This week has been an all out sprint to complete lingering projects, translation… I’ve spent a ton of time online shopping and pounding the pavement. Here are five really cool design finds that I scooped up this week.
Jonathon Adler for Kravet
Manhattan bar stool – Sunpan
Moma Chair – Urban Barn
New Wave Collection – Momeni Inc.
Howard Elliott Collection
Brilliant blasts of colour with design details that grab your attention was on the agenda this week, mission accomplished What’s up next you ask? Well, I’m on the hunt for a “showstopping” raspberry fabric and a killer dining table.
Let me start off by saying I love Vancouver, seriously I feel at home there from the moment my feet hit the tarmac. We had a busy week of family obligations but every day we took time to get on our bikes and explore the city. One of the interesting things about Canada is how varied our design is. I am overwhelmed with love for Vancouver architecture. It feels like every house has it’s own unique detail; mixed materials like cedar shakes, copper detailing and a variety of board and batten colours. I almost fell off my bike a number of times just trying to take it all in!
One of the great things about exploring another city for a designer girl like me is having the opportunity to wander the local design shops. My heart started to beat faster and I felt a little sweaty with anticipation walking into Chinz & Co’s massive downtown showroom.

There is a life beyond Home Sense and my wish is that people think outside the box be open to creative accents and begin to create homes with layers of personality. Vancouver is so vibrant and full of possibilities, our safe neighbourhoods of Ottawa need to take a page out of their book and add some spunk and sparkle!
