Best new store for furniture and odd ceramics

Utotem Furniture

There used to be a convenience store chain in certain parts of the country called UtoteM, which was bought out by Circle K in the mid-80s. Pilsen’s year-old Utotem Furniture is nothing like those. One of the shop’s three owners, Jordan Grimes, is a furniture designer, and his work is sold in the store. His pieces are rustic, bringing together bits of ancient-looking wood and vintage metal fixtures to create furnishings that feel incredibly modern. Utotem also sells jewelry and ceramics in keeping with the shop’s hip aesthetic. If you’re in the market for a yellow ceramic phallus with a frowny face, you’re in luck.
