Meet Your Neighbour: The Nest

The Nest in Collingwood Downtown is a bright, fresh boutique furniture and home design store that offers a unique blend of contemporary design and timeless elegance. When you step through the door, you immediately sense a very serene vibe and you can start to imagine creating the background for the best life you can have in the most important space that you have – your home, your nest.

“We spent months and months curating the space, so it really feels like home.” explains Jamie. “We intentionally offer a soft palette of colours to choose from so our customers can start to imagine how the furniture and home décor items we offer can either enhance their existing space or furnish a blank canvass. It’s all about maximizing comfort without sacrificing design”. she continues.  In addition to offering home furnishings, The Nest also provides design consultation services and offers window treatment solutions.

Co-owners Jamison (Jamie) Hanna, Krystian Skruch, Krista Hay and Jonathan Farrugia have recently acquired and re-opened The Nest after completely revamping the existing space.  First neighbours, then friends and now in business together, the four partners each bring unique skillsets to the table. Krista, who has a passion for interior design, is involved in the business development side of the business and the one that you will see day to day at the store. Jamie manages the social media and marketing side of the business. She also shares a passion for interior design and brings experience in sales. Jon, who is also the owner of Peak Plumbing and Mechanical Services, is involved behind the scenes managing finances and assisting with local deliveries. Krystian, who brings a strong business background, has worked with many furniture e-commerce companies, and handles the tech side of the business.

“We’re really looking forwarding to enhancing our existing website to better showcase our inventory with a goal of selling to Canadians across the country.” he says.  “Having four of us shoulder the workload works very well. We love collaborating as we move the business forward.”

Located at the corner of Hume and Hurontario Streets, The Nest sees both long-time residents looking to revamp their existing space as well as an influx of young families that have moved into the area to raise their families, coming into the store. “We love being in business in downtown Collingwood.  It’s a great place to raise a family, enjoy all the outdoor activities that are available to us in the area and there are so many like-minded young entrepreneurs in the area that are setting up businesses.  We feel really welcome and we’re steps away from so many great restaurants, shops and services.” says Jamie.

The next time you’re looking for inspiration, design advice, home décor, accessories and gifts, pop into The Nest.  You just might find that special piece to make your nest the best nest.
