It’s Spring in LA which means citrus season and the beginning of a slow, dry heat that peaks in brutal heat waves. These hot days bring soft, balmy evenings ideal for outdoor dining. Our wooden tableware was designed with these meals in mind. Rugged and effortless, each piece in the collection reminds us of our favorite kind of meals; one overflowing with food and friends, zigzagging long into the night. We’re cooped up under a stay at home order and spending a lot of time in the garden outside our studio. We did an impromptu shoot with our maple platter and the citrus from trees to capture the bounty of the season and to remind us of the gatherings we’re missing.
