Sunpan renews Corus agreement
TORONTO – Contemporary furniture resource Sunpan has renewed its agreement with Corus Entertainment to be the exclusive on-set furniture provider for several the television programs it produces, including ET Canada. This will be the third consecutive season for the deal.
“Working with Corus Entertainment to furnish multiple television sets has been an exciting partnership,” Sunpan chief marketing officer Katherine Kalen said in a statement. “The style of our furniture aligns perfectly with entertainment and popular celebrity culture while providing durability and comfort.”
The 2019 season partnership was launched during the recently ended Toronto International Film Festival with Sunpan providing the furniture for the ET Canada Interview Lounge. Directors, actors, producers and Hollywood A-listers were seen interviewed by ET Canada hosts while seated on the Westin sofa, Kristoffer lounge chair, Kane end table and Evert coffee table.
This year, Corus Entertainment producers opted for a cohesive look across several programs. Set designs for the Canadian Country Music Awards broadcast in early September as well as the daily edition of ET Canada feature Sunpan pieces designed with vintage blue faux leather, antique brass and white marble.
