The silver-painted Elvis impersonator who busks at Yonge and Dundas is no longer the corner’s most glam attraction. Nordstrom has arrived in Toronto and is decorating its new digs with a flashy touch courtesy of Moss & Lam. Best known for creating ethereal installations and wall treatments for such hospitality heavyweights as the Four Seasons, the design firm here built a snowstorm-esque ceiling mobile composed of thousands of gold- and silver-coloured metal mesh sheets and mirrored PVC.

260 Yonge St 416 552 2900  Mon-Fri 10-9:30, Sat 9:30-9:30, Sun 10-7. nordstrom.ca
