The Canadian Ikea: Good-Looking, Neutral Rugs from EQ3

For months—coming up on 12, to be exact—I’ve been searching for a good-looking area rug for our bedroom that’s neutral (so I won’t get tired of it) but not boring. It’s surprisingly hard to find. Until, that is, a neighbor from the north arrived: EQ3, what I’d venture to call the Canadian Ikea, which opened a three-level flagship in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood this fall. Among pretty well-priced midcentury furniture and lighting, their rugs are all neutral with a twist:s sure to fit in any room, without sacrificing on the intriguing factor. Take a look—many of them are currently on sale.…


An Antique Stone House Revived, from John and Juli Baker of Mjolk in Toronto

John and Juli Baker, the couple behind Mjolk in Toronto, have a refined, specific take on design, centered on a mix of Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics. The two of them curate what we consider to be one of the best design shops anywhere (proof: it’s where Julianne Moore found her flatware a few years back). When we launched Remodelista in the aughts, we communed with John and Juli online, and when I was in Toronto a few years ago, I stopped by to take a tour of their apartment above their shop (see A Scandinavian-Inspired Kitchen with Hints of Japan). So…


Little Pink House: A Creative Couple’s Classic-with-a-Twist Home in Denmark

Most people, it seems, move from city to country, in search of quiet, more space, more nature. But not long ago, Jesper and Vibeke Panduro did a reverse commute, so to speak, moving from the Danish countryside to a trim, salmon-colored house in the harbor city of Aalborg. They renovated the 1928 house with their trademark eye, leaving as much original detailing as possible (molded ceilings, marble windowsills), adding washes of pastel to the walls, and filling the rooms, sparingly, with standout Scandinavian designs. The results are some of the freshest-looking, unexpected interiors we’ve seen: no surprise; this is the…
