Behind the Scenes: the Making of our Lauhala Collection

The exclusive Lauahla collection is a celebration of contrasts. A partnership between Nest Studio designer Jessica Davis and Hilo, Hawaii-based jewelry brand Ku & Moe, this collection highlights fiber artisan Iliahi Anthony's life-learned skills of braiding and weaving in a thoroughly modern way. Each item in the collection is made-to-order and is one of a kind as a result of the raw materials and natural environments the screwpine leaf is sourced from. This collection’s striking simplicity makes it ideal for classic and contemporary spaces.  Using a hardware base from our Mod series, Iliahi weaves the Hawaiian sourced screwpine leaf onto each...

Lauren's Six Picks

Looking Back on a Favorite Install

Looking Back on a Favorite Install

We've seen so many great installs of our hardware over the years, but a special project that often comes to mind is one from our own Jessica Burne Davis (yes, there are two Jess Davises here at Nest...more on that here.) Jess, or "JB", as our Nest family calls her, is our Director of Sales & Operations. In early 2015 she did a DIY kitchen "makeover", which included a cabinet refresh with our Facet-01 pulls and Facet-02 knobs. Ultimately, in 2016, Jess took on a full-blown home renovation, again adorning her kitchen, pantry, & office with our hardware. If you've been a longtime follower, you might remember her blogging about it. Either way, walk with... Read more
