Angelo Simone had worked for a prominent Toronto furniture company for years, and knew the industry like the back of his hand. His wife, Ginette Simone, originally from small-town Quebec, was in the home décor business as well, specializing in boutique merchandising. It was in 1986 that the couple, alongside Angelo’s brother, decided to take the leap, mesh their talents and found their own retail furniture company — and Martin Daniel Interiors was born.
What began as a tiny team of three passionate entrepreneurs soon ballooned into an iconic Toronto brand. The Simone family’s dedication to curating the finest handmade furnishings from Europe drew in Toronto’s affluent homeowners, and it was the family’s genuine client care that kept them coming back.
Thirty years later, Martin Daniel Interiors is now run by Angelo, Ginette and their two children Valerie and Martin, and is the preferred source for luxury furniture and accessories, not only in Toronto but across Canada and internationally. The family-run company gives clients the best of both worlds: the intimacy and care of a small, independent boutique, and the diverse and exciting experience of a highly connected international décor destination, with a network of Europe’s finest artisans and manufacturers — 80 per cent of which are exclusive to Martin Daniel Interiors.
As Toronto continues to establish itself as a world-renowned design destination, Martin Daniel Interiors is proud to be a long-standing member of its diverse and affluent furniture industry. With its roots firmly planted in authentic European design, Martin Daniel Interiors plans to continue its legacy of importing the finest pieces from Europe — primarily Italy and Spain — while staying true to the North American lifestyle and design experience.
