In 1981, Peggy Byron opened Boutique Au Lit in Montreal, one of the first bed linen shops in Canada to offer pure cotton sheets instead of treated polyester. The store was an instant success, with people lining up outside the 700-square-foot store. Soon Byron expanded the business to include a factory where she manufactured her own collection of linens.
Fifteen years later, Byron moved the retail end of the business to Toronto, where she would eventually take over a store almost ten times the size of her first!
Peggy passed away on July 26, 2014. Today, her daughter, Joanna Goodman - who has developed her own passion for design and fine linens - is running the family business with her husband, Miguel. When they're not in Toronto, they're travelling throughout Europe and the U.S sourcing the world's finest linens, planning and designing new collections, tweeting, blogging, creating and changing the way people sleep.

The Legacy Video
We made this video as a tribute to my mother's legacy. We think it captures the fearlessness and spirit of a born entrepreneur, someone who was on a mission to change the way people sleep and improve the quality of their lives. Enjoy.
