Lostine

I came across Lostine about a year ago while I was on my first buying trip for the shop.  I fell for their rustic, handcrafted aesthetic long before I realized they were a Philadelphia based company.  The fact that one of the owners lives right around the corner from the shop only made me like them more!

Lostine designs and manufactures a variety of home furnishings, from rolling pins to coat racks to kitchen islands.  Although not everything is made locally, they do offer a number of pieces that proudly bear a “Made In America” label.  It isn’t a label that’s easy to find, so it’s definitely something we get really excited to discover.  Bonus points if it’s made in Pennsylvania.  We have  a few of their pieces in the shop…

poufs

I love a good pouf and these have been really popular for us!  But I’m sad to say that they are discontinued…hurry in, we’ve only got one left!

chair

The shape of this metal chair is fantastic and it’s so versatile.  It works great as a dining chair or throw a sheepskin over it and it becomes a comfy side chair.  And it’s really reasonably priced.

mirror

This is one of my favorite mirrors ever.  It’s so simple yet so incredibly beautiful, luxurious but not flashy.  Plus, they’re made right here in Philadelphia.  Can’t get better than that…

cuttingboards

…well, maybe you can.  Lostine makes the most beautiful cutting boards I’ve ever seen.  Honestly, I probably wouldn’t use them as cuttings boards, but rather as serving pieces for charcuterie or a cheese plate.  Not only are the boards made in Philadelphia, but the wood they’re made from is grown in Pennsylvania (well, at least the ones made of sycamore).  Can’t get more local than that.  And see these boards below…

prize

You’ll have a chance to take them home at our anniversary party on the 9th!  Lostine has very generously donated them for our raffle.  Isn’t that amazing?  The square board is made of black walnut and measures 9″x11″ while the rectangular is maple and is 20″x6″.  They photograph beautifully but are even better in person.

In case you don’t remember, HOME is celebrating turning a year old on November 9th.  We’re having a party and you’re all invited!  For more details and to RSVP, check this out.  We’re also using the opportunity to raise money for Philabundance, hence the raffle.  There will be lots of  great prizes, so you don’t want to miss out!
