Can you spot the consignment find?
I recently designed a vignette for the charity auction Eva’s Home For life. When I set out to design it I really wanted to see how much of the design could be done with sustainability in mind. I truly wanted to know if it was possible to source products that were either Canadian made or Eco-friendly. It was HARD!
The bedroom we designed ended up being a blend of re-purposed consignment finds and new custom build furniture made locally with local materials.
Can you spot which items are the consignment finds?
Hopefully I just blew your mind a little bit! I love how you can create a curated and high end design by using vintage items!
In the end we managed to design the entire booth using products with a minimal or zero carbon footprint.
Here’s how we did it:
Rug: Elle & Eve Consignment Store
Nightstands: Camilla House Imports - Made with Canadian wood
Lamps: Flow Decor - Made in the USA
Bedding: White Terry Home - Local Social Enterprise
Art and Accessories: Elle & Eve Consignment Store
Bench: Camilla House Imports - Made with Canadian wood
Mattress: ENDY - Canadian Company - Locally Made
Custom Pillows: Cottage Cloth - Local Artisan
Here’s the deal. It may be hard to find the right items - sure it takes longer than a quick google search and online purchase. But it’s well worth it when you see the end result. You can do it too.
