weekly wrap up + geoffrey lilge cutting boards

Today I’m heading back home to Brooklyn. Salt Lake City and the Altitude Design Summit were such a blast, but I’m ready to get home to AC and the cats. Before I hop on the plane and check out into magazine la-la land, I wanted to share these amazing new FSC-certified maple and walnut cutting and charcuterie boards from Canadian designer Geoffrey Lilge. Geoffrey’s work is simple perfection at its best — no unnecessary details, just the pure, simple beautiful of wood. Each piece is hand-finished in Geoffrey’s studio with four coats of natural oil and beeswax and would make for a wonderful host/hostess gift or just a nice treat for those of you who love to cook. Click here to see the full collection and find a stockist near you.

I’m hopping on the plane now, so I’ll see you on Monday! Have a fantastic weekend. xo, grace

    So proud to see Alberta representing on Design Sponge!! I visit this site everyday and am constantly inspired by everything on it. Fantastic job!

    That aside, if you are ever in Edmonton, Alberta, please visit the amazing restaurant Culina. The food is delicious, made from mostly local products, and have a warm, cozy feel.

    Hooray Edmonton!
