Visit us tonight at the Makers Market!

Be sure to stop by our booth to say hi!


Mod Pieces Yard Sale!

Spring has sprung & that means it's time to do some spring cleaning around the studio. So, we're hosting a yard sale this weekend to clear out some excess inventory.

When I say "major discounts", I'm not kidding... We're talking 50%-75% off our regular retail prices! If you've had your eye on an item in our shop, now is the time to scoop it up. We may never extend discounts like this to public again!

So stop by, say hi, and enjoy some complementary coffee & timbits while you shop. See you there!


Find Mod Pieces on Domino.com!

Domino.com is hosting a Southwest Modern flash sale!

You'll find our Navajo lamp shade collection, in collaboration with Avril Loreti Modern Home, included in this fun roundup of graphic & colourful goodies for your home!

Head on over & pick one up at a steal of a deal!


We're taking this show on the road - Mod Pieces is headed to NY Now!

We couldn't be more thrilled to announce that we're taking a road trip to exhibit at NY Now! The show takes place at the Javits Center, this February 1st - 6th.

Stef Serdar of The Shoppery will be accompanying me on this adventure & working the booth with me at the show.

This is a trade only event, but members of the press are welcome. So, stop by our booth & say hello. I can't wait to finally meet all of the bloggers & editors that I've been following & communicating with for years (along with some new faces I'm sure).

We return from the show on February 10th, at which point we'll begin fulfilling wholesale, retail & custom orders. So, please bear with us during this two week period of back-to-back shows.

If you haven't checked out our spring line yet, pop on over to our store to see what we've been busy working on this winter!


We're Exhibiting at By Hand

By Hand is a wholesale show that allows buyers from local boutiques & national chains to stock their shelves with the best in Canadian handmade goods.

We'll be exhibiting, along side 150 other talented artisans, this week (January 27th - 29th) in Toronto.

Hopefully, throw pillows from our new collections will be coming to a store near you this spring!

Speaking of spring, please visit our website to check out our latest additions for the season ahead. You'll find a number of new patterns in the Mod Pieces Signature Collection, as well as two new lines created in collaboration with The Shoppery - the Cottage Country Collection & the Therianthropy Collection.

Please note that all online purchases made between Jan. 27th - Feb. 7th will be accompanied by longer lead times. There's a very exciting reason for this that we can't share just yet, but stay tuned!

Thanks for your patients & continued support!
