Many guys want their pads to look like fun, colorful places to have a great time, but it takes a lot of balls to make your joint look like a Chuck E. Cheese's. For stylish home goods from a place with almost as funny a name as Jasper T. Jowls, check out Woonwinkel.
Meaning "home shop" in Dutch, Woonwinkel's storming Downtown's burgeoning West End with white minimalist digs that look like a Steve Jobs dream, which're hosting a heavily curated selection of "new modern" housewares, from big dining tables to tiny cups, all of which "contrast something beautiful with a sense of humor or tiny flaw"...man, it's nice to see Cindy Crawford working again. Goods sourced both locally and from abroad include large-scale awesomeness like the broken triangle styling of the blond wood/ bright red "fabric chair" from Eugene's Studio Gorm, and a multi-colored industrial-goes-pre-school dresser from locals Von Tundra called the Civic Stack, which's also how E. Honda trains in the offseason. For smaller goods, it's heavy-duty stoneware plates from Atelier NL (literally pulled from the mud of the Netherlands), Canada's Loyal Loot bowls made from scooping out/ enameling the inside of found logs, or glass flasks (from local makers Esque) with cork stoppers, also a soccer team of Irish dudes who all play a position slightly above the sweeper.
Aside from functional goods, Woonwinkel also plans to increase its selection of art pieces like the Ruby's Lounge decoupaged wallpaper deer's head -- which luckily isn't a goat's head, considering you do just want a place where a kid can be a kid.
