McLennan's "palette lamps" ($850) are one-of-a-kind wonders--the shade features photos she's taken of her Oakland neighborhood, Jingletown.
Handmade pipe shelving, filled with treasures like McLennan's art deco space heater lamp ($290), lines some of the store's walls.
One of our favorite new finds at the store, the W&P cocktail kit from Brooklyn's Mason Shaker ($279), includes everything you need to make drinks on the go.
And one of our favorite vintage finds: these quaint mid-century aluminum apple canisters ($150 for four).
What happens when a furniture maker, an antiques collector and an interior designer go into business together? It?s called Lost & Found, and it?s our favorite new place to shop for one-of-a-kind home decor, hands down.
Local longtime friends Alison McLennan, Erik Whitaker and Brooke Livingston joined forces earlier this year to open the Rockridge store, where you can find everything from vintage typewriters to hand-gilded scarab jewelry cabinets.
Each owner really brings something to the table: McLennan crafts gorgeous furniture out of wood, like this cherry settee; Whitaker scours estate sales and flea markets to find gems such as a picnic set in a suitcase ($180); and Livingston brings it all together, arranging the wares in vignettes so you can see how everything will look in your home.
Though the store is an inexhaustible treasure trove, our favorite find by far was Alameda-based Emily Winston?s upcycled lighting fixtures. Clusters of her pendants ($225 each), which are made out of hand-cut St. George Spirits bottles, hang throughout the space from braided copper wires. And her table lamps ($225), also made from bottles and fitted with filament bulbs, radiate that retro-cool look.
Lost and found, indeed.
