I’ve been curious about Greenland for a while. From the first time we all learned about Greenland’s naming to a few years ago when my friend married a native Greenlander. It’s a mystery because I have no purpose to take me there and getting there would be an enormous effort. I design and create, so I wondered what they create…
The tremendous native culture there has centuries of history in their ability to sustain. Fishing practices have been passed on through generations and one of the oldest crafts is kayak building. Greenlanders have long been some of the best kayakers in the world, but should probably also be hailed for building some of the most beautiful boats in the world.
Cheers to maintaining beautiful transitions! Have a lovely weekend!

DVF Zarita dress was picked out for me by my sister, Carrie (thank god for fashionable sisters!). She owns it in coral, and I wore it to her wedding in Navy The lace detail around the neck is so elegant, and the snug fit is flattering on anyone!
Me with my sisters! Carrie is the beautifully glowing bride in the middle!
You all must have missed seeing the kiddos! (And Zander looks good too!)
Matt’s brother, John, and I were feeling pretty good about our siblings’ union!

I first went to From The Source, in Brooklyn NY, when Jordy (you should all know that’s my ever on-point younger sister) told me there was a shop near her Brooklyn apartment I would die for. She didn’t specify that I would actually be going to an enormous warehouse filled with the most most amazing and beautiful selection of reclaimed and sustainable woods. So when I walked in, it’s safe to say I was completely bowled over! I’ve recommended From The Source for nearly every project I’ve worked on (including my grad school thesis) since that first visit. Here are just a few of my favorite examples of what they offer.
Mango Wood. You can buy live edge slabs or request custom orders from a table top to the whole table.
Meh Wood. Joined into a beautiful surface.
And… not to blow your mind with even more, but to convey the extent of what they have to offer (we ARE talking about a full warehouse here…), here is some of the furniture that they now offer!
Cache Media Table, in Teak
Perch Bar Stool – I actually have this on order. And LOVE it.
Kai Desk, in Sonokeling Wood.
