Kohler Co. and EMCO Corporation Bring Design Inspiration to Toronto
Kohler Co. continues to expand its presence in North America with the opening of its new KOHLER Signature Store in the heart of Toronto’s Castlefield Design District.
Owned and operated by EMCO Corporation, an authorized Kohler Co. distributor and supporter since 1987, the store spans 4,000 square feet and embraces the neighbourhood’s industrial chic aesthetic.
“We are excited to partner with Kohler on another Signature Store location, and we believe Toronto is the ideal market to continue to grow,” said Tom Newell, regional VP and general manager for EMCO. “EMCO is dedicated to providing our customers with the best in quality and innovative plumbing products. We look forward to reinforcing our commitment to the thriving Toronto community by bringing this unique luxury shopping experience to your neighbourhood.”
The building is Kohler Canada’s first Signature Store in Ontario and the second in partnership with EMCO Corporation, with the other location in Vancouver.
As with all KOHLER Signature Stores, homeowners and designers have the opportunity to experience the Kohler Co. Family of Brands firsthand including Kohler Plumbing, Kohler Lighting, Kallista Plumbing, Robern, and Ann Sacks Tile and Stone.
“Creating a space that embraces the local design community and culture was imperative,” said Michelle Kilmer, business director Kohler Stores, Kitchen and Bath North America. “We’re thrilled with the result and are confident that the store associates will inspire creativity within our customers.”
The space’s sophisticated displays include elaborately designed suites and ensembles, working shower systems, lighted mirrors, intelligent toilets, and KOHLER Konnect products.
Each display suite allows customers to envision the different collections in their own bathrooms and provides an array of design options, from contemporary to transitional to traditional.
The KOHLER Signature Store offers online bathroom design services including product selection, design development, and 3-D renderings for homeowners needing visualization and project support.
