“Ja­panese and Tai­wanese tableware are de­signed and made with pu­rity in mind. The ma­te­ri­als are used in an hon­est and nat­u­ral fash­ion,” says Chris Yoshiro Green.

The care­fully cu­rated life­style prod­ucts here stay true to their na­tive ori­gins, namely Ja­pan and Tai­wan. The duo source for hard-to-find, hand­crafted prod­ucts rang­ing from tableware and kitchen­ware to textiles and ac­ces­sories from small sup­pli­ers and lo­cal crafts­men. Each piece cel­e­brates the nat­u­ral beauty of raw ma­te­ri­als and their dis­tinct, sim­ple, quiet, and pure de­signs which are dis­crete in na­ture, with plenty of sub­tle de­tails and well thought-out touches. The col­lec­tions avail­able range from din­ing, kitchen and bath­room ac­ces­sories like bath la­dles and more, to cush­ions and throws, to bags and sta­tionery, all of which are de­signed to com­ple­ment an in­te­rior with­out dom­i­nat­ing it. The well-cu­rated shop is given a per­sonal touch by its founders. They have seen to ev­ery as­pect of Na­tive & Co, from graphic de­sign and pho­tog­ra­phy to the shop’s interiors. Chris has also per­son­ally crafted pieces of fur­ni­ture for the shop.


“We like home­ware pieces which are sim­ple and pure which blend in with the rest of your interiors, so our tip is to not go for any­thing too bold, as these tend to at­tract too much at­ten­tion and can make your in­te­rior un­bal­anced. Keep it sim­ple and pure so it will blend in and last a life­time,” says Chris. Visit www.na­tive­andco.com for more in­for­ma­tion.
