The team at Clean Eating Magazine was gracious enough to include our new Ebonized Oak Bowls within the fold of the October 2015 issue. These hand-carved bowls are made from sustainably harvested North American White Oak. "Available in small and large sizes, these bowls are ideal for presenting salads or snacks like tortilla chips and guacamole with pizzazz at your next dinner party or potluck."
Check out this great writeup on one of our newest retailers! Many thanks to Avenue Calgary.
If you are looking for soap from Marseille, incense from Japan or an extravagant as a crystal centerpiece, you can now go to Lemonceillo Home.
Owner Jennifer Arrowsmith tries to find brands from the USA and Europe that can’t be found anywhere else in the city, drawing inspiration from inventory in stores in New York and California.
The inventory is always changing, but shoppers can find around 20 different brands in the store at one time. At Lemonceillo, you'll find quality cottons by Uchino, handmade candles by Barrick Design Inc and gorgeous, artisanal cutting boards by the California brand The Wooden Palate. From further away, there are crystal containers from Poland, apothecary containers from France and flowerpots from Spain.
“Lemonceillo is a luxury store, but there’s still something for everyone,” says Arrowsmith.
Excerpt: "Husband-and-wife team Ryan Silverman and Eileen O'Dea — a woodworker and a chef turned woodworker, respectively — create heirloom-quality, handmade cutting boards in Los Angeles. Each requires 150 to 750 wood pieces. The Eileen is a thick rectangle with 2.5-inch legs, which can be purchased separately or as a set with a smaller round board. It's made for daily use and won't show most knife marks because of its end-grain construction. Available in black walnut and fumed oak. $650 (rectangle), $350 (round) at TheWoodenPalate.com."
Excerpt: "These cutting boards made in Los Angeles by woodworkers Ryan Silverman and Eileen O'Dea will stop you in your tracks. End grain, in walnut or fumed oak, they're eminently useful but beautiful enough that you'll want to keep them out on the counter. Note too: The wood is reclaimed and repurposed or else sustainably harvested North American hardwoods. From $395, at various retail outlets and at www.thewoodenpalate.com - words by Angela Graves"
