The still life has been a subject of art making since antiquity. The genre, classically focused on banal imagery—tableware, flowers, and food—was brought to new, dramatic heights during the Flemish Golden Age with elaborate scenes intricately rendered.

Today, the still life has been reinterpreted by contemporary artists to suit modern life. Artists such as Los Angeles-based Hilary Pecis has adopted the genre and updating the subjects with moments of her own life. Tables filled with wine bottles, hot sauce, and coffee are just as beautiful and stunning as a Rembrandt.

Our collection features some of our favorite riffs on the still life, updated for the modern table.

Storybook characters, full of whimsy and charm, make up our collection of illustration.

Artists that have caught our eye as of late, such as Clare Owen and Lucy Sherston, as well as our own team of talent in-house are curated together. Endearing, and just a little off, these illustrations are little world unto themselves.

An updated take on the glamorous Art Deco style of the 1920s, our collection features hard-edge geometries with brass and gold accents.

Italian sculptor Michele Reginaldi plays off of the visual codes of Art Deco, and simplifies and streamlines. Minimal stylized photography and graphic prints create a cohesive and contemporary take on the classic style.
