I’m Lia, the interior/handmade product designer behind the Burlington based online boutique, Mod Pieces, which specializes in statement lighting & decor. When I’m not working in my studio, you can find me writing about decor & lighting, here on the blog, or over on the Style at Home Blog

Mod Pieces has new goodies in store... iPhone Cases, Antler Pillows & More!

Can you believe labour day has come & gone already?! Where did summer go? Oh well, fret not, Mod Pieces has a whole whack of new goodies in store to get you excited for fall!

What's new for fall? Check out our Modern Taxidermy Collection, a new line of throw pillows & iPhone cases featuring graphic silhouettes of indigenous & exotic antlered creatures!

We've also applied the fun & graphic prints from our Signature Series of throw pillows to iPhone cases!

We like to make it easy for you to surround yourself with unique handmade furnishings, so we've designed our lines to be mixed + matched.

Choose the colourway that best represents your style & co-ordinate your selection across all of our collections!

In store, just click on the design that grabs you & view the additional images to see what that item looks like in each of our colours. Then, make sure to select your colour choice in the drop-down menu during checkout. Presto!

Psst... We're also hard at work on a new collection of pendant lighting, designed to co-ordinate with each of our standard colourways. Look for that in the coming weeks!

Also, our custom work wait list has just opened up a few spots, so if you've been thinking about contacting us for a custom lamp shade, now is the time!

Enjoy soaking up the last days of summer!




Visit us tonight at the Makers Market!

Stop by Centro Garden in downtown Burlington tonight (Friday) from 4-10 to shop from the best local makers.

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!
