Last week Margot discovered Matsunoya, a new, first-time-exhibited-in-the-US line at a NY design show, offering the type of humble, utilitarian goods that the Japanese do so well (and that we’re so obsessed with). Here’s how the company describes its vision: “We’re a wholesaler dealing in daily items made by local producers, focusing on a rustic, elegant taste, not mass produced and overtly artistic.” Here are some favorites from the line.
