Wind Grove Interiors
Wind Grove Interiors has found a home in what used to be Black Pug DMK . Now a shared space, the Parkdale storefront showcases a variety of new and vintage pieces, as well as up-cycled and custom-made items including custom Black Pug DMK merchandise created onsite in their workshop.
It doesn't take long to look through the two storey-space and although they have a lot of organizing to do to properly display their merchandise, some items are definite standouts.
Saidtheking's hand-printed pillow cases ($45) hang in the display window, a vintage Japanese Pachinko Machine is sitting near the check-out ($650), a Lucy Au customizable sectional ($3400) takes up most of the ground floor area, and Shawn Skeir's DNA LANDSCAPE ($4200) brings some life to the walls.
The unfinished basement gives pieces with potential an abandoned-puppy feel. Amalfi outdoor furniture (starting at $400) is sitting in the shadows, lonely paintings by Eric Jackson paintings ($200) hang from the pillars, and an antique writing desk ($395) begs to come home with me as I approach the stairs to return to the street level.
Local passersby should be open to checking out Wind Grove Interiors for their eclectic one of a kind pieces, as well as quality furniture and home decor.
The owner promotes his large online presence for customers interested in shopping his backlog of inventory, though the website is somewhat disorganized as well.
