Your Loft or Mine?

Oil painting by Charlene Lynch at Glam Vintage & Moderne

I gotta say I am proud of my loft.  It’s what my friends call “a good hang”.  I think it looks put together but not in a contrived sort of way. Repetition of colour provides cohesiveness to the room and varying textures make it interesting.

In this vignette at Glam, Richard created a loft-like feeling. The tones of the 60’s styled Canadian made sofa marry well with the original oil painting and the vintage suitcase. The contrast of the clean tailored tufted sofa and simple suitcase showcase the warm brick wall backdrop and the russets and taupes in the oil painting.  The chartreuse toss cushions add the surprise hit of colour.

I know you expected to see my loft here but that would mean I would have to tidy vacuum and dust on a day when company’s not coming and that’s “just not done”.

Sophisticated Sofas for the Brave

Off-white sofas and sectionals are on trend and work anywhere.

Cowardly parents and dogparents will order Glam’s Canadian made sofas in another shade even though the fabric is polyester and cleans easily with a damp sponge and a little “Dawn”.

These off-white sofas will always look sleek and elegant with their “perpetually tidy” bench seating – a calm serene anchor against nearby busy furniture and accessory patterning.

Relatively inexpensive area rugs, pillows and draperies in eye-popping colours can be purchased with reckless abandon when all you have to do is match them to white.

Even my partner could do that but then I’d have to get a real job.

Only the Beginning

Winter is almost over and the holiday season is definitely over including year-end inventory clearances.  Glam is bringing in loads of exciting new and (new to Glam) vintage furniture and decor.  If you have not been in lately maybe this pic will entice you.

Introducing Glam Vintage & Moderne’s new season

In this snap you’ll see a fresh tufted bench seat sofa with a new curvey cabriolet coffee table and a sweet aluminum skinned contemporary cabinet with an eye-popping Margaret Glew abstract behind it.  Richard has been at auctions, estate sales, galleries and gift shows.  And you thought he was off somewhere getting a tan…

This is “only the beginning, only just the start”.  Time to come out of hibernation and start foraging.
