Artist Kaaren Anderson of Solveig Studio and I first met through Instagram. She said she admired my work and invited me to visit her pop up shop located at Schoen Place in Pittsford, NY (in the parking area behind Label 7 and Olives). Her compliment got my attention. I went to her Instagram feed (@solveig_studio) and loved what I saw! I didn’t waste any time in making a visit to the shop. Kaaren greeted me with “I know you from Instagram!” Oh the power of social media!
After an interesting conversation about Kaaren’s background, we found that we had more in common than a love for home décor and design. We share a mutual love for animals. My first home of 15 years was a 5 acre farmette where my husband and I had horses and raised goats and chickens. It turns out that our former home and Kaaren’s current residence, a converted barn, were once part of the same property. It seems that Kaaren and I were destined to meet.
“FLY BY is packed with work from Solveig Studio, including original drawings, plates, platters, coasters, prints, cards and funkified furniture. For two fun filled months, FLY BY’s inventory includes other local talented artists and makers with their unique goods and products.”
(photos above) You will find unique hand painted furniture and accessories in this fun filled shop. This whimsical chair fit for a queen is my favorite piece in the store. Like most of Kaaren’s creations, it features an animal character that she brings to life with its own little story. I love the ostriches Lisa and Amy!
(photo above) There is a nice variety of both blank and holiday greeting cards.
(photos above) Kaaren’s design sense is evident throughout the store as shown in the unique way the merchandise is displayed.
(photo above) Of course I couldn’t resist buying a piece or two to incorporate into my next decorating or home staging project.
(photos above) Fly By is the place to shop for one of a kind furniture pieces. This mosaic tiled chair is sure to be a decorating focal point. You won’t find a lamp like this in a big box store!
(photos above) These ceramic plates are sure to bring a smile to your guests.
Watch for a future collaboration between Leona Piro Interiors, Act Two Home Staging and Solveig Studio. When you visit the shop tell Kaaren that Leona sent you!
