The Modern Shop

Posted on Sun, 1 May 2011 by KiM

This is just a quick post to welcome The Modern Shop to our sidebar. I have featured this shop before, back in October when I went to their grand opening (and when it was called The Modern Light). I am always eager to help promote local shops, especially ones as COOL as this because I often complain about the sh*tty selection of shops (for furniture and clothing) here in Ottawa. The Modern Shop is FOR SURE among my top 5. I have to admit I’ve been avoiding stopping by there lately because they carry such awesome furniture and lighting and I really need to get through my house additions first before I buy more stuff. They carry lines such as Flos, Hay, Modernica, MASHstudios, Moooi, Thonet, Jonathan Adler and MANY more. They’ll ship anywhere, and offer free shipping on most orders within North America.
Now I’m thinking maybe I could stop by The Modern Shop today, just for a few minutes….

(I sooooo want a bunch of these….)

those colorful chairs are gorgeous!! xx meenal

oh, careful with Solair chairs (the colorful ones) – there seems to be a flaw in the way the frame is welded, as it creates a pressure point on a plastic shell (little pieces of plastic popped in exactly the same spot on both of my chairs in less than a year)
other than that, it's a nice example of Canadian design (and workmanship if you happen to find a vintage one ;))
