If you've got wall space to fill I strongly encourage you to consider a ticket to Open Studio's annual fundraiser 1/Hundred Prints happening May 15 at Toronto's Palais Royale. Open Studio is the city's biggest and best printmaking studio supporting some of Toronto's most talented artists. Here's how it works, 100 prints will be available to 100 patrons for $385 each. Tickets are drawn in random order: when your number comes up, you have one minute to choose your print from those remaining.

Toronto (East) Tool Library Launch

Monday, November 4, 2013

2 Comments

The Toronto East Tool Library and Makerspace throws its doors open for a grand opening party Thursday night (1803 Danforth Ave, 8 - 11 pm, free). The Tool Library lets members borrow a dizzying array of electrical and hand tools for up to five days; it's a cost-efficient way ($50 per year membership) to access tools you only use once in awhile. This sounds like exactly what I need for those occasional reupholstery, cutting and refinishing projects you know I love to tackle. Join me, I'll be there.

Kelly Wearstler Would Wet Herself

Saturday, September 7, 2013

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.

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.

No Name Comfort

After years of brand name beds, last week I purchased my first no-name mattress set and so far I'm a happy camper. I found Factory Mattress (1650 Bayly Street, Pickering, Ontario) through a Craigslist ad; I fell in love with their Continental pillow top, a perfect combination of soft and firm and for $700, including delivery, the price was definitely right.
