In 1965, Klaus Nienkämper, Sr., moved here from Germany with $36 in his pocket. Three years later, he became the first Torontonian to import contemporary European furniture. In the ’80s, the importer established an eponymous line of locally made pieces that were streamlined, elegant, and timeless. Today, Klaus Nienkämper, Jr., presides over the same Corktown showroom. There are still Nienkämper pieces on display, alongside Tom Dixon lights, Moooi carpets, and Fogo Island chairs.
