Last weekend we drove to Detroit to score these fabulous Milo Baughman dining chairs. The U.S. border guard was incredulous: "You don't have chairs in Toronto?" he asked. Well, no, not like these.

Kelly Wearstler Would Wet Herself

Kelly Wearstler's jeans would be creamed. The custom marble table with the very special copper-finish base would be right at home in the design diva's latest book Rhapsody (2012). In my opinion, the table, currently in the window of Of Things Past Rosedale, is a showstopper, a heartbreaker, the kind of table you want to run away with, and never redecorate again. With its striking, composite marble top and its thin, beautiful bevel, the 50" x 46" top is a looker, that's for sure. The price? OTP wants $1,250.

’70s Style: Falling in Love Again

What the Vintage is a relatively new website and warehouse with a stockpile of 1960s and '70s furnishings, and I do mean stockpile. Owner John Baltazar's space is overflowing with mid-century furnishings: the 1960s teak and walnut stuff feels a little ho-hum at this point, but it was John's good 1970s pieces that really got my pulse racing.

I Needed a Jieldé

To say I "needed" a Jeilde is ridiculous, even I know that. But when I saw the brass coloured Jeilde at the Holace Cluny close out sale (final reductions on now until August 28), I knew it would provide the jolt of contemporary my time warp MCM living room needs. But that was two weeks ago and it was only marked down 30 per cent, I chose to bide my time. Sure enough, on Saturday I popped in and the second last one in this size was being purchased, now marked down 50 per cent. I jumped at my chance to buy high for low and walked the lamp home. Cluny is reopening mid-September in Designer's Walk.
