re-formed, canadian company spotlight

By: Lindsay Stephenson

I'm hugely sentimental. My basement storage room is filled with boxes and boxes of saved birthday cards, airplane tickets from trips, Oscar's first baby clothes ... the list keeps growing. Although I take great delight in opening a box up and going through memory lane, it's sad to have certain things packed away. Sarah Gunn (@lovelaughshop) tweeted last week about getting a piece of work from @ReFormedArt and curiosity got the best of me and I went to Re-Formed's website. I fell head over heels for this gem of a Canadian company.

What Re-Formed has done, is put a modern spin on the shadow box. You give them something you love and they permanently frame it in a beautiful plexi box, allowing you to also customize the background colour, and even add on text to the front of the box. By putting something in one of these boxes, it transforms your memento from being just an object, to being a really cool conversation piece in your home as well as a beautiful piece of art. I'm now going to go dig through my boxes in the basement and find some things I know I'd like to have done! Pricing starts at $95 and increases with the size of box. Pssst - The current boxes permanently encase your item (which is fine for most things) but Amanda, the designer behind Re-Formed mentioned that they are going to be releasing a new box that can open shortly. Visit Re-Formed website here for pricing and more (gorgeous) photos. Photography by Margaret Mulligan Lindsay Stephenson is our guest blogger who has her eye on all things fabulous in Toronto.
