madeline weinrib loft

She's the guru of boho and this is her loft. Madeline Weinrib makes the most divine textiles, cushions, carpets and so much more. In Toronto you can find her stuff at a tiny hidden showroom called Y&Co. I can't really say enough about that place. It is totally devoid of the attitude that's so common around Designers Walk showrooms. And the fabrics and carpets.....OH MY! The best the best the best: John Robshaw, Peter Dunham, Laura Lienhard, Raoul Textiles and much more. 

But back to Ms W's place. Love love and loverson (except for the Buddhas -- not a fan of those: never, ever. Sorry, no offense to actual Buddhists intended.). Here's my love list: 1. carpets. 2. SPACE!. 3. Books. 4. club chairs. 5. cushions. 6. art. But what brings me here today is the pair of fully upholstered benches. Those things kill! I've had my eyes peeled for such items lately and am really digging them. Here are some faves:
