Lia's core business value is to makeover pre-loved pieces with eco-friendly practices, and offer customers the opportunity to express their personal style through specific customization, whether it is the color for the base and patterns on the shade. I am completely on board with Lia's green approach to design and admire her dedication and devotion to creating sustainable and sentimental pieces, that are truly one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable, to all her customers.
So you can imagine how honoured I was when Lia asked me if I would contribute to the first edition of "Mod Pieces Lookbook", where I used "Blake" as my jumping off point to decorate an entire room. Before I show you what I come up with, here is Blake living large at the OOAK Show.

What a breathtaking warehouse! The raw, un-refined quality of the space is definitely the perfect backdrop to showcase and juxtapose the delicate nature of these vintage, handcrafted lamps. Here is the latest collection at Mod Pieces.
Before I show you what our talented editor and all the fabulous contributors have come up with, here is a little bio for all of us.
First up is Lia, the designer behind Mod Nest, and her favourite lamp: Morley.
I love the earthy quality of Morley and the moose fabric is just perfect for the Canadiana theme. Lia selected simple, sophisticated pieces with an industrial flair to pair with Morley. I heart those planters and reclaim wood coffee table on casters.
Lola has a beautiful wood base that's full of character. This suzani fabric shares a similar color tone and its graphic pattern mingos well with the shapely base. I love how Colleen continues the emphasis on warmth factor via natural walnut and the caramel leather chair and ottoman. Who wouldn't want this in cottage country?
The Aster Twins are, without a doubt, a pair of loud statements. To embrace the larger than life personality of these lamps, Hilary curated a collection of luxe, textile, and unique furnishings in hues of red and grey. I think the red oak end tables are a match in heaven for these twins to sit on, especially when placed on either side of this glamorous rockafeller sofa with mohair upholstery, down filled seat cushions, and tufted details.
Of course you all know I love the simple sophistication from the black & white + grey palette. So it should be of no surprise to you that I love the Sawyer.
Meg did a great job in her room and I particularly love the gold accents, the gutsy animal print as toss pillow, and the pair of horn bookends in her curation.
In the mean time, check out Mod Pieces and pick up a lamp or two of Lia's creative work for your space. I already have my eyes on two pieces from the orphanage section. Can you guess which two I am after?
