I am inspired by unused and unwanted furniture and found objects. And I am driven by a desire to transform them into pieces that are one of a kind. I take old things and I make them new.

Speaking of the world, did I mention that Poppyseed is 'green' too? That just sort of grew out of making the old new, which I do everyday from my home studio in Toronto, but it's become so much more than that too. For example: I source local, and my materials are recycled (though you wouldn't know it to see it, since every piece looks, feels and smells Poppyseed new!).

Whether you're looking for a special something for your home or cottage, I hope you'll cherish my creations as much as I do.
You can commission custom pieces too. I'll even finish things you've started, if you want me to...
Take a minute to browse through my store. Take a look. Feel free to say hello too. I'd love to connect with you.
