Opening Day for Urban and Loft is March 21st 10-4 and every third Saturday through October. We are also open by appointment weeknights and weekends. Let us help you with a unique piece of home decor, whether we have built it, repurposed it, or curated it, you will love it!
Hello!!!! Looking back it has been awhile since we updated our blog so figured it would be a great opportunity to say hello to our fans and welcome to our newest followers! We are Suzi & Sam aka Urban & Loft. We are a husband & wife team with 3 kids, 2 Great Danes (Reuben can be visited at our shop) & we also have a cat. 😉 We thought we would focus today on some of our frequently asked questions: One of the questions we get asked most often is “When are you open”? The answer: We are open the third Saturday of the month from 10-4. Basically, if the Downtown Canton Flea is going on you will find Suzi there, and Sam is at our shop on 2nd St SE in the Canton Ohio Warehouse District in the old Power House. Next question is “Why aren’t we open more often”. The answer: As a husband and wife team, we do not have any employees. So, aside from a full time job that we must work around, we also need time through the month to find the unique antique items that we sell in our shop as well as have time to “create” our one-of-a-kind pieces.
“Do we buy?” Short answer: yes! Long Answer: We buy based on a particular “style” we have. The item has to “speak” to us. Our typical purchases are made out of what others may call a scrap pile. 🙂 Architecturally interesting pieces of steel from old machinery, factories or farm implements have made some of the most fascinating table and bench legs for the live edge wood slabs and old lumber we buy. An old tractor hood became a unique tall table. Jeep Grills have become wall art. Basically, if you have an old barn full of stuff that hasn’t been touched in years, we can most likely find something we will want to buy out of it! 😉 While we have an appreciation for ALL things crafted well, we are bent more toward the unique, industrial, 20s/30s/40s era.
“Do we consign?” Short answer: Yes! Long Answer: Again, we are very particular about what we consign in order to keep with the overall “feel” of the shop.
Feel free to email us: firstname.lastname@example.org or text us: 234-360-1480 if you think you have something we would be interested in–or if you have a question we haven’t covered in this post! 🙂
Opening day for Urban & Loft is officially April 27th 2019!
We have a lot of fun in store that day! First– joining us on opening day inside Urban & Loft are our friends and local small business owners: Corissa & Ryan of Peach tree and Honeybee, Vivian of The Bohemian Mama, Debbie of Cake Wasted, Lisa of The Selah Life, Ryan and Jacki of White Church Co, and AJ of Strung Out Jewelz!

The winning doesn’t end there….The Spring Through The Warehouse Event will be happening that day! Who could use $550 just for visiting 11 shops on Downtown Canton’s East Side (including Urban and Loft)??
Sam and I cannot wait to see you or meet you for the first time at our 2019 Opening!
Oh my goodness! A year has gone by already and we are still creating, still loving our space, and even better….still married! HA! Last night, as I was working on a new item for the shop, Sam asked me what I liked most from all the pieces we built last year….I mean, how do you answer that? Its like asking what child you love the most! Let’s take a look back….here are the benches:
♫Oh the weather outside is frightful…♫ but we have been very busy preparing Urban & Loft with all the warm fuzzy’s the holiday season brings for December 8th–our FINAL open event until Spring! Let’s walk through the front doors shall we?
Inside you are going to find 6 of our very good friends and small business owners– Peachtree & Honeybee, StrungOut Jewelz, Salt & Light Coffee Co, Selah Life, White Church & Co, and Cake Wasted! A perfect way to one stop shop your way through gifts and stocking stuffers such as edibles, candles, jewelry, and more! Treat yourself to a nice cup of Arabica coffee and a cupcake as well! Do you want something free? How about a chance to win a basket full of goodies from each of us?
Moving toward the back will be all things Urban & Loft! I know you want a sneak peak!
I LOVE all the twinkling lights!
Did I mention there is also a 20% off sale?? Yep! 20% off all furniture…and since there is always an exclusion, we have one as well. Only the locker is excluded from this furniture sale 🙂
If you are looking for a really unique gift for someone, we have it….custom made furniture from coffee tables, media tables, kitchen islands and pub tables, to one-of-a-kind wall art. There are plenty of vintage and antique items to choose from as well.
I’m starting to feel like an info-mercial….”but that’s not ALL”…. We’ve coordinated our last opening to coincide with the Holiday Discovery Tour of the Canton Warehouse District! You can view all the participating businesses and download a special map to find your way around! Simply visit ALL of our business between 10-4 on December 8th and be entered into a drawing for a pre-paid Visa card worth over $400!!!!
We are looking forward to seeing you and wishing you and yours a very very VERY happy and healthy Holiday Season!
What do you do with a stack of old factory carts?
Well…you turn that top one there, into an amazing kitchen island!
The wood is all original that we cleaned, sanded, and applied a few coats of spar urethane in a satin finish.
Next came the legs. These are custom made from square steel tubing…really heavy duty steel sourced locally. I mean, they have to be heavy duty because the top of the island is a custom welded steel angle iron frame with a solid piece of reclaimed slate from an old schoolhouse!
Did we say slate? In a kitchen? As a countertop? You betcha! Aside from being flat out gorgeous, slate is non porous…so go ahead and spill your wine! Ever have a party where your guests bring hot food and marred the finish on your granite? No worries with slate! With our custom design, you dont have to worry about chipping the edges either! They are all covered inside the frame!
Now you can’t have a kitchen island without a pot rack right? This 30″ gourmet pot rack made by Rogar is perfect!
I love the clean lines! It finishes off this cart nicely!
We will be adding an industrial style floor brake to the island this week…because we also have three kids who would have a field day flying down the hallway with it! (I was going to say in their younger years, but who am I kidding? Even I want to take it for a spin!) 🤣🤣🤣
32″ wide x 62″ long x 35″ high
Available to view by appointment or during our “open events”
When you find a perfect original chippy white cupboard you do not turn away! This is such an awesome original farmhouse storage solution. I can see it as a pantry cupboard in the kitchen, a beautiful wardrobe closet for storing linens, or in the entry way for coats and shoes?
After the initial drooling over this statement piece, you start noticing details like the 1920’s victorian bird and tulip bin pull on the drawer…
Then the ornate round door latch…
Finally you look inside and glory glory hallelujah look at that bare wood!
She’s rustic, she’s solid, she’s true vintage, and she is most CERTAINLY fabulous!
Reclaim and renew….it’s what we do with our home goods and furnishings that we create, and it’s what we are doing with our lives! Today is the day we’ve been so excited about!!! Moving day! yes, we have outgrown our garage and have decided to move into this spectacular workspace which will also be a gallery of our one of a kind creations for your home! We will still be at all the makers markets but now when we are asked “do you have a store?” we can answer YES! Stay tuned for more info regarding hours and more pictures!!!
