N.D.C. in B.Y.O.B.

It's official.

We're now at BYOB - Toronto's 'first and only one-stop shop for everything bar and cocktail related'. Christmas is the season of drinking (and giving). Come stock up on bar supplies, beer making kits, bitters, and most importantly - I Kinda Like It Here Toronto Coasters.

We're excited for our product to be the newest family member amongst such eccentric collection of products.

The Mecca of alcohol accessories

sex sells... more coasters?

As a side note, the people who work at BYOB may be some of the friendliest people we've ever met. I would be happy too if i get to work around booze related designer products all day long.

Wooden Neapolitan 2

These hooks were created in the shop with leftover pieces from the Delta Dining table last summer. The tri-colour/tri-layer solid ash hooks are mounted to the wall at two points, using simple metal hardware and a countersunk hole, an idea that our friends at Ideacious recommended. It's the same simple mounting system that they are currently using on their Foreword book shelf by Karen King (which you can stock up on now through their prototype sale!). I was debating at one point to use a router and keyhole bit for mounting, but the metal hardware adds better strength and I think gives the back a nice graphic detail as well.

The colour combo adds a splash of fun to an otherwise mundane household item and I think I'll like try to incorporate the Neapolitan look into a few other designs next.

Wooden Neapolitan

Here's a sneak peak on something I've been working on in the shop lately. Can you guess what it is?

Also, I just found out that there's Neapolitan and then there's Napoleon. Luckily this print will help you and I remember which is which:
