While crowds may flock to this annual film festival’s red carpets to get a glimpse of Hollywood actors, we’re always more starstruck to see our favourite furniture make cameos in future Oscar contenders. Take the mid-century modern apartment of Ryan Gosling’s character in last year’s People’s Choice Award-winning La LaLand, for example. The hip pad paired a Smeg fridge with a timeless Gubi Grasshopper lamp.
While at the TIFF Bell Lightbox for this year, don’t miss Canadian artist Zeesy Powers’ 40-metre mural running along King Street West. The massive new artwork depicts the Entertainment District’s vibrant history and will remain until the King Blue development by Greenland Group (Canada) is completed in 2019.
