  • Eye Spy... Blomus FARO Tealight Torch

    FARO Tealight Torch with frosted glass by Blomus

    For only $28, set a twinkly mood in your backyard, at your front door, or in potted patio plants. This stainless steel tealight torch by Blomus is a great modern and sophisticated alternative to the well known tiki torch.

    While Tikis can be fun for a theme party or particularly beachy backyard, the Blomus Tealight Torch is a little more discreet and little more fire safe. Available in frosted or clear glass, FARO torches can also be un-assembled for storage over the winter (the stake is comprised of sections that unscrew from each other).

  • With Spring Comes Patio

    Now is the time to start thinking about patio furniture. Ok, in some climates, all the time is the time to think about patio furniture... but we can't all be that lucky. Victoria has been sporting some cold temperatures during spring so far, but this weekend the sun has come out and summer looks close by.

    For mid-century modern lovers, bring your Eames and Nelson classics outdoors this season! Love them inside, love them out ... thanks to Herman Miller, these pieces are now available in finishes to take on the sun, wind and rain.




    The move to outdoor is actually a return to roots for the Eames Aluminum Group series. It was originally developed for outdoor use - designed specifically for the famous J. Irwin Miller's mid-century home. The outdoor weave fabric on the chairs come in four different tones, all perfectly chosen to compliment the graphite and white frame choices. As always with Herman Miller, these pieces are environmentally friendly, composed of 64% recycled materials and is 95% recyclable itself.



    The Nelson Pedestal Table comes in various sizes - two heights and two diameters to choose from. Much like the interior version, this makes it easy to exactly the table configuration that you need.
