The current issue of Covet Garden takes you on a tour Shaun and Todd's very cool Cabbagetown home. Many of the furnishings in the house come from the same designers featured in Shaun's Dundas West store, Made. While we were there shooting the space for the issue, we also noted some of our favourite pieces in the shop — like the digital print of an original photo/painting by Christina Zeidler pictured above.
Made, which is owned by Shaun Moore and Julie Nicholson, is dedicated to showcasing the work of Canadian designers and craftspeople. You can find things small (such as the ceramic "Pentakis Vessels" by Kristen Lim-Tung, pictured above), medium (such as Bev Hisey's "SARS" carpet, shown here on the wall) and large (like the walnut and hand-painted MDF credenza by Jason Wheeler).
The vessels look great on The Agostinis and Harrison-Off Design Institute's coffee table.
And of course, we couldn't not mention designer Katherine Morley's clever message vases (above), or the wondrous, hand painted mohair throws by Wild Haliburton Elephant Weavers (aka WHEW). We are really scratching the surface of a great design scene here in Canada. We stopped by the shop today to double check the spelling of some names and noticed that some great new pieces had into the shop. We really wish we could mention them all (another post perhaps?).
