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!
