I found this and I have to pass it on. If you wince at the wastefulness each time you reach for the tin foil or plastic wrap, then abeego is the perfect solution. It’s all natural, reusable food wrap made from a hemp/cotton fabric and they add a blend of beeswax and plant extracts to it.
I LOVE this! – Kristina, co-founder

Our new collection of table accessories feature the work of the Mapuche weavers in Chile. They use un-dyed sheep’s wool grown harvested by their own people and hand-weave the wool on these wooden looms. The beauty and simplicity of their work astounds me. – Kristina, co-founder

My friend Sophie Bergé from Sophie Nova has such exquisite taste! Her style is so effortless and chic. I love that the alpaca pillows feels so at home there. She just came out with more gorgeous, handmade leather accessories that are locally made here in los angeles. Go to www.sophienova.com to see her beautiful designs. – Kristina, co-founder
We are all in love her with her poufs! They’re made locally and are filled with natural buckwheat and so lovely you’ll never grow tired of them.

The LA Times featured our coat rack along with 9 others. We’re loving the warmth and simplicity of the Muir rack but also love the tree design by Cascando. It can hold 20 coats. Now that’s beauty and function!

Thanks LA Magazine! Such a nice write-up and we are loving all the people coming to the showroom that found us in the article.
The sunny loftlike space that’s home to AMENITY (453 S. Spring St, Suite 508, downtown, 213 624-7309 or www.amenityhome.com) is filled with products that would make any environmentalist happy. Nicole Chiala and Kristina de Corpo, both designers and young mothers, started the business in 2004 and specialize in organic fabrics colored with eco-friendly dyes. The pair imports the works of South American artisans, such as Chilean place mats and woven table runners made from the undyed wool grey and brown sheep. Hemp-cotton place mats and table runners as well as cotton duvet covers and sheets with fern motifs are sewn locally. The nursery collection features pillows and cotton baby blankets bearing rabbits, ducks, squirrels and deer that look as if they stepped out of a storybook.
