Fab Finds at Hi+Lo Modern

01Nov06

Oops. I had saved this entry for Halloween (an homage to orange is the best that I can do) so it’s being served a tad bit late. I found these pumpkin-colored beauties at Hi+Lo Modern, an excellent vintage boutique for modern wares. Many fab finds to be had if you particularly like Scandinavian style pieces.

They just don’t make manual wind clocks anymore, but after hearing about the draining effects of sleeping in bedrooms with too much electricity, I’m thinking of going this way myself. How fun are these? Vintage and apparently unused. Available in orange or hot pink, $80

    Excelent resource! Does HiLo Modern have a physical store, or is it all web based? I couldn’t tell from their site.

    Hey Brandon,

    Sorry for the delayed response but I had meetings all day. Hi+Lo is based in New York, but as far as I know they are sell online only But you could e-mail them and see if they have an on-the-ground store.

    That’s great you found one in Colorado! I’m convinced they must be everywhere. If you find some gems, let us know!

    Are they as green as they might seem. Surely we think that secondhand is recycled so it must be green? But what if the timbers were sourced from Malaysia or Indonesia which do not support sustainable forest practises or Sth America? Does the hotel industry rely on the resale of these items and factor that into their initial purchase? Are thse items really supporting unsustainable forest practices?
    Just playing devils advocate.
    I liked your site.

    Moduli,

    You raise a really really good point. It’s a hairy area to compare what’s more green: buying second hand non-green goods, or buying new pieces that required additional energy and resources to fabricate. There’s no perfect answer, and I personally advocate both buying used and buying new green. They both have their benefits.

    Anyone else want to weigh in?
