something personal

Writing our annual Trends report is a year-long affair that starts with picking up on the design clues that we see being repeated by tastemakers across the globe. However, last year, it looked very different. Instead of reporting on the latest news in furniture and fabrics, we wrote about a better way to work from home, and how to extend our outdoor zones and create nooks out of overlooked spaces. It’s a year on, and we’re seeing the effect of what almost 18 months at home looks like. While we still want our homes to function well and look nice, we’re also concerned with how they make us feel. This time around, it’s personal. Topping the list this year are trends that give us a sense of comfort, flirt with the…

I’m delighted to see Emma Reddington return to the pages of H&H. The issues she has worked on stand out in such a contemporary way and feel much more representational of Canada’s design scene. She also highlights the cultural context of many pieces that are featured in articles, which is critical for building more cultural awareness within home styling. It makes the magazine feel fresh yet grounded. —PATRICIA HUNTSMAN, Nanoose Bay, B.C. I’ve been a happy subscriber of House & Home since its inception. I’m so pleased to see that you’ve begun to incorporate articles that address the reusing and renewing of possessions! It’s time that we, as consumers, pay attention to our earth. I’ve been a proponent of this mindset for years and have renewed many pieces of furniture for family…

Just two years after launching its online collection of sustainably made stoneware dishes, table linens and glassware, Fable has opened a gallery-like brick-and-mortar store on the West Queen West strip. “We wanted people to be able to see the hand-finished details, and the subtle imperfections in the glazing, shapes and edges that make them so beautiful,” says Sung Lee, Fable’s creative director. A demonstration dining room at the back of the store will be changed up regularly with different art and furniture, which speaks to the brand’s versatile aesthetic — quiet, adaptable, ready to serve.

old faithful shop

Known for its classically styled household essentials, Old Faithful Shop first opened in Gastown in 2010. Since then, the inventory has expanded to include heirloom-quality furniture and lighting from brands such as Ferm Living and Skagerak, and it recently opened a second location in Kitsilano. “I want to be where people live and work, and make us a part of their routines,” says owner Walter Manning. Based on those he created to outfit the bright new shop, he’s now developing a line of shelving and tables in his on-site workshop — a new direction that will hew faithfully to the store’s carefully laid roots.

siafu home

WHO: Gladys Macharia, co-founder and designer WHERE: Nairobi, Kenya CONNECT: @siafuhome THE SCOOP: After studying fashion and gemology in Florence, Italy, Gladys returned to her native Kenya, working with labels such as Vivienne Westwood and Stella McCartney to build connections with makers across East Africa. In 2019, she started Siafu Home with Niccola Milnes, a Canadian based in Vermont, to create handmade goods for the home, including table linens, glassware and serving accessories. Preserving traditional craftsmanship and supporting local communities informs each and every piece. “The idea behind Siafu was to create an umbrella where I could host and represent these skills and start a conversation,” says Gladys. ALL IN A NAME: Siafu means “ant” in Swahili, and nods to the brand’s collaborative approach to design. HOT BUY: The…

holding pattern

For her new textile collab with Hunter Douglas, New York artist Marcie Bronkar looked to the old, reviving classic prints such as English foulards, batiks and paisleys with fresh colour combinations. Her understated Grand Fleur print is simplified to let the embroidered detail shine. “I feel a responsibility to interpret historical design in a modern way, so it can live in a modern home,” she says. Seven designs offer options for drapery, roman shades, roller shades, throw pillows and more.
