A Norwegian Sensibility in Southern California

Sarah Lonsdale April 19, 2012

Christina Nickerson, a Norwegian based in LA, brings a Nordic sensibility to her online boutique, Olmay Home.

Nickerson works with local artisans and craftspeople to create a collection of inspiring products with a simple, well-crafted sensibility. Here are a few of her finds:

Above: Nickerson searched the city to find someone to create a simple line of pottery for her. Handcrafted by a studio potter in LA, the Stonewares collection is made to order, with prices ranging from $15 for a small dish to $60 for a decanter.

Above: Nickerson commissioned these Maple Cutting Boards from a local woodworker; prices range from $110 for a 14-inch board to $175 for the 18-inch size. We like her reminder to "always cut on one side and serve on the other."

Above: One of Nickerson's favorite finds: Monk Cloth Towels, made in downtown LA. The cloth shrinks slightly when washed, giving the towels a softer feel. Prices range from $19 to $98.50 depending on size. She uses them both in the bath and kitchen.
