Canadiana: Lost Nation


This weekend, while I was in Toronto I had the wonderful pleasure of having brunch with my best-friend, Diana. She was telling me about a friend of her's who was taking part in the OneofaKind Christmas Show, Toronto's biggest handmade holiday market. Katie's work sounded so beautiful that I had to check it out.


Katie Barnstaple is a woodworker, creating custom furniture and accent pieces for the. Her humane antlers and wooden antler chandelier are some of my favourites. I love the simplicity and warmth in her work, something that comes from the found wood she uses to create her pieces. Katie works out of an old wooden garage that she converted into her Lost Nation studio space in Thornbury, Ontario.

You can see more of Katie's work in her Etsy shop, and read up on all of Lost Nation's latest news on her blog.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
