I love this classic swivel stool made of stainless steel and with the very necessary foot rest ring. It’s perfect for any setting, contemporary, industrial, cottage, what-have-you, this sure to fit right in.

I saw this simple lamp while perusing the internet. It’s cute, somewhat geometrical, and comes in so many fun colours. A fun accessory for any room!

So I just finished the Steig Larsson trilogy (which was great), but when I finish reading anything, I have a slight moment of oh-my-gosh-what-am-I-going-to-read-next. Yes. I’m a nerd in that sense. In all fairness, it’s what I do on my subway ride to and from work so that I don’t stare at other people’s cute outfits. Bad habit.

My friend told me about this website called Designer & Books. What is this you say? Well, it featuers 52 designers, from Billie Tsien to Daniel Libeskind, who post the books that they are currently reading or have read. Or, you can pick from 710 and 10 books, click on a book and see which designer has read it. It’s a great. And I think this is how I’ll pick my next read.

Posting my weekly pick a day early as I am off to Mt. Tremblant in Quebec for some good old snowboarding. The one activity that makes winter, ok. Right? Right.

I am loving this two person desk. It is perfect for narrow den areas that are so common in condos these days. In another situation, I had a client that wanted an office/guest room combo with a pullout couch for her guests. This was perfect for her and her roommate. Throw in a drawer unit in the centre for a more defined and separated working area and voila.

I’m sure you’ve heard about the show Capacity which is still going on this weekend (until the 6th), here in Toronto. One of the artists whose work is being displayed is Erin McCutcheon, a curator for the show as well. Recently, Emma from The Marion House Book featured these incredible porcelain vessels, which were in fact done by Erin, also her sister-in-law. I fell in love. They’re raw yet delicate and perfect in groups like in the image below. Erin doesn’t have an online shop, so I emailed her to get information on these vessels. Very sweet she is, these vessels aren’t at Capacity as she has new work on display, but she said that they are available directly through her. Here is the info.

I’m finding this coffee table so lovely! Made out of bent steel, it has a cutout throughout the centre of the table to give it a delicate and airy feel. Would work so well in all those bright white spaces I’ve been seeing lately!

I love this super geometric light. It’s modern, not overly big, but perfect for a foyer, over your dining room table, in a large walk-in closet, or even a super sleek washroom. Work it!
