Behind the name "ATTICA"

Attica was one of the cultural centres of Greece during the Early Iron Age. It was a time when the beautiful was part of everyday life; it was not set aside for special occasions or confined to objects of particular merit. The beautiful was not only for the major arts of architecture, painting, and sculpture, but all the minor ones as well - furniture, vases, and common household objects.

At Attica Furnishings, this tradition continues. Our modern concept of beauty is clean lines without unnecessary adornment. Let their beautiful become part of your everyday life.

It’s exciting times for the perpetually winning Attica Furnishings—not only another slam-dunk for Best Furniture and Best Home Decor, but a big move across town from its multi-tiered Barrington Street abode to a flatter flat at Robie and Young. “Four floors was fun at the beginning, for the first couple weeks,” says co-owner Suzanne Saul. The new digs is also conveniently on a major traffic corridor. It’s a smart strategy for new customers, but don’t worry, Attica is still all about the love. “It’s actually more of a passion for design than it is about being a business person,” says Saul.

Premiere Suites has been working closely with Attica, and owner Suzanne Saul, for close to a decade and we attribute much our design success to this mutually beneficial relationship built on respect and common vision. Suzanne delivers excellent and timely custom client service, and strives to always work within a defined budget. When Attica launched their flagship store on Barrington Street many years ago, it helped to revitalize the area that was in much need of some new life. Driven to success, Attica expanded into all four floors of the building and made Barrington Street a destination to shop for home, office and commercial space.

Attica strives to feature a wide range of furniture and décor items in all price points to ensure there is something for everyone. Now 10 years later they have just relocated to a larger store on Robie, near Young Street to best service the growing demand from their wide range of community clients.
