WHY CORK ,WOOD AND LEATHER?

I am drawn to materials that are natural and beautiful in their raw state. I feel that cork, wood, and leather are both elegant and understated. I wanted to elevate each one by finding unique ways for them to interact within the collection.

FORM VS FUNCTION?

Utility is something I strive for when I’m creating a product. When designing home décor, the beauty of the object is just as important to me as its functionality. For instance, the new leather hanging cork planters can be used as a planter or as a fruit basket, providing versatility for its owner.

WHAT UNITES THIS COLLECTION?

This collection is cohisive in its classic shapes and natural materials. When designing for this season I wanted each piece to be a strong stand-alone object. Each one being an heirloom that someone would cherish and bring out during their most beloved gatherings.
