Mary Anne and I checked out Grey Horne, a new furniture store on Bank Street recently, after a particularly delicious lunch at Carmen’s Veranda (with fellow TBBer, Donna). Having seen the Citizen’s article a few weeks ago on Grey Horne, we were anxious to see it ourselves.
Loved the exterior and the nice pop of colour on a cold grey Ottawa day.
Immediately upon entering we spotted some great gift ideas.
The perfect small space wine holder.
Wine in a bag….anyone? I know a few peeps this would be perfect for….ahem….
Or perhaps a few of these cognac glasses would be the perfect house warming gift.
Grey Horne specializes in furniture custom made in Holland, Denmark and Austria as well as green products. After meeting store owner, James Flynn, Mary Anne and I had a little walk around and did a few sit tests to ensure they were comfortable as well as beautiful. And we have to say that these all passed with flying colours!

So if you’re looking for some midcentury modern styling in your home, be sure to include this store on your rounds.
Donna says: “Well darn, I’m sorry I couldn’t visit this spot with you gals! This looks like a great addition to home stores in Ottawa and what a perfect location. There’s nothing better than spending an afternoon strolling this area of Bank Street!”
Mary Anne says: “Notice how the wine related stuff caught our attention first? A great place to try out statement chairs!”
