With her love of interior design and his passion for architecture, Chelsea Cabot and Kris Konieczko are constantly finding furnishings they can't live without.

Their already-too-crowded Short North apartment, however, can't handle much more.

So Objects for the Home, which the couple opened in Clintonville this summer, is a perfect way for the couple to get their home-decor fix.

Parting with their favorite finds - mostly borderline-shabby-chic vintage items - is easier when they know something's become a shopper's favorite, Cabot said.

"We never get attached to things - because people get so excited when they buy something that you're not like, 'Oh, I'm missing that,'" Cabot said.

"Because they love it," Konieczko added.

He said smaller pieces are among the most loved.

"We try to think about the area when we're out gallivanting around finding stuff," Konieczko said.

Most of Objects for the Home's desks, bed frames, drop-leaf tables and serving trays were found at auctions or in off-the-beaten-path pockets of Ohio by the owners or Konieczko's parents.

Cabot and Konieczko reupholster, paint and weather plenty of the items before they're sold.

Some of the objects in the shop last week, like a rolling metal platform, came straight out of an old factory and needed no repairs - flecks of yellow paint are missing after years of use, but that only adds charm.

Complementing the constantly changing inventory of furniture and housewares are pieces handmade by local artists - most with a vintage aesthetic. Wrapped-canvas photos by a New Albany artist show scenic views and striking close-ups. Crisp-smelling soaps are handmade and cut in German Village.

You'll also find jewelry. Fabric-flower necklaces, steampunk-inspired rings and bracelets, and vintage brooches-turned-necklaces are among the selection. Fitting with the shop's homey vibe, some of the jewelry is housed in muffin tins.

And for customers whose homes need a new vibe, Cabot and Konieczko will soon offer in-home design services to restyle a home's existing look while incorporating items from the store.

"Most people know what they like," Konieczko said, "they just don't know how to get there."
