Canada’s On Our Table began when Geoffrey Lilge was looking for cutting and charcuterie boards for his wife’s new restaurant. Intrigued by the elegant simplicity of a solid wood board, Lilge began making boards himself, and ultimately created a full line of kitchen and dining room objects made of wood. Click through the slideshow to see four new products to the Dwell Store, and one of the store’s best sellers, from On Our Table.
The Ray Long Board is characterized by its use of geometric shapes and angles. Designed to present bread, cheeses, charcuterie, and other small appetizers, the board features beveled edges that make it easy to pick it up off of the table. The top of the board is etched with a series of lines, which create a graphic visual statement of angles and intricate shapes.
The BlockBowl from On Our Table is a versatile product that features two distinctive surfaces. The flat, circular surface can be used as a cutting board or serving board for cheeses and charcuterie, while the other side features a lipped bowl that can be used to serve nuts, olives, and other snacks.
The Rail Box from On Our Table is a simple wall-mounted piece crafted from solid black walnut. The simple box makes it easy to display one frame or several, and art can be changed out easily. The Rail can also be used to hold postcards and unframed prints—it can even be used in a kitchen to display a recipe for easy reference.
This Bread Box from On Our Table is a substantial piece that almost looks like a large block of wood. A small hole—designed to fit one’s finger—lets you remove the lid, which has a similar profile to the box beneath. The roomy box is built to hold a large loaf of bread, but it can also be used to hold other kitchen items.
A Dwell Store best-seller, the Hole Slab Long Serving Board features an elongated oblong shape. Elegant and refined, the board makes a sculptural staging area for cheese, charcuterie, and other hors d’oeuvres. And, when not in use, the slab can be hung conveniently on a hook.
