Reclaiming Nature

As the summer slowly comes to an end here in the beautiful Bay Area, we're gearing the shop up for the upcoming fall season with new products that we feel truly emanate the spirit of evolving nature within the home.

Our owner & product designer Wendy, is always on the local hunt for raw materials for us to re-work, and with a more recent fascination with "found wood", she's created and curated a petite collection of varying deadwood & driftwood based objects along with hardware by local designer Willa Mamet to resourcefully decorate your dwelling space with.
