UncommonObjects

Curlin and I moseyed over to Uncommon Objects for a hit of South Congress happiness last week and we were not disappointed. Inspiration can be had at any price point in this phenomenal store – some of my favorite discoveries are below.

GlassFloats

I’m drawn to glass in the garden, especially when it has watery hues like these glass floats for $16 each.

Pan

Pan was watching over a charming corner of the store. We conferred with staff and found that Pan is playing his flute; he is not able to issue a stream of water from that pipe in his piehole.

WhitePanels2

Love these white wood panels. For $125, that is a whole lot of ambiance.

MetalTable

Hip table hanging around with aluminum briefcases – imagine powdercoating the table a succulent apple green. Mmm.

MetalChairs

Sweet little chairs for children’s afternoon tea.

Basket

This photo is deceptive – this basket is actually about 18″ wide by maybe 40″ long. Line it with sphagnum moss and stuff full of plants – gorgeous!

PlumbBobs

Curlin suggested these nifty bits would make a great chandelier – they are plumb bobs from surveyor’s instruments.

DoorbellCover

This would make a lovely doorbell cover, would it not?

BertoiaChairs

Reasonably priced Bertoia chairs were hanging out in the back room with a groovy acrylic magazine rack and a gorgeous danish style wood dining table.

The man behind the counter at the front of the store (with the kind eyes and winning smile) is owner Steve Wiman – he watches over the 24 different vendors who have their wares in the store. Say hello from Sue when you are there!
