Provide is showcasing some beautiful pieces from Martha Sturdy in a brand new resin colour – Soft Grey. Robert and I where at Martha's studio a few months back and were lucky enough to witness her experimenting in the creation of this new and unique colour. The grey colour has a beautiful luminosity to it with a subtle marbling effect. We are excited to have this addition to our already strong representation of the Martha Sturdy Collection.

Provide has just received a delivery of beautiful throws and blankets from Spain's Teixidors. We discovered Teixidors while attending Maison et Objet in Paris last fall and are very excited to now represent this unique collection in our store.
Teixidors' products are made entirely by hand using classic wool looms – the best raw materials (Merino wool, cashmere, cotton and linen) are used and follow a strictly manual process. The collection consists of a wide range of styles and colours utilizing these natural materials. The "Sisteron" throws (pictured above with the yellow and orange trim) are made from 100% ecological merino wool.

Provide is very excited to add Geoffrey Lilge to our roster of Canadian talent. Geoffrey is an acclaimed Canadian designer with recognition from ICFF, MOMA, The New York Times and Wallpaper Magazine just to name a few. His recent collection of Charcuterie / Cutting Boards was born from the task of outfitting the kitchen and dining room of his wife Cindy's new restaurant – Culina Highlands. These beautiful boards are hand-made from a single piece of wood, have easy-to-hold oversize handles and have a hand polished natural oil and beeswax finish. The boards are available in various sizes and shapes and come in Maple and Walnut – we think they make a stunning addition to our tableware collection.
