Whether we're hunting for gifts or seeking adornment for our own pads, our eyes are always peeled for unique kitchen and table finds.
But trolling behemoth sites like Amazon or even Etsy has led to ocular fatigue. So we were relieved to come across a spate of smallish, hyper-focused online stores of late, which offer goods meticulously culled by individuals with great taste.
Bookmark these sites for future shopping; your eyes will thank you.
Herriott Grace: This bicoastal project between Nikole Herriott and her father, Lance, features gorgeous wood dishes ($135), spoons ($240) and bowls ($265), which Lance makes by hand in limited quantity. Nikole maintains the site (and the recipe-rich blog) and is responsible for the lush photography.
