Inspired Inheritance

Design December 12th, 2012


With the holiday’s looming, we’ve put together a collection of beautiful items of the highest quality. Truly timeless, these pieces won’t lose value as soon they’re unwrapped. As you can see, tradition doesn’t have to look entirely traditional.

Since the holidays are all about family, and why not give a gift that’ll be celebrated in your family for years to come? It’s so much more meaningful to use serving wear or dishes that have been passed through your family, and it always produces a smile to think of all the nights you’ve spent together. So here’s to inspired inheritance. Enjoy!
