NEWS FROM RAY
We are excited to inform you that Ray is moving! Our new office will be located at 455 Dovercourt Road just north of College Street. As we emerge from the pandemic, and like most of our clients, our spatial needs have changed and we were fortunate to find a space that suited our needs perfectly.
Our phone numbers and email addresses will remain the same. We will however be closed for business on the day of the move, July 28th, 2023 and will resume operations at our new location on July 31st, 2023. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to welcoming you to our new office. If you have any questions regarding our move, please do not hesitate to contact us.

This year marks Ray’s 35th year influencing Toronto’s commercial interior design scene. Thanks to our loyal clients, the real estate community, industry supporters, and of course our staff, for helping us reach this milestone!
We’ve seen our fair share of trends come and go, but what’s remained constant is our collective passion for design that works! We’re inspired to discover what innovations lie ahead.
Our industry judges have completed their independent scoring of all of this year’s nominations in each of the categories and have confirmed the top contenders in each. We are now very pleased to unveil our 2018 REmmy Awards finalists!
Polished concrete floor runs throughout ecobee’s new expansive and airy office with collaborative areas branching off the main corridors. Designed by Ray, park-like benches and bright green carpets establish more intimate meeting areas where teams can convene. Boardrooms maintain the space’s outdoor vibe, encased in steel factory-style windows.
THE VISION: Collaborating with design firm, Ray Inc., Ironbridge Equity Partners wanted their newly-acquired, 35th floor office space in downtown Toronto to have a much different look and feel than their previous more traditional offices of dark wooden doors and furniture and little access to natural light. Given a set budget, Ray Inc. was tasked with creating a bright and contemporary space for their client.
After almost 30 years in business, the founders of Raymond Chiappetta and Associates—a Toronto-based commercial interior designer—moved on and sold the business to two of its partners. Principals Joe Trozzo and Isabelle Talbot embraced the transition as an opportunity to update their brand, bring it in alignment with their personalities, and truly take ownership of how they’re seen in the market.
