On tables & gatherings…

Fall and winter are synonymous in my mind with cooking big meals & gathering at home with friends and family. Ever since I picked up a copy of The Kinfolk Table: Recipes For Small Gatherings I’ve been thinking a lot bout the simple dining table and how important it becomes as we enter the season of gatherings & holidays. A table and chairs by themselves are nothing spectacular. They’re a place to sit, and surface to eat upon. But when we bring together a group of people around a table, it’s purpose and meaning can be transformed into something so much more meaningful. It’s a place where we can sit side-by-side with the people we love & linger over old stories and a good bottle of wine. It becomes a connecting point. A hub of togetherness.

We recently set up one of our Barn Wood Tables in the studio & surrounded it with our new Bistro Chairs as a nod to gatherings & to the feelings of warmth and nostalgia that it brings. It’s our hope that these photos will possibly inspire your own holiday table, or at the very least inspire an appreciation for all of the gifts that it gives us. Photos by Amber Gress.
