Avenue Road's new online platform Stocked offers a selection of in-stock furnishings, accessories and home objets.

With showrooms and concept spaces in Toronto, Vancouver, New York and Miami, Avenue Road is upping its retail presence with a new e-commerce platform. Called Stocked, it offers a selection of in-stock furnishings, accessories and home objets. “Many of the bespoke products we carry are often accompanied by typical lead times of many weeks,” company founder and president Stephan Weishaupt says. “This highly edited selection allows us to cater to our clients’ more immediate needs and deliver some of our most sought after pieces to shoppers quickly.”

In its Toronto and Vancouver showrooms, Avenue Road has shifted to a by-appointment model.

Avenue Road was launched in Toronto in 2007 and stocks a selection of pieces from global designer stars including Sebastian Herkner, Yabu Pushelberg, Christophe Delcourt and Bruno Moinard. Online, the ready-to-ship items come with Avenue Road’s signature level of customer service; every order placed is followed up by a member of the store’s sales team to confirm all shipping and logistics. “We are excited to see this as an opportunity to meet the multifaceted needs of our clients and to continually evolve the ways in which we serve them,” Weishaupt says.

In person, that evolution has recently led to more individualized service. When its showrooms in Toronto and Vancouver reopened in May, Avenue Road shifted to a by-appointment model, something Weishaupt says will remain in place for the foreseeable future. “We see this as a way to create more personalized experiences and foster deeper connections.”
