Comments Off on Blogger’s Style: Mackenzie Clarke from The Standard Issue

Mackenzie Clarke is EQ3’s February Blogger of the Month! Mackenzie is the Co-Founder and Editor of The Standard Issue, a Calgary-based blog that shares the best Canadian shops, spots and emerging talent! She blogs on everything from home decor and fashion, to music, food and drink, travel, and more…all with a focus on local style.


Today, Mackenzie’s showing us how she’s worked EQ3’s popular Round Solid Teak Wood Stool into her home office – the space where all The Standard Issue magic happens!




There is nothing better than a bright and fresh space to spend your working day, and my home office is my favourite place to be with tons of light and room to get things done. In addition to being a cozy spot to work in the evenings, this is also one of those spaces that has to transform daily to meet the needs of our small business. It is a room where it, and everything in it, need to play double duty on more than one occasion.


“I appreciate a natural palette when decorating all areas of my home, and this Solid Teak Wood Stool is the perfect accent to, well, everything! Whether I’m in a modern mood or feeling a little more eclectic with my styling, this piece really works in every situation. Great for someone known to switch it up often! It is currently ideal as a spot to house a little greenery, and has already saved the day as an impromptu step stool as we finish off hanging art in our living room. From nightstand to foot stool to the perfect perch for a cocktail during a night with friends, it becomes a statement in any space.” – Mackenzie Clarke, The Standard Issue
