Finding serendipity — while taking a detour
Serendipity is — by definition, I suppose — a funny thing. So it was that just after I filed a story on map motifs and decorative globes, I ran downtown to check out new summer product from PC Home (see post below). I was a few minutes early so I popped into Morba, a cute and crammed store just west of Bathurst. Upon entering, what did my little eye spy but a veritable cornucopia (?!) of globes. Vintage, reproductions, on stands, globes hanging from the ceiling. It was raining globes! While chatting to owner Junian about the popularity of globes and maps, he told me about a company called Authentic Models. They have gorgeous globes. Lovely globes. Globes that make you want to travel the world to see. Or just sit home and look at them. You can see more fun maps on textiles and wallpaper in an upcoming Hot Home Products column, which will feature pillows for Ferm Living, available at Modern Karibou and Atelier 688 as shown in the pics above.
