Sylvie Rochon's 1,000-square-foot apartment in an up-and-coming Montreal neighbourhod is like an art gallery of sorts. It's clear upon first glance that Sylvie has a passion for design and keen eye for spotting pieces that are intriguing and unique (like the oversized bulldog clip and the turquoise chandelier, both in the dining room). Evidence also lies in her vintage furniture shop, Spoutnik (French for "Sputnik"), which is chock full of iconic pieces, funky gems, and items from private sales.
Building a beautiful boudoir
An early 1960s chandelier with plastic drops hangs over an Eero Saarinen pedestal table and chairs in the dining room. The pocket doors, which close off the bedroom area, were discovered in a Quebec City recycling centre. "I bought them six months before the renovation started," says homeowner Sylvie Rochon. "I knew I wanted them in my home, but just didn't know where."
