Arrowhead

Someday, I want a home with white washed floors and if i'm lucky, some weathered white brick...and if that dream so happens, I'm purchasing these modern and playful hairpin tables from Arrowhead.

Arrowhead is a small craft operation based in Durham, North Carolina. The team produces a multitude of custom pieces using local, native hardwoods and salvaged heart pine. These blocky hairpin swivel stools quickly caught my eye, made of red oak and mild steel. 

Here in the South, we love a good bench and this one is a true piece of art, made of tornado salvaged walnut and a steel base. 

This porch swing is beautifully constructed without even one fastener...just rope and some crafty engineering. To see the entire current collection of handcrafted pieces by Arrowhead, just click here.

The Nesting Trivet

A picture has power. Like this one, which is beautifully composed and highlights a product I can't help but want to know more about. I saw this on Instagram yesterday and knew I had to share. Turns out, Erin Connelly and Kerry Clark Speake of The Commons in Charleston recently collaborated with Durham based company, Arrowhead, to create these stunning walnut and brass nesting trivet sets.

As shared on their site, this trivet serves three functions; "As a classic trivet set for your hot pots, nested together to create a sculptural fruit bowl or simply as a decorative work of art on your kitchen table."

It's a beauty- and what a wonderful gift idea too. It's the type of household item to covet and use year after year after year. Incredible work guys. To continue to be awed by Erin and Kerry's originality, check out the beautiful goods they've created and curated for their impeccable shop, The Commons, here.
