shop visit: phil'z 20th century furniture

Montréal continued....Just a few shops down from The Sparrow, where we ate brunch, is Phil'z 20th Century Furniture. The window display had me salivating, with driftwood globe lamps, danish chairs, 6-ft tall baskets, and gigantic blown glass pendants.

The shop is chock full of industrial goodies, including side tables, dining tables, Tolix chairs and stools, lamps and shelving units in addition to mid-century furniture and lighting.









This console is my dream console. Old and battered industrial-ish bottom (it was metal or maybe zinc?) with a marble top. Drool. I also wanted to take home the stool in the above photo. The boy never likes my taste in interiors, unfortunately, so I dream of the day I can have my own art/design studio so I can decorate it exactly as I like!

If my budget wasn't severely restricted right now, I would have been carting home a few things. Namely that stool, which I am still thinking about.

wow. great stuff, especially the hanging lamps. fortunately, "mr. odyssey" and i have similar tastes, or at least he's able to appreciate and tolerate my eclectic choices in decor. he's probably just pretending to like it, hah!

That's a shame because that console looks like it would go well with your decor. One of the lamps reminds me of packing peanuts. But there's this quilted leather chair and stool that's catching my eye.

LOVE midcentury Danish/Scandanavian furniture (those chairs by the window are calling my name), this store looks amazing! :)
