Thank you Jennifer for such a wonderful post!! Love the Luster aesthetic and the way you inspire…
Amenity’s Organic bedding line has long been on my list of bedding to admire, so I was pleased to hear from Helen at Amenity announcing that they are donating 10% of all sales until June 1st to Red Cross for Japanese Tsunami Aid. They have added so many new products to the site that were fun to browse, and their deep commitment to sourcing sustainable/organic products makes you feel doubly proud about your purchase. For more about Amenity and its founders, click here.
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
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.
