Who says you can't use a canoe frame as art?

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

I just had to post this picture of my friend M & G's lovely Toronto home. They have been living with a long blank wall for a while so when G spotted this beauty at Restoration Hardware he knew he had to have it. Nice work G...nice work.  I think you hit a design home run with this vintage architect's canoe model or  "marquette"as I just found out. I love the scale and weight of the piece and it screams Oh Canada...which always makes me happy.
Fabulous right? I only wish I had such high ceilings like this. Architect Canoe available at Restoration Hardware.
Another angle of course! Images via me.

I love it and your photography skills are great! (NB I would just have them paint out the return air vent the same as their wall colour as it jumps out at you and takes away from the lines of the canoe. Hope you don't mind me saying - can't help myself! :) )

Hahahaha! This reminds me of the African exhibit at the Met museum- Canoes hung from the wall, canoes hung from the ceiling...
