DESIGN POP-UP MEETS GALLERY Well, the actual address is the The Waterfall Building at 1540 West 2nd Avenue. But ADDRESS is also the name of a cool 12-day home and design show featuring 16 of the city's top furniture designers.
Described as part-gallery, part-pop-up-shop, and part-showroom, it's curated and produced by local woodworking talent, Kate Duncan, whose wares will also be on view.
Think of it as a one-stop shop to find daring lighting, hip wood furniture, and the greenery of living wall art.
The show runs from Wednesday (May 20) to may 31, open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and open until 9 p.m. on Fridays.
ADDRESS also hosts an interactive speakers panel on May 24th at 2 p.m. and May 26th at 6 p.m., featuring art curator Pennylane Shen, interior designer Amber Kingsnorth, architect Michelle Fenton, and contractor Matt Durocher.
Others whose works will be on display include Zoë Luyendijk, Propellor, Greenstems, Nicholas Purcell Furniture, Fabulous Furnishings, Sticks and Stones Furniture, Artemisia Metal Fabrication, Heyday Design, Lissu Linen, Hendrik Lou, Woodlot, Army of Rokosz, Troy Moth, Christine Breakell-Lee, and Stefanie Dueck.
TURNING BLUE Black, white, and neutrals abound for patio furniture, but we are loving Moe's Home Collection's palette of muted blues.
Check out the Galati line, available in individual units that can act as standalone pieces or be assembled into expansive sectionals: a dark base offsets the smoky blue hue to dramatic effect.
There's a club chair ($555), a slipper chair ($425), a corner chair ($495), and an ottoman ($325) that can be moved and mixed according to who you have over and how you want them seated.
Set it all off with a striking cantilever patio umbrella ($1889) in the same hue, and it's outdoor-party time.
