Domesticity x Lanai
Some things just go together really well. Like scones and clotted cream, peanut butter and jelly, coffee and doughnuts, Domesticity and Lanai. With Domesticity's practical and elegant home accessories with a rustic provincial flair and Lanai's unique and eclectic brand of lifestyle pieces through their Casa line, this partnership was just waiting to happen. This month of May brings you a line of limited edition dining entertaining accessories, thoughtfully created by the two stylish brands. We spoke to Natalia Zobel, among the 3 co-founders of Lanai, to find out more about the collaboration:
What made you decide to collaborate with Domesticity on entertaining pieces for the home?
For the collection, we were looking to develop home accessories with a local brand, specific for dining and entertaining at home. Being Filipino, we love to invite family and friends over to share great conversations, laughter, and of course, a sumptuous meal. So we knew we needed to create a line for dining and entertaining . We wanted to work with Domesticity as they have beautiful wooden pieces with an elegant simple style to make our vision come through.
Can you describe your style of entertaining at home?
When we entertain at home, we try to create an environment which is easy and comfortable. Nothing too stuffy or formal. And we usually invite only our closest friends and family, sharing a feast of comfort food. We also make sure to create a relaxing but vibrant atmosphere with tropical flowers.
Which is your favorite Domesticity x Lanai piece?
I love all of them! But if I were to choose just one, my favorite would have to be the Lila Chips and Dips Set! Firstly because it is just so pretty, but definitely because I'm a "saucy" girl with my food. Filipino food always needs sauce! This set makes entertaining chic and practical.
The makers of Domesticity and Lanai agree, that entertaining at home should always be a unique and unforgettable experience. Domesticity's Kitchen and Dining accessories, along with Lanai's line of clothes (Ropa), as well as floral arrangement services (Flores), help make that possible. The limited edition Domesticity x Lanai collection is available through www.mydomesticity.com until May 31st.
