A Cut Above: Serving Pieces with a Star Following

January 13, 2014

On a recent trip to Garde in LA (a must-stop on any design lover’s list), I admired a line of chunky cutting boards made by The Wooden Palate, and discovered via the Huffington Post that Jennifer Aniston, Ringo Starr, and Cameron Diaz all own one. Ryan Silverman (he creates wood floor and interiors for Hollywood’s elite) and Eileen O’Dea (a former cooking teacher turned wood worker) use reclaimed, recycled, and sustainably harvested North American wood for the creation of their cutting boards and other serving pieces, all meticulously fabricated in their LA studio.
