one of a kind christmas show & sale - part two

By: Lia Fagan
I’m sharing my top 20 favourite artisans from the Toronto One Of A Kind Christmas Show & Sale in a four-part series. Catch part one of this series right here! Are you ready for part two?   1. Lovell Designs Who can resist bold colours and pretty patterns? Lovell applies each of their original prints to uniquely crafted fabric home wares. From hampers to tea towels and everything in between, there’s something for every room! I especially love the whale pattern. It’s a fun print for kids. Stop by booth F-08 to check them out for yourself!   2. Beluxe As I blogged about a few weeks back, I was excited to visit the eye-catching booth of a good family friend and OOAK veteran, Bev Hogue, of Beluxe. She paints imaginary women that are curious and confident. She never deviates from blue, and really, why should she? Bev creates the kind of paintings that every time you look at them; you notice a detail that you didn’t before. Stop by booth S-51 to admire her “blue ladies” in person!   3. Fluf Are you in need of some colour-popping pillows to liven up your living space? Look no further. Fluf creates the most unique bags and pillows in fun colours and original designs. “Fluf it up with patterns and prints”. Visit booth R-28 to pick up a quirky lunch bag and some eco-chic throw cushions!   4. Not Made In China Don’t you love them already, just because of their name? I do! Hugo Didier’s line of ceramics is beautiful in its honesty and simplicity. I’m especially drawn to the splatter dishes and poutine bowls! Pick up a “not made in china” mug of your own at booth F-35.   5. Becca Wallace In addition to her classic fine art photographs, Becca Wallace also shoots playful robot and toy car images. I’m in love with the vintage cars shot against brightly hued backgrounds. Once mounted, she coats them with high gloss resin to make a bold statement. These retro meets modern pieces are perfect for young at heart adults or energetic kids! Visit her at booth E-05 to learn more about her process.   Don’t forget, the show ends on December 4th! Lia Fagan is an interior designer & the creative force behind Mod Pieces, an online boutique, specializing in restyled vintage lighting. When she’s not in her studio, she’s offering up tips for how to “design outside the lines” on her blog, Mod Nest.
