MUJI Yorkdale’s Interior Advisor service wants to help you simplify your home so you can focus on what matters.


Willie Lam Interior Advisor at MUJI Yorkdale

MUJI’s recently opened Yorkdale location is offering a new Interior Advisor service to connect customers with a selection of housewares and help them decorate their homes. This service has been receiving rave reviews in Japan for years, but Yorkdale is the first MUJI location in Canada to offer the Interior Advisor service.

A lot of people’s first experience of MUJI comes through the brand’s simple yet remarkably stylish stationery and clothing lines. Both are designed around the idea that the environment we live in greatly influences our lifestyle. MUJI believes that a simpler, more compact environment can help us to minimize distractions and focus on the most important aspects of our lives.

This mantra of simplifying your environment to simplify your life is most powerful when applied to the housewares that we rely on every day: the desks we work at and the beds we sleep in.

It’s in deference to the impact your desk can have on how well you work that MUJI introduced the Interior Advisor service. Anyone can pick out minimalist furniture from the local Scandinavian retailer, but MUJI’s Interior Advisor service gives an understanding, human face to minimalist Japanese design.

Yorkdale’s Interior Advisor Willie Lam has been a believer in MUJI’s minimalist brand since well before it arrived on Canadian shores. MUJI first made an impact on Willie when he was introduced to the brand in Southeast Asia some six years ago. Willie joined the company two years ago, and the move felt like the perfect combination of his personal, minimalist design esthetic and his years of professional training in Environmental Design.

Right in the store, he can create a customized 3D model of the space you’re looking to furnish and visualize how the pieces of furniture you’re considering will fit there. Then, once you’ve found the layout and pieces that work best for you, he can arrange for the fur- niture you choose to be delivered to your door.

The Interior Advisor service is available at no additional charge from the MUJI Yorkdale location. To book your consultation with Willie, simply stop by the store or call ahead and ask for the Interior Advisor.
