Have a spooky Halloween!
a few months back, i was excited to welcome EQ3 to san francisco. their brand new showroom is more like a lovely loft space i’d love to move into. well, now i’m happy to announce that the Canadian-based modern furniture company EQ3 is now available to shop online. their new, North American e-commerce site has launched and the expansion now brings EQ3’s signature custom-made upholstered designs and home furnishings to our American doorsteps.
EQ3 offers their own EQ3+, a designer line featuring iconic brands and mid-century modern classics from designers like eames and george nelson, as well as fun fabrics, accessories and homewares from amazing designers like marimekko, Vitra and Alessi. Their new website offers you the same experience you would have if you visited the store, including access to entire lines of custom upholstery, with over 150 fabric and leather choices as well as access to EQ3’s in-stock upholstery program, and you can search products by filtering via price, color, size, etc – making it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. you can also check out their blog, inhabit where they will be curating content that showcases EQ3’s love of design, art and culture — speaking directly to design aficionados everywhere.
trick or treat? i’m up for some treats, but maybe not the traditional sort of halloween treats — i’m more game for some beautiful black + white styled inspiration. i’ve never been a big fan of orange + black together (sorry, san francisco giants, but congrats on your world series win), but black? with white? you know i love it! happy halloween everyone!
there’s just something about an a-frame that is so comfy cozy. do you know what i mean? a-frames are usually tucked into an attic somewhere, and when they’re remodeled right, they can often offer up the best room, not to mention the best view, in a house. i’ve always wished i had one — ever since i was little i imagined an a-frame to be the perfect slumber party pad. now, i think of them as an ideal guest bedroom, or quiet home office. paint the floors, ceilings and beams white and an a-frame takes on a very scandinavian cottage vibe. here’s a few a-frame, loft-like spaces i could definitely live in.
