A visit to The Modern Shop

My favourite Ottawa shop for modern home decor goodness is The Modern Shop. I have visited this shop on more occasions than I could ever count and have spent more money here than I care to calculate. :) The other day owner Michael Shaikin suggested the husband and I stop by for a visit as he had just finished a makeover of the shop - he didn't need to twist my arm! Some walls painted black, floors painted in Farrow & Ball's Calamine (like my dining room - WOOT!), and super fabulous and funky wallpaper (Studio Job Alt Deutsch Wallpaper by NLXL)...it's fresh and fun and looks fantastic! Plus he used my wallpaper/painter guy who is amazing so Mike owes me a serious discount on that Moooi rug I ordered I think for hooking him up. ;)

It was tough to photograph the pink floors properly in this light but the photo above is a decent attempt. Looks gorgeous with the Era Lounge Chair by Normann Copenhagen

Tom Dixon accessories. SO HOT. 

Jonathan Adler accessories. SO FUN. 

A little bit of this, and a little bit of that.

Stuff and things. 

I love this shot. It's lighting HEAVEN! Hellooooo Tom Dixon etch pendant!

About A Chair by Hay Denmark - a sweet alternative to Eames chairs


Wall stuffs

HELLO! (This rose coloured Framed Mirror by Muuto is SOOOO pretty!)

I love everything Ferm Living

Wall of chairs and stools. Stools and chairs.  

I have been lusting after this Flos Taccia lamp...

Ok. I reeeeeeally want this Offcut Counter Stool by Tom Dixon. Imagine it in the corner of my living room against my Farrow & Ball Downpipe walls. The neon orange is UNREAL in person. 

A light I have been dreaming about since the dawn of time. Ingo Maurer Lucellino lamp.

A Normann Copenhagen classic that I bought Jo years ago and shipped to her in a care package yet I haven't bought myself one. Krenit bowls

I have a set of these bottle grinders by Menu designed by Norm Architects and they are by far the best set of salt & pepper grinders I have ever owned. GET YOURSELF A SET!

More Ferm Living. I bought one of these brass hexagon pots recently to use in my kitchen to hold large utensils.

It looks gorgeous! I've never been to the store, only the website. Someday... I did order a bed from the Modern Shop a few years ago (the Modernica Case Alpine bed, in fact) and Michael was a joy to work with. I recommend the MS frequently for selection and outstanding service. PS I love that bed.
