Before Beaconsfield Village bohemians had an embassy, Thrush Holmes had an empire and the Trinity Bellwoods white squirrel had its own Way, Studio Brillantine was holding down the corner of Queen and Dovercourt. For 11 years it’s been a destination for modern nesters shopping stark-to-quirky design stuff. Their trail is a little over-blazed these days, so at the end of July Studio Brillantine moves west to Queen and Sorauren. That gives you just over a month to pick up a parting gift and, in the spirit of flying the coop, may we suggest this pair of avian Alessi salt and pepper shakers? $63, 1082½ Queen West, 416-536-6521, studiobrillantine.com.
