Recommended Reading When Jay Sacher and Suzanne LaGasa asked if I’d write the foreword for their new book, How to Hang a Picture (And Other Essential Lessons for the Stylish Home), I was so flattered.

Anthology Magazine – Living with Substance and Style

Anthology Magazine – Living with Substance and Style I’m always excited to come across a new-to-me store that stocks home accessories and furnishings that I haven’t previously seen. That was the case with Fort Standard, a Brooklyn-based studio founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. They’ve collaborated with other brands (such as Roll & Hill, Areaware, and All-Clad), as well as design and make their own products that, as they put it on their site, “exemplify an understanding of materials and the balance between form and function.” Some of my favorite Fort Standard pieces are shown in the above photo, and you can see them in more detail below. Standard Ware is a collection of faceted bone china, made for 1882 and produced in England. Fort Standard’s cutting boards come in three shapes and in either American walnut or curly maple.
