Using extra time to tackle projects at home? A new local service is making it easier for those interested in updating their space while the province’s response to the COVID-19 crisis keeps many safely indoors. 

Mio’s Furniture Fashion’s temporary showroom closure has sparked a new virtual shopping and consultation service that allows people to stay home and stay safe while addressing their home design needs. 

“Our main concern is for people to continue to practice physical distancing and stay safe,” says Mio’s owner, Javad Ghassemkhani (Jav). “We are encouraging everyone to follow the advice of healthcare professionals as the COVID-19 pandemic develops.”

“We also want to make sure we’re here for our clients and our community if they have any needs when it comes to furniture fashions and interior design - or, to simply answer any questions our clients might have. So we’ve made available new virtual services and more ways to connect to create the safe and simple access to our showroom and to expert advice for people looking for design ideas.”

4 simple steps to using your virtual concierge:

  1. View our online inventory

  2. Book a phone or video consultation online

  3. Text or call (705) 542-3137

  4. Email

Mio’s recently launched a new program called Ask Jav, your virtual furniture concierge. The program is based on a simple premise; if you have any questions about furniture or interior design, just reach out and ask Jav. Ask Jav offers digital access to Mio’s showroom and services through text, email, phone and free video consultations. 

“Safe, simple and personal, with a local touch – that’s what we had in mind with this service,” says Jav. “Everyone in our community is being impacted by this challenging time. If we can be there for our clients, it’s the least we can do.”

Mio’s contactless services include:

  • Dedicated pick-up and loading zones
  • Free local curbside delivery
  • Custom furniture for delivery (customization takes approximately 8-10 weeks)
  • Fabric and wood samples for assurance of colour
  • 2D/3D design available to help you visualize your space
  • Free 30-minute consultations that can be booked online

In the advent of Mio’s temporary physical store closure and launch of Ask Jav, the local furniture shop has updated their virtual showroom which now features over 80 per cent of their inventory to offer a more complete online shopping experience. 

For more information on products, financing options and discounted pricing visit or call Jav at 705-542-3137.
