Frederick Arndt Artworks Mid-Century Modern Napkin Holder
Never another flyaway napkin.
Fred Arndt has been impressing us with his intricate wood-cutting technique since we first launched his pieces on Food52. He's designed this napkin holder exclusively for us -- it reflects the clean lines of modern design and is small enough to carry outdoors, on a picnic, or to any table.To create such a delicate, elaborate pattern, blocks of walnut are precision-cut into sharp angles and lines -- the result is one of the most eye-catching pieces on our table.
