“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.
WHAT NATIVE& CO IS ABOUT:
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.
