Grand Openings, no matter what, are big deals and we couldn’t be more excited,……
Somewhere in between high end furniture stores and vintage shops lies the land of OMFORME; We’ve been funk-ifying vintage goods into “Hot House” drool worthy design for many of the local shops around the twin cities and now we are thrilled to be opening our first ever Pop-Up Shop right in the heart of Minneapolis’ Warehouse District. You’ll find artfully re-imagined vintage furniture along with brightly coloured home goods that just can’t be found anywhere else. We would absolutely love for you to join us during the opening night festivities with food & wine from local restaurants, nationally recognized local art phenomenon: Drew Beson, and of course, all our goodies waiting for you to take a gander at. We promise, you’ll have loads of fun!
POP-Up Shop December 1st
211 N 1st Street Suite 150, Minneapolis
food, booze, fun, frivolity, good finds
It’s been a long road and lots of hoarding of some really special items,..like the fabulous super rare 1970s Niels Eilersen sofa above that we’ve been holding onto for such an occasion as this. Just a note for those who haven’t heard of Omforme,….be prepared as this ain’t no regular vintage shop. We work untold amount of hours to resurrect and revamp every piece of furniture until it turns into a work of art; guaranteeing that when you see our things, you’ll be looking at something very special.
Here’s a few of the other items you will be seeing when you stop by:
1949 Highboy in white lacquer & Walnut, Mod Swivel chair in cut velvet, Rosenthal dinnerware, mid century double tiered floor lamp.
We will also be keeping you up to date on the transformation of our retail space as new things are added, new artwork hung, new beginnings and newly found joy is released onto the public. And now for a few very important blurbs about the feature players who have generously given of their time and talents to help make this magical experience ready to happen.
Feature Artist: Drew Beson
Enormous canvases filled with vibrant colors and bold movement typify my paintings. If it is too big to pick up, I feel like I have succeeded. The rest of the success of the work I attribute to the genius- Gwynn. I am neither the person I was, or who I will be. We are in a continual state of homeostasis; a state of total and perfect equilibrium, a state of both regeneration and decay- Every cell in our body regenerates approximately every 7 years, all 7 billion or so of them. At best, you are seeing an episode of my work. By definition, an episode is ” a part of a dramatic work: akin to a chapter of a book.” I want you to see the work honestly, in real-time and as far from perfection. I also hope and pray that the work spontaneously combusts shortly after being shown, (thanks Kiki) so enjoy it while it lasts.
