This Is Love. The motto of More & Co.’s current collection rang especially true to me when I walked through the door. It’s plain to see that this is a special collection for the partners of this Portland-based creative studio – the goods they’ve personally fallen in love with since opening their storefront last year, the products in which they wholeheartedly believe and want to share with their loved ones… except they’re sharing it with anyone and everyone who drops into the shop. It does kind of feel as though you’ve walked into a friend’s home (your friend with the very best taste, that is), with the expectation that there is a remarkable story behind each item you see.
The handmade polka dot mug from which I’m currently drinking, the bright Jenny Pennywood textiles, the Maine-made ANK Ceramics, and the colorful Grimms wooden block sets – all fit perfectly together and convey that sense of happy, minimal, creative style that Michael and I have come to appreciate and admire from More & Co, having followed their blog and watched their branding projects for years.
You can always take a peek at the collection online, but if you have the time, I highly recommend stopping by the shop to see these objects in person – This Is Love is available through the end of May.
