Cork Trays


Inspired by more traditional baskets, designer Saif Faisal created a group of cork trays. The soft square, circular, and loop shapes are made from two types of the material – one for the main piece and a second for the strap. They’re so beautifully versatile that you can use them in the kitchen, on your dresser, or even hang them on the wall.







Doucement is an independent textile art and design studio helmed by Monica Hofstadter. The textile objects she creates from natural fibers and radiant plastics blur the line between minimalist art and over the top creature comforts. Each piece is inspired by the love of being home, creating serene moments for the senses, and the magic and spirituality of the tangible world.

A Little Variety with Purely Fancy Feast Filets


Everyone in my house eats grain-free, including me most of the time, so having healthy foods on hand is a must.  And just like my own diet, I like to approach my pets’ diets with a little variety. They may not notice the time and care I put into their food choices, but I know they’re healthier for it and that goes a long way towards my ultimate plan of owning the first immortal cats and dogs. (Mwahahaha!)



A new addition to my cats’ food plans is Purely Fancy Feast Filets. They’re 100% natural filets of real seafood or chicken with no preservatives that can be fed any number of ways. I recruited my cat Rainey to try out all three types of filets – salmon, white meat chicken, and tuna. We opened the salmon first and flaked a bit of it over her everyday kibble, a healthy way to change up the same thing she’s eaten twice a day for the past four years. I knew it was a hit before she even tasted it because her little paws hit the stairs and she came running down before I even called her name!




Next up was what turned out to be Rainey’s favorite, the white meat chicken. I simply broke up the little filet into pieces she could nibble on and set it out for her to discover – which didn’t take long. This option even received her patented “prey shake” before each bite (she reserves it for the foods she approves of most).




The last taste test was the tuna. I set out the entire filet to see what she would do, and I wasn’t sure if Rainey would grab it and run to enjoy elsewhere or just eat off the plate I had set out. Turns out it was a little of both! After licking it all over she took a few bites and then carried it over to her food bowl to enjoy.




Purely Fancy Feast Filets couldn’t have been a bigger hit! I love that you can tell exactly what you’re getting before even opening the package – real food, no by-products, no preservatives. I’m looking forward to introducing them to my two seniors diets as well because I know they’re going to love them just as much.
