12/07 • CATTY CATSKILLS SWAP & TALK • Home Goods Exchange & Design Chat, December 7 (3-5 pm) Saturday$0.00
Swap your old goods for new goods and meet author's of Foxfire Living (Eliza Clark, Tim Trojian, Arden Wray) and Foraged Flora (Louesa Roebuck). These designers have a shared ethos of sourcing beauty from what's available all around us, embracing the tales of age, and celebrating the wilderness and imperfections of life. We, too, love creating warm environments that incorporate well-worn and previously-adored objects! Come meet these creative folks and hear them share about discovering what's around you to add depth and meaningful beauty to your world. Please bring a home good you're ready to part with (no larger than what fits in a standard tote bag). In exchange, you can take home what someone else brought. Any unwanted goods leftover will be donated to Help of Ojai.
Foxfire Living is a new book about Eliza and Tim's process of creating the relaxed, bohemian Catskills retreat called Foxfire Mountain House. The design and food of this transcendent inn is guided by nature, science, and curiosity, and informed by its rural location amid the bucolic mountains. The scenery is as much an element of Foxfire’s design as the color scheme; the inn’s old bones are complemented by unique vintage finds; and the meals are sourced from neighboring farms and local crops. Their daughter Arden photographed the world they created and is excited to share those images in their new book.
Louesa is returning to Cattywampus to create gorgeous floral displays that are gathered from farms, gardens, and the wild surrounding Ojai. She will surely inspire new ideas and perspectives on how to incorporate local beauty into your home.
We will have big stacks of both of Foxfire Living and Foraged Flora available for purchase and signing at this event. These books are spectacular in their design and inspiring writings. They would make excellent holiday gifts!
It's not necessary to sign up, but it's helpful for us to know how many people to expect. We will send you a reminder email about the event if you register.
