At Ambiance now... KINFOLK MAGAZINE

What makes KINFOLK so special?  I spent a day figuring that out...

You know that brilliant quote from William Morris?
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”  
I try to put that adage into practice as much as possible in my life.  Kinfolk is of that rare and well-sought margin between the two; Both beautiful AND useful.  It's so much more than a magazine...  those flimsy, flashy disposable things... Kinfolk is a BOOKazine.  The sort you hang on to, dog-ear, and pass around to friends long after its shelf date has expired.  The Portland-based quarterly is a work of art, full of gorgeous photography, recipes, and genius entertaining tips for gatherings small and large.  I'm so hooked.


Kinfolk is a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. We recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just a wedding or once-a-year holiday extravaganza, that anchors our relationships and energizes us. We have come together to create Kinfolk as our collaborative way of advocating the natural approach to entertaining that we love.
Every element of Kinfolk—the features, photography, and general aesthetics—are consistent with the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.
