Outdoor furniture at digs

This last weekend I stopped by for some window shopping at one of my favorite stores, Digs, a small home & garden shop in NE Portland on Alberta. Some day (I always say next year), when my time in my garden is spent lounging and sipping cocktails, rather than hauling wheelbarrow loads of something in, and other loads out, this is where I will come for my stylish outdoor room. For now, I have to stick to their pieces destined for interiors. There’s always something new to covet, and I’m constantly going back for something I can’t get off my mind, only to find that someone more decisive than me has already snapped it up. These pagodas have been calling to me since I saw them.

Loved the planter and the lights when I took the picture, but the red bamboo mirror has been tempting me ever since.

I’ve wanted this lamp forever. I think there used to be a pair. I’ll probably wait until the last one is gone and then decide I can’t live without it.
