snowe: a home essentials giveawayOctober 8, 2015
The days are getting shorter. There are no two ways about it. 6:30 pm and I find myself scurrying home, lighting candles, turning on the oven. Roasted vegetables are back on the rotation. (And so are chocolate chip cookies.) Just the other day James and I started to muse about hosting a hot cider party. ‘Tis the season, afterall.
In hosting gatherings of any stripe, it’s useful to have some hardworking items for serving. Things like plates and bowls and mugs for the cider. Whenever people write to me with recommendations for dinnerware, my answer is the same: Keep it simple. A plain white plate can be dressed up or down and it always lets the food play the starring role. It won’t go out of fashion. It’ll never clash with the tablecloth. When it’s time to pass the collection on to children headed into their own first homes, no one will look askance at a collection of white plates.
The folks at Snowe agree. They say: “Sometimes the cliché gets it right. In design and in life, simplicity drives the best experiences.” Snowe is a brand new home essentials brand bringing high quality home goods direct-to-consumers. Attention to detail, quality of craftsmanship, and luxury goods at attainable prices are tenets of their brand. From product design to packaging these guys have innovated a collection of home essentials that makes sense.
Overwhelmed with the choices on offer, the founders—a couple who know first hand the business of making a home together—decided to fill a void with thoughtful, carefully sourced, and simple home essentials in four categories: eat, drink, sleep, and bathe. With Snowe there’s no hemming and hawing over barely perceptible differences in product design. Nothing too fussy. Nothing extraneous. Everything well made.
I recently had the chance to take a look at their entire collection and their white dinnerware struck a particular chord with me. It’s classic, elegant but still sturdy, and if you care about this sort of thing (and I do) it comes wrapped up in some of the nicest—and entirely recyclable—packaging I’ve seen. (No packing peanuts or bubble wrap in sight.)
To kick off the season of giving (and eating!) Snowe will be randomly selecting two RMTL winners to take home a 16-piece Dinnerware Setting. Each sets includes four place settings of dinner plate, salad plate, bowl, and mug. Like all of their dinnerware, the set is made in Portugal from Limoges porcelain imported from France.
