Private Label

Live Edge Table

This gorgeous piece of wood is a simple statement of natural beauty. Hand made in-house, using a low-VOC finish. The light wood color displays accents of pink and dark brown from this elderwood tree.

Jamie Dietrich

Bottle Art

 

Diversity, history, and casual beach living are a continual inspiration for Jamie Dietrich. Her Southern Californian roots run through her handcrafted one-of-a-kind decor.

We love her work because she always finds unique ways to bring new life to something, while letting it’s history come through.

These pieces – the natural sea life, the geodes, the antlers – were hand selected by Jamie.

It’s a perfect little splash of nature and art for a display area.

History Behind

Hat Molds

Women entrepreneurs and well-paid, skilled workers are celebrated today, but in the 19th century there were just a few ways for most women to aspire to this.

One of the paths to independence was hat-making, or millinery. 

Women of almost all social classes purchased made-to-order clothes from a milliner or dress-maker usually in a small shop from a female entrepreneur.

Hat molds like these now hold a rich story of women fighting to be treated fairly

Water Meter

Side Tables

An airplane hull, pieces of an old neighborhood, and a giant pepper sculpture. 

These are all things you might find in a Cisco warehouse, slated to be reclaimed someday.

Part of the sustainability mission is reclamation, which can lead to some really interesting pieces. Like these side tables. Cisco Pinedo partners with developers who will call him when they are tearing down a structure, or in this case, a neighborhood. 

He will go in beforehand and salvage many of the parts and pieces to keep them from going to the landfill. Then his team designs items from them.

Carved & Reclaimed

Cabinets

The hand-carved doors of these cabinets hold layers of history. 

The double doors open to a shelf. 

Textile

Printing Screens

Textile printing in its many forms dates back centuries.

Printing Screens were used to imprint vibrant patterns onto natural fabrics like linen, cotton or silk.

The screens themselves can often be prettier than the end product, making them perfect for decorative display.

Repurposed Brake

Rotor Tables 

In another life, these were parts of a car.

95% of all vehicles are reclaimed, making them the most recycled consumer product in the world.

However, the reclamation process is energy intensive, and a quarter of each car can still end up in a landfill.

Luckily, upcycling skips the line. Each of these brake rotors had to be hand-taylored, resulting in an unexpected and original item.
