Featured Shop: Less & More

(…) Our items combine classic elegance with streamlined functionality, and turn everyday items into displays that are fun to look at. (…) Our guiding principle is “useful things make fun” because we love making people smile. (…)
My process begins by selecting and cutting logs that have air dried for several years. I also use dozens-of-years-old lumber and reclaimed or salvaged wood, as long as it has exceptional grain or color shades. When the lumber is ready, I plane, drill, sand, finish and polish every single item by hand. (…)
I am convinced that the more you focus on the usability, the more honest the design becomes. Our organizers and home accessories have a fresh and modern feel that leaves space for each user to show off their own personal style. They are crafted with great attention to detail, and are made to last a very long time. (…)
