Story Time, Behind the Scenes of Designing Global Showroom, Halifax, Nova Scotia
Global Contract furniture group is a proudly Canadian owned and manufactured furniture company with headquarters in North Toronto, Ontario. With offices across Canada, it was time for Global’s location in Halifax to transition into a new space. As a proudly Canadian owned business as well, SGH Design Partners was happy to be retained by Global to help design and construct a furniture showroom to service the Atlantic Region.
The centralized location in Halifax, Nova Scotia was important for the showroom as they have many customers who they service within the city, but also were looking at providing a space for events, training, and gatherings for the design community. This new space is located on the ocean front with views into the Halifax harbour. A beautiful space full of natural light, the new office location of 5,000 sq.ft. was designed with flexibility and an open concept design in mind. As a showroom, Global required a space that could adapt as their products evolved over time. The new space is bright and vibrant, with an open and flexible floor plan which allows the Global team to respond to changing design trends and customer needs.
