Maple Set. I WANT.
“The focus is drawn to the high polished blade, while the rest of the knife’s Maple wood body sits warmly in the hand and blends in to its surroundings. The wood is sealed and food safe to allow for easy cleanup. The knife gives the appearance of being lightweight; however their weight is balanced to ensure that they can be used by any level of chef.”
The Federal = Ian Murchison and Rohan Thakar, the industrial Designers behind the Ottawa-based design company. They produce Canadian-designed, sourced, and manufactured goods. Mad props.

Black Marble = Chris Stewart and Ty Kube. I’m adoring their 2012 LP A Different Arrangement – a wicked album with unique simple sounds that carry over…. and over…

That’s it. The cat’s out of the bag. I’ve now just shared one of my most highly prized bookmarks. If you’re not already familiar with it, Foodpairing.com is a brilliant site, that I personally spend way too much time visiting, wide eyed and mesmerized. If you dig food and have a creative mind – you’ll appreciate the mind-blowing inspiration. The video above is great as it gives you an idea of the possible (endless) pairings one could combine with coffee.

The ultimate bio-degradable disposable plates/cutlery = materials on point AND nice design (this is incredible hard to source fyi). Square plates – with greater surface area – made of Certified organic bamboo—a renewable resource. Biodegradable and compostable, the bamboo is grown without fertilizers, cured and then hand cut and selected for peeling. This product is chemical and pesticide-free, no bleaches or dyes. Beautiful aesthetic.
