Zara Home opens in Canada today. I went to a preview last night at the Yorkdale store. I must admit that it is very cool. There’s a great selection of objects to suit any decor and any lifestyle situation (although it does lean more toward a European sensibility). Because it is fast home fashion, so the price points are very affordable and on trend. I liked how the objects in the collection were displayed more as vignettes than clustered together by category (ie. Blankets with blankets, glasses with glasses) — it provided a more inspiring shopping experience when you could sort of picture how things would look in your house. It also provided anxiety for me because I wanted to buy everything, bit need nothing.
If I were to go back and splurge, below are the things I would totally buy. If you are in Canada, but not near a store, you can also shop online.
