The Friday Find: The Perfect Mid Mod Teak Cabinet from GUFF

If you are a fan of mid-century modern and/or Scandinavian design and you are in or around the Toronto area, chances are you've heard of GUFF Furniture.  I personally have a house full of gorgeous finds from this Leslieville vintage shopper's staple, including the dining room table I'm working on right now! 

I pop onto the GUFF website at least a few times a week to see what's up and then I spend the next several hours fighting myself to keep from buying everything. My house is already in over-teak and though I'm quick to justify it by citing my Danish bloodline, there really does come a time when enough is enough. 

This cabinet though? COME ON. How strong to I have to be?! Those perfect proportions for a smallish space and cheerful smiley face drawer pulls? Add the fact that it's a two-piece and top and bottom can be used separately as required/desired and I'm actually in the car right now forget you read this it's mine... 

...okay fine I'm not in the car. I haven't a square inch left to devote to this cuteness. But if you do, get cracking! And if it's already sold, as it might well be when you read this (sorry), we would be beyond delighted to hunt down something equally perfect for you and your space. Call us! 



The Friday Find: Lounge Chairs by Kipp Stewart

What's up TGIFers? Can I kick this off by saying that I have literally ZERO business even contemplating the mere notion of looking at 1st Dibs on a Friday afternoon when I'm feeling a little shoppish. Like I should actually have my internet license revoked immediately. 

But, BUT! I wanted to kick off a new feature here at EMME blog called, as you can see, The Friday Find. Mostly because it's a super fun thing to do on a Friday and this is our site and we can do things like this and call it "working" if we want to. 

I had to start the first one off on the right foot—you know next week I'm going directly to H&M Home—and when I stumbled across these caned lounge chairs by Kipp Stewart I got the familiar ringing in my ears and spots in my eyes that tell me it's love at first sight. Sadly this love is going to go unrequited unless anyone out there (ANYONE??) has a cool $5,500 (US) kicking around and would like us to design your living room around these twin babies.

If this sounds like you, CALL US IMMEDIATELY. If it doesn't sound like you, we'd still love to hear from you and help you find some chairs that make you feel like blacking out too.
