A modern home is more than a shelter, it tells the personal story of those that live there through objects, textiles, and color. The Storied Table celebrates the personal stamp that each of us puts in our home through a carefully edited collection of globally sourced hand crafted dinnerware, tabletop and textile products.
We believe that setting a stunning table for family and friends is one of the great joys of entertaining. The dining table is where so much of the spirit of the home resides and where stories and memories begin. Lovingly selected tabletop items all contribute to the life less ordinary.
As we curate our Storied Home collection, we gravitate toward the artful and functional, with an eye toward the cultural, the textured, and organic neutral color palette.
Through elevating the everyday business of life into the marvelous realm of eating and entertaining we are hoping to excite you with our unique discoveries and contribute to your own “Storied Home”.
Meet our Founder, Wendy
I launched The Storied Table as a way to share my own personal discoveries of hand selected objects that make a house a “home”.
As creative director of our sister brand, Entertaining Company, I have often been asked to select a few “special” items to elevate a client home in preparation for entertaining. Residential intimate gatherings that feature great food and conversation have always been favorites at our catering company. Objects selected can be impactful, streamlined, evocatively aged, luxe, weathered or even quirky.
Textiles can be hand finished and, or, hand dyed creating a patchwork of possibilities for entertaining. In all cases, objects are lovingly selected and add a layer to the personal entertaining space. The Storied Table is my way of expanding on the wish for more quality time enjoying great food, family and friends around a beautiful table!
Travels for the first collection of The Storied Table have taken me to places as far away as India, Mexico, Germany and Italy and as close to home as maker studios in Chicago, Brooklyn and San Francisco.Future product and inspiration trips include Copenhagen and Paris. We will continually search out, as well as design, unique handcrafted entertaining ware, textiles, ceramics, and other tabletop elements in the hope that your time with family and friends around the table is meaningful (and beautiful). We look forward to collaborating with you on your own personal “Storied Table”.
