INTRODUCING | Food Tables - Elevate your Dining!

While I get excited about pretty much everything I create, Food Tables have been a passion project from the very beginning. Dreamed up about two years ago, it took time to find *JUST* the right artisans to work with. I can’t even tell you how many times I had to slip “GEEZ, I’d love to find an artisan welder!” casually into conversations LOL!

Even when you find the right people to work with, and you have a BRILLIANT idea (hah), you still have to work out what each material can and cannot do. Who knew FLAT ceramics would be such a puzzle?! Such is the manufacturing beast, even with a solid idea, even with the right people - it takes time, prototyping, money, and enduring failures as often as successes.   

I love it.  And I love our new Food Tables! Perfect as I’d imagined for creating levels of food to display or reach on a bustling, curated table top without having to resort - yet again - to the ubiquitous cake stand. For even greater variation, there are TWO - and they nestle lovingly along the way <3

Get a set while you can - manufacturing is often limited here at akHOME, as everything is locally made by select artisans. Don’t forget to tag #MYakHOME and @foodfurniture in your posting so we can add your beautiful displays to our Stories on Instagram!

We're so excited for Pantone's #coloroftheyear, that we've REVAMPED our Fraser Pillow!! Now featuring 100% Silk SOLID front and a 50/50 Linen/Cotton back, it's definitely upped it's luxury factor! How are you incorporating Ultra Voilet this year?

While we don't always follow specific trends, once in awhile they serendipitously match up with colors you already know and love. Just as fortunate - our Laguna Violeta also matches!
