Ladder Display

If you have visited Cambie at any of the markets, you may have noticed that we use a ladder to display our blankets. I scoured this city to find the perfect A-frame ladder but had no such luck finding what I envisioned, so I settled for the next best thing. My paint covered, story telling ladder has travelled close to me to photo shoots and flea markets over the last six months, but I finally decided to work with a talented carpenter and friend, Brennan Finlay, to design the ladder of my dreams. I wanted a ladder that was wider than average, to neatly fold the blankets for optimal display. And if you follow Cambie by any means, I'm sure you've come to the realization that I'm a sucker for furniture with character and texture. Brennan paid special attention to my wish list and made me this beautiful, custom made ladder using salvaged Douglas-fir beams from the Distillery District in Toronto and hand polished, galvanized steel rungs. Here are a few snapshots of some of my favourite details: I'm completely in love with this ladder and can imagine all of the different functions it will have in my house one day. You can find Brennan's contact information here. Make sure to keep an eye out because you'll be seeing a lot of this ladder (and probably Brennan too!).
