Poul Cadovius wall unit, reimagined.

February 25th, 2010

cado unit -6

Well, here is the second half of our living room reveal: we finally put up our teak wall unit!

cado unit -7

It’s nice to have a place to put our tv, record collection, and have some of our favourite collections out on display.

There may be an unintentional viking theme happening…

cado unit -4

…Hadeland glass whale and viking.

Also a mjölk theme. Holly from Twice Found visited us, and as a store opening gift she thoughtfully gave us this beautiful vintage Beauce pottery milk jug on the left, and the other two are by a local artist, which Juli purchased from Distill about 5 years ago.

The teak really adds warmth to the white space. Now for some art……..

  3. Lol, yeah, it was in hiding because our ceilings are too high for it. We had to rig up a false ceiling for it to work – and that mixed with the wonky floors made for a long process. But it’s nice to have some storage in the living room finally!

    As for Google reader, I have no idea. I tried fiddling around on wordpress, but it seems like a whole bunch of obvious options that I thought existed don’t. I guess something I clicked on put thumbnails onto google reader? I have no idea how to get them full size. I hope that with the blog redo we’ll get all this stuff working properly. Thanks for your patience!

  4. Looks great! We were going to paint our downstairs white but wanted to wait until we had everything else done first. This makes us want to do it now instead of waiting. Looks so fresh and so clean (hah) – really! It makes everything pop out.

    Great idea with the wood support for the wall unit. It looks great under the window!

  5. It warms my heart on this snowy day to see the things I collected for the store looking so comfortably at home on that gorgeous unit (great idea for the header).

  7. You place looks fantastic and your blog is great! I’ve been following it for a while and didn’t realize you had some Cado system pieces, awesome! I used some Cado for fixtures in my shop in Detroit:


    Keep up the good work and keep posting the eye candy!

  8. teak looks so good in your white space!! And kudos to you for keeping the shelf minimal on display! Jin and I can never decide what to keep on it, our shelf is so cluttered!

    And nice job on putting in the false ceiling! I couldn’t even tell until I read the comments!

  9. so clever with the little board fix to rig the spring-loaded uprights under the windowsill above; it integrates the unit visually to the window and the architecture of the room.

    humble advice: go easy on the art. let sunlight and shade be the art, not stuff stuck to walls. the room looks so big and peaceful with the walls clear and unobstructed, the furniture really pops, especially with the white floors… don’t junk it up visually, people!

  10. I think it would be great to have some art on that big blank canvas of a wall. Something with depth and colour? Like this, http://queengallery.ca/2010/02/the-eternal-inca/#more-930 or this http://queengallery.ca/2009/07/sanaz-shirshekar-2/ ? Maybe if you haven’t already found something suitable, you would like to come by our gallery and have a look? http://queengallery.ca/

    Hope to see you soon! :)
