The Tokyo table by Loïc Bard grants a subtle wave of gentleness, low to the ground with rounded edges extending quietly for the magazine compartment below. Pale maple wood finished in natural oil glides gently throughout from table top to the tripod legs. The artist’s inspiration comes after a trip to Japan, “I designed this table while remembering the sober atmosphere, the simplicity of the utensils, and the rustic environment of the tea ceremony.” Handmade of fine craftsmanship out of his Montreal workshop. It’s presence is cool calm and collective, a practical piece provoking balance and relaxation in absolute zen.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
