Lost and Found is still fairly new to the game, but that hasn’t prevented it from making waves amongst Oakland design fanatics. The shop is a wonderful collection of “furniture, oddities, and art”, and shoppers can find everything from striking vintage furniture, to locally made soaps and skincare products, to fun wall decor. While much of the larger furnishings are beautiful vintage or refinished pieces, some of the pieces we found most stunning were those handmade by Alison, the shop owner.
The set of mid-century modern chairs are made by hand, and the legs of the matching stool were spun on the lathe – the design of each leg is different. Alison also works with light fixtures, and particularly likes touch-to-dim lighting.
This telephone pole light that she made dims and brightens as you touch the wires, and many her other more traditional fixtures function the same way so that you can set the tone of the room just as you like it.
We are absolutely crazy about the chair and stool set that Alison made, as well as the bright green couch and red mid-century modern chairs, which would add some awesome color to a living room or family room.
