Featured Shop - Pig and Fish
First of all, I love the name Pig and Fish and next of all, they offer the most delightful contemporary handmade wood items in their shop!
Deb Gill and Nanako O’Donnell make up the team of Pig and Fish. Their two-woman design studio is located on an island in Maine. It's there that they design and fabricate all their products. I'm fortunate to be the proud owner of the sconces in the bottom right corner. I ordered mine in a white wash, though. :)
Pig and Fish started up in 1997 and much of their work derives its inspiration from the Arts & Crafts movement ... simple clean design which fits not only with Craftsman style, but with modern decor as well. Deb and Nanako are guided by the words of William Morris, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
