MEDIA | Gray Magazine - akHOME Textiles

Well, we’re officially “the big time” now ;)
Thanks for the mention, Gray Magazine!
[Oct/Nov ‘18 issue on stands or available at Issu - make sure you check out the full issue!]

We love keeping things ‘local’, which to us means we try to manufacture everything as close at hand as possible. Then the only long trip an object may take it to get direct to customers. We love giving - and having - global access to a wide variety of things created in a microcosm.

Local + Global. That’s us.

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!
