Here in Vancouver as the rain begin and summer starts to fade away we turn our attention towards Autumn. Summer doesn't formally end until September 22nd but with many exciting things on the horizon that date feels irrelevant. Here in Gastown that means we have new arrivals every week.

Kristina Dam Studio Sitting Storage & Rug Solid Horizon Wool Rug
Kristina damn studio and Rug Solid are two brands that embrace their Scandinavian roots. This cube by Kristina Dam is called the Sitting storage because of its double duty. Take off the wooden lid and you can fit a surprising amount inside. With the lid on it becomes a side table or stool. The horizon collection by Rug Solid takes its name from the strong contrasting patterns used that are influenced by horizons around the world. What makes these rugs even more unique is the use of materials. They use a blend of wool and recycled fishing nets to make an environmentally conscious rug that is still beautiful.
