Stria Storage Collection

Stria Storage Collection

Back in woodshop we used to take pieces of previously used lumber and construct various home furnishings that we would try and pass off as gifts for family members.  If we built them ourselves no one could complain that their end table wobbled or the drawer on their nightstand was “just for show.”  What we were gunning for however was something like the pieces in the Stria Storage Collection from West Elm.  After supporting the travel of trains in India in years past these pieces of solid saal wood have been reclaimed and reborn as the drawer fronts to these rustic furnishings.  The rest of the frame is built with solid mango and acacia all with a honey finish.  Just like a bunch of manly, sanded snowflakes, no two pieces are alike.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
