Entertaining is our love language, from extravagantly glorious weddings and events to more intimate affairs at home. Our rentals are always curated to reflect your personal style and aesthetic, but we have to admit that we love a brand with an amazing origin story. Our newest offerings from Caskata fit the mold with a showstopping sentiment.
WOMEN WHO OWN IT
As a women-owned and operated business ourselves, we lean towards embracing brands that share their seat with females at the helm. Principle Designer + President Shawn Laughlin sits at the head of the Caskata brand, working through issues we can all identify with (cash flow, manufacturing components, market dominance by corporate players) while staying inspired by her love of entertaining around a beautiful environment where people gather and linger. Laughlin wanted to make dinnerware based on formal traditions that were far from stuffy. She believes cooking is a creative way of expressing love, and sharing that with family and friends brings us much joy. Thus, Caskata was made for those who love gathering around the table, with good food, and drink, who also love sharing stories for those laugh until you cry kind of evenings. (I mean, we might be soulmates.)
WHY WE CHOSE IT
Caskata is one of only a handful of ateliers of its kind in the United States. Each piece is beautifully created with handmade bone china and porcelain, drawing inspiration from the coastal New England landscapes as well as formative years in New York in Paris. (Be still our hearts!) The focus on contemporary motifs keeps these traditional pieces timeless and fresh, making them true modern-day heirlooms. We were immediately drawn to the meticulous attention to detail and their ability to translate well with our more is more mentality when mixing with our current collections. Simply put, Caskata makes china that is elegant without being fussy. Making everything beautiful is an integral part of the dining experience, and this brand more than succeeds.
