Umbra home design products are sold in 75 countries, but the company settled in its hometown of Toronto to open its first freestanding store.
The 7,000-square-foot unit launched at 165 John Street — not far from where childhood friends and company founders Les Mandelbaum and Paul Rowan started selling their blinds in 1979. Umbra is the Latin word for "shade."
