Olio Update: Crate & Barrel now on Olioboard


Upon many requests from our Olioboard members, we now have the new Crate & Barrel line on Olioboard. The first time I stepped into a Crate and Barrel store was about 4 years ago on a trip down to San Francisco. I honestly wanted to buy almost everything in the store. Thankfully, a few months later, they opened a location in Toronto where I lived. Yay :)

A short while later, I moved to Vancouver where they have yet to open a store. :( Oh well, at least I can still experiment with the line on Olioboard.

For me it’s all about the streamlined silhouettes that most of their furniture has. Everything has a clean, fresh look, but still maintains a comfortable feel. The above are some of my favourite pieces. Particularly the Blake Lounge Chair. I love the soft grey wash over the solid teak and handwoven rattan. It also doesn’t hurt that the frame is crafted of plantation-grown teak supported by TFT, a nonprofit organization that promotes responsible forest management.

For all you Olioboard members — let us know if there is a brand you want to see on Olioboard and we’ll do our best to get it for you. We have managed to get eight new brands on Olioboard based on the requests of our members including West Elm, CB2, The Home Decorators Collection and more. There are also 6 more requested brands coming your way within the next week. Keep them coming and we’ll do everything we can to get them for you. Happy Olioboarding!
