Heath Ceramics have an elegant, earthy appearance that is simply timeless. Heath Ceramics is one of very few remaining mid-century American potteries. They have been making tableware and tile for over half a century in Sausalito, California and have a 60 or so craftsmen, many of which have been working there for over 20 years. Heath Ceramics now make both flatware, glassware, dishes, vases, kitchen towels, napkins, tablecloths and more.

La Cornue is a French company that have been around for nearly a century, making the most beautiful ranges I have ever seen. Highly luxurious with a European style. It is appliance art.
I favor the CornueFe’ Series. It is their smallest line but still perfectly large enough for any home. The CornueFe’ series comes in two varieties, the 110 and the 90. The 90 has one electric convection ovens where as the 110 has two. Both have 5-burner, gas cook tops and are available in six body colors and three metal trims. These beautiful ranges are of course pricey, the CornueFe’ 90 for $6,800 and the CornueFe’ 110 for $8600 at William Sonoma.

Minnu has recently launched their first collection of carpets called “Industrial” which is inspired by travel and the shifts in the industry and culture of each place. Each carpet is made from historic textiles over 50 years old and they come in 16 different colors, including the “All Nations” carpet, which is composed of all the nations colors. Each carpet is also customizable.
What draws me to these carpets are the deep, rich and vibrant colors as well as the intriguing history they hold. They would make such a beautiful focal point in a room, a piece of art on its own.
