Tucked away in a little store front in the quaint Beaumont Village shopping district is Azurro. John the owner finds many of his items he sells in Paris flea markets. Right now he has this beautiful settee covered in a heavy Belgian linen. He also has handmade greeting cards, decoupaged clocks and boxes not John Derian. He makes them in his spare time.
Speciality stores are great for finding unique items and fun to have conversations with the owners. With as much shopping as i like to do. I often become good friends with the owners. Tomorrow I will be in a meeting with a furniture vendor and Friday to the Seattle design centre.
