Industrial Luxe in Toronto: Quince Bistro

Issue 20 · The Northern Light · May 18, 2012

The recently overhauled interiors of Quince, a neighborhood bistro in the heart of midtown Toronto, feature an understated glamor, thanks to walls lined with antiqued mirrors, ornate architectural fragments used as decor, rows of gleaming copper pots, and subtle graffiti touches.

Commute, a hard-to-categorize firm in Toronto (we've admired their work before; see Commute in Toronto), oversaw the redesign; for more information, go to Quince Bistro.
