I keep reading about a new-to-Seattle boutique, called Object, in magazines like Elle Decor and the like and have been meaning to drop by for a petite look-see. Jihan's pop-up created the perfect opportunity for a proper visit and I decided to forgo the kids' naps and seize the moment to drop by (and then pray I wasn't making a huge mistake!).
Oh my, how nice it was to step out of my daily routine and to allow myself to feel inspired by the vision of others. It is always a rewarding experience to witness the hard work and creativity of others in the works and Object is no exception. It is truly a beautiful shop to step into--a place where every turn draws your eyes to a different curiosity or beautiful object. I cannot recall ever seeing a shop anywhere that offers hand-crafted furniture (designed by Whitcomb and Co, which will also have a presence in the new Geronimo Balloons Studio), vintage clothing, art, accessories, exotic plants and vegetables--all in one space. This truly eclectic boutique definitely deserves a visit. I promise you'll feel inspired too!
