Bootstrap provides the Toronto market with high-tech window films that change from translucent to opaque with the flip of a switch. Whether for privacy (or an instant whiteboard) in an office, or for privacy in picture windows in high-rises or houses close to the curb, modern smart films allow you to quickly switch back to a clear window with a wall switch.
Engineered, manufactured and installed 200 two by nine foot solid ash panels throughout Campari's new Toronto headquarters. Matching doors were seamlessly installed into the wall panels to create a continuous look. Each panel was cut and installed to fit the varying heights of the ceiling above.
Hand crafted, solid ash wall panels function as a clothing rack and shelf system with carefully positioned dowel holes. We built a custom point of sale cabinet with matching ash panels. We engineered and built a unique clothing rack using solid maple dowels.
Hired by Spin Ping Pong bar to create sturdy food and drink tables. We opted to construct the tables using a box joint (aka finger joint) that will ensure they hold up to wear and tear and we think look cool as well.
Upgraded the stairwell to this King Street commerical building including a complete paint job, new designer glass main entrance, office doors and vinyl flooring.
One of our custom tables was featured in an add for Scarborough Town Centre.

The vision for this unique furniture created for Drake's new music studio came to us by upcoming design studio I-V. Less than a millimetre thick, the Formica laminate surfacing demands great care in application, cutting & finishing. Using Baltic Birch as a substrate for utmost strength the cabinets were fully constructed then taken apart for laminating. The result was a beautifully crafted side board and 2 end-tables, streamlined, giving no evidence of their construction and showing no signs of fastening devices.
A tight time-line and modest budget made this cafe project very rewarding - Bootstrap likes a challenge! We created a beautiful service bar out of salvaged bowling lane maple. Cost-effective clear pine, in a Japanese shoji style design provided additional accents throughout the space. Additional dead-stock from materials from Habitat for Humanity's Re-Store and other re-used materials made our environmentally conscious client very happy.
Working closely with a talented & well established decorator, we completed at top-to-bottom design & renovation of a 2 bedroom home. Behind the walls we provided sound-proofing, upgraded insulation, levelled floors & ceilings and installed sub-floor heating. The bath was enlarged to include a luxurious soaker-tub enclosed in book-matched marble. A separate marble & glass shower offset custom cabinetry & porcelain floor tiles. The master bedroom featured a custom walk-in closet featuring hand-built mirror pocket doors. The new kitchen design connected the space to the dining area, provided a dropped marble counter & backsplash and a Wiarton stone floor. The living room included 4 lacquer painted pilasters which framed an early 20th century landscape painting across from which is 12 foot custom built-in cabinet. All millwork was designed & completed by Bootstrap.
