artKRAFT's new warehouse

A while back I featured some photos on my page of artKRAFT, a shop in Budapest that specializes in industrial furnishings and lighting. They recently acquired a new massive space in a warehouse that is nearly 500 m2 with 9m ceilings. I swear I would have a mild heart attack walking into this shop. What a dream! And OMG - stairs made from pallets. :)

Yes please!

After getting a sneak peek into Katie Graham's house I jumped on over to The Family Love Tree and look what I found. Yum! If you have a cane/retro/boho/peacock anything/bright colour addiction then you'll love it.

Martin & Brockett

One of our favourite designers Jason Martin (you may remember him from our DIY+ series) has taken a giant leap and opened up a showroom in Los Angeles called Martin & Brockett. It is filled with spectacular furnishings, lighting, accessories and artwork and I absolutely adore every single piece! Part traditional, part modern, it is a wonderful blend of both worlds that is bound to please all who enter...and have them leaving with tons of loot! I know I would be! Congrats Jason!!

I love the jewellery but can I live in the store?

Yes that's right. The jewellery is beautiful but so is the store. I'd move in if I could. Oh. Thought. Does that mean that I could drape myself in all the pieces after hours? Win win situation. Lulu Frost Studio and Store by Katie Martinez Design.

From the Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market 

Last weekend was the Spring 2015 Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market and I was there helping my husband with his booth and snapping photos before the show opened. We had a blast, met alot of great visitors and vendors, and my husband sold some of his radios so it was a successful weekend. I thought I would share some photos of what I came home with and some other goodies I spotted at the show. 

Me! My t-shirt by Anna of Door Sixteen (from her Society6 shop K IS FOR BLACK.) was a hit. :-)

I got a great deal from a former advertiser, Ed Haldorsen, on this gorgeous African teak coffee table. Made in Canada By Imperial. It needs some sanding and oiling so it is yet another project to tackle this spring/summer. 

The glasses and teak tray were from a vendor whose name I can't recall (they sell at the Almonte flea market), and the West German vase and glass etched decanters were a steal from the kind vendor across the aisle from us, Peter Frampton. 

I also found this vintage Fly-Tox ad that is really cool and now needs framing (I have a ridiculous amount of art piling up since moving to this house that needs framing and hanging). From Montréal shop Décadisme.

Each time this show comes to town, I always have to check out the Samantha Howard Vintage booth. She has the most incredible collection of modernist and brutalist Scandi/Finnish/Canadian jewelry (along with pottery/ceramics) and I can never resist picking up something. This time it was a Finnish ring and a gorgeous bronze hinged necklace by Hannu Ikonen. 

This is my husband's booth for his company Daff Design. He guts vintage, non-working radios and builds custom speaker boxes with an amp and Bluetooth to fit inside. They sound amazing (IMHO). He is currently working on this full time and it has been a bit slow-going but there was so much enthusiasm and positive feedback at the show and he sold several of them (and ended up with a TV spot and an article in the Ottawa Citizen). I'm really proud of him. :)
