Chic Bisque Diffuser

Mothers Day Gift Selection featured in The Globe and Mail

It seems the Globe and Mail newspaper’s style writer knows a good Mothers Day gift when she sees it.  The “chic bisque diffuser” is among her “47 gift ideas for mom”. The Globe naturally mentioned a Toronto store that sells the diffuser (at a higher price than Glam) but we won’t hold a grudge even though Glam’s scent selection is much more extensive.

Your Mother will appreciate this subtle, classy way of making the house smell fresh even though Fido and Dad live there.

“Steal ” this Stanwyck Sofa

Do you want a fabulous faux leather on trend couch with tack detailing?    If you said “yes but I can’t afford it”…look no further this one is a steal.  Drop by the store to see what I’m talking about and fill out a ballot to win the Downey Chair (the draw is on Saturday).

Even if you are not in the market for furniture it’s a great time to come in because we have lot’s of new end tables and giftware.  The ceramic flower diffusers are now available in 6 scents… perfect gift for that hostess with a dog she doesn’t smell.

Choose Organic for your Tabletop

The other day I heard yet another decorating “rule”.  This one says every tablescape should have at least one thing that’s organic on it (and they don’t mean produce).  I take it the rule means “characteristic of, pertaining to, or derived from living organisms”.  Based on this definition I think you are pretty safe with anything that represents natural plants or organisms and items made from a natural substance (wood, marble etc) .

As I look around Glam Vintage & Moderne I see that Richard has actually done this probably subconsciously because I know he would scoff at this new rule gleaned from a home decorating show.  Including something organic is almost unavoidable.

Popular objets d’art are pheasants, coral, artichokes, leaves, flowers, and anything made of natural materials like wood, iron and marble. I’d say it’s pretty hard not to conform.
