Naihan Li and The Crates

View all 15 Photos

Stackable, moveable, folding furnishings make the most of the space we have, or rather have not. The essentials in The Crates are supplied from wardrobe to casual chair, a honeycomb shelving system and chest of drawers. Emerge yourself in the contentment of less, the willingness to move freely with life’s winds of change. Designer Naihan Li is an architect from Beijing who created this series in reflection of her own mobile lifestyle and in memory of the millions of Chinese workers who migrate each year. She says, “All my creations are designed to improve the life I’m living right now.  To do that you need to understand what life is about. It’s a process.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
