Staff Picks for Summer

We couldn't be more excited about summer! The season that is so eagerly awaited makes us shift gears and think about outdoor entertaining and activities, travel, and time for family and friends. At Bergo, summer means welcoming visitors from all over the world to our Distillery District store and helping them pick out something useful (and memorable) for themselves or to gift. While we don't play favourites, we definitely have our picks. We'd like to share some of our favourite products for an inspired summer.

 

CRAIG suggets the Brus Carbonator from Stelton. Because who doesn't like a cold carbonated drink on a hot day? He also loves the sleek design that makes it a standout on your counter or bar cart.

 

While we're on the topic of summer refreshments, MARY recommends the Tea Jay Iced Tea Maker from Blomus. Iced tea is her go-to drink all summer and the Tea Jay is perfect for brewing loose tea leaves, customizing with fruit or syrups, and is sophisticated for serving. 
TEA JAY ICED TEA MAKER / MOONBEAM & MAGNET $178 / STAINLESS STEEL $156

 

The ultimate summer refreshment is ice cream, and BRAYDEN's pick is the Koki Ice Cream Scoop from Alessi. He likes the the sleek, simple, and ergonomic design which makes scooping even the hardest ice cream effortless and enjoyable. 

 

 

SAMEEHA thinks that candies from Sugarfina's La Dolce Vita Collection are another sweet treat for the season. The limited edition packaging and flavours like Stracciatella Gelato, Italian Spritz, and Lemon Biscotti transport her to Italy without boarding a plane. 
 
Being outdoors and soaking up the sun is a real treat after months of winter. JAKE feels that everyone needs a pair of stylish, budget-friendly sunglasses. Izipizi Sunglasses provide Category 3 100%UV protection against harmful rays. These unisex glasses, designed in France, look chic and are a summer must-have for everyone.

 

It's a beautiful summer day. Don your sunglasses and head out for a hike! JACKIE enjoys long walks and thinks that the Corkcicle Sling is the ideal accessory to help you stay hydrated. It will hold your water bottle, keeping your hands free, and a padded zipped pocket can hold essentials like keys, cash, or even snacks to keep you going.

 

While out in nature you may be inspired to capture the scenery. SERTAC likes to release his inner artist with paints from the Studio Series from Peter Pauper Press. The Water Colour Paint set includes a selection of twenty-four hues that he loves, and the artist quality paints, pencils, and pastels from the series are affordably priced.

 

Speaking of colour, summer is the perfect time to bring out the vivid hues. CELENNE has her eye on the Sister Rosetta Pitchers from Mario Luca Giusti. Crafted with Giusti’s durable synthetic crystal, they’re ideal for outdoor entertaining. Available in four eye-catching colours, her only question is which one!

SISTER ROSETTA PITCHER / $198

 

INÊS loves jewellery and accessorizes with bright colours during the summer. The unique 3D printed designs from Maison 203’s Athena Collection are her choice for a fun, bold look for the season.

ATHENA COLLECTION BRACELET / $156

 

We think your outdoor space should reflect your style. DOUG is intrigued by the design of the new Blomus Iris Lamp. Take this unique lamp from room to room, or outside. Doug is already planning on relaxing by the soft glow of the Iris Lamp on his terrace with a G&T, watching the sun go down and the city lights come up. 
IRIS LAMP / $322

 

Because it’s not just a container, it’s a piece of art that enhances the joy of the moment, SOURENA makes the Sky Hip Flask from Georg Jensen his pick. With its sleek stainless steel finish and luxurious leather accent, each sip from it feels like a summer celebration.

 

 

SKY HIP FLASK / $119

 

Make your indoor space smell like summer with MILENA's pick, the Glasshouse Fragrances Sunkissed in Bermuda Candle. To her, with the candle's notes of tangelo and geranium, the candle smells like a perfect summer day. 

 

Summer is beach season and Jellycat's plush rendition of the everyone's favourite seaside structure, the sandcastle, makes GUILHERME smile. Part of their Amuseable Collection, this in-demand Sandcastle can be enjoyed all year long.
