I love the simplicity of this new store.
Welcome to canvas, a new collection of ceramics, wooden objects, textiles, accessories and furniture for the home created by artisans and craftsmen from the US and abroad.
canvas is a journey around the globe that combines natural materials with interesting textures. Unstructured, soft shapes and subtle colours define a look that is understated yet elegant.
With a continued pursuit of products made under fair trade and green principles, we aim for a collection that represents simple, sustainable style.

Urban Archaeology is one of our favorite sources for light fixtures and tile, but that’s not all they do. In addition to hardware, plumbing and furnishings, they also offer a full selection of salvaged pieces. Check out the c.1900 medical cabinet above.
This medical cabinet has twelve rotating, locking drawers; an upper cabinet with locking glass doors, glass side panels; mirrored back, bottom and top and a bottom cabinet with locking metal doors and shelf. The finish is Powder Coated.
Beautiful. It can be yours for $19,500.
Concreteworks is a design studio specializing in the craft of concrete. They’ve developed a lightweight concrete-based composite that allows them to fabricate countertops, bath tubs, sinks, tile, furniture and pretty much anything else they can dream up.

Bjorn sent me the link to this great store. If you’re into modern design, you should take a peek.
Hive was founded in 2002 with the idea that Good Design can and should be presented in an inspired, knowledgeable and friendly manner.
From humble beginnings fueled primarily on inspiration, hive has grown to inhabit its own free-standing building in the Pearl District, Portland’s most upscale urban neighborhood. We are proud to be an authorized retailer for Alessi, Artemide, Artifort, Carl Hansen, Cassina, Flos, Kartell, Knoll & Vitra to name just a few. hive has been noted in national magazines such as Dwell, Index, In Style, Lucky and Western Interiors magazines.
We like to think of hivemodern.com, as the web-stop for the savvy design enthusiast…. bringing the rare and unusual plus time-tested icons of design directly to your front door. Our manifesto is really quite simple: to share the joys of Good Design while providing value and excellence in service to our patrons. Whether you simply enjoy browsing the product pages to see what’s new, or dive directly in and order a quantity of Eero Aarnio Ball Chairs, we hope to foster a fun web-based environment where people can delight in Good Design on their own terms.

Looking for a nice Sunday drive?
Wind your way up the Merritt to Stamford, Connecticut and check out United House Wrecking. Give yourself lots of time to browse and bring plenty of cash. They’re not cheap, but they have an incredible selection of antique furniture, woodwork (I’m always attracted to the elaborate designs of the vintage bars), hardware, lighting, fireplace mantels, doors, windows and pretty much anything else that might be salvaged from a demolished piece of architecture.
