GOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL!!! Congrats to the Mexican National Team for upsetting Germany in Game 1 of the 2018 World Cup. Said coach Osorio, "We were brave, and defended with our hearts." It would have been great to have the US and Canada in the mix. But short of that, it is great to see the underdog team in green play a beautiful, passionate game and come away with the win. Well done Mexico!

Our Cancun Coastal furniture line pays homage to the town that brought tourism to all of Mexico Would you believe it? In the Maya language, the word Cancun means “nest of snakes.” Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that prior to 1970, when the area began to be developed for tourism, Cancun had only 3 official residents.

It is easy to get carried away romanticizing the idea of the Mexican furniture artisan.  It is a powerful image to conjure the picture of the craftsman who has apprenticed under his elders, having learning to use the old-world tools and techniques. Now as a journeyman schooled in the authentic rustic, hacienda and other Mexico furniture traditions, the works have great utility, but also please the eye as artisanal works of art.   The truth of the matter? The truth of the matter is that there a lot of truth to this image for many o...

When you travel in Mexico, you come to realize not only that Mexico has many great artisans, but that Mexico overall is an artisan culture. Throughout this great country, you see how a large portion of the population fends for themselves as small businesses. They do this through their enterprise, their ingenuity, and many times above all through their skill and attention to craft.    For me, true craftsmanship is a blend of skill, knowledge and presence in the work. You see this in all kinds of artisanal craft, whether the expertis...
