  • The Floral Antiquity Tray was Featured in The Wall Street Journal

    Posted on December 5, 2016

     

    Ten Thousand Villages was included in The Wall Street Journal. In “The Off Duty Holiday Gift Guide 50 Nostalgic Finds,” the Floral Antiquity Tray is included in a roundup of products. The editor shares that while Williams Morris may never have seen the Peruvian jungle, which artisan Edmundo Contreras cites as inspiration for the stylized pattern of his Floral Antiquity Tray, the late-19th-century Arts and Crafts movement seems alive in this tray. The article mentions that the tray is designed with reverse-painted glass, metallic gold and medium-density fiberboard. The editor also shares how the MDF is less liable to warp than wood, so the hand-painted glass won’t crack under the stress of entertaining. Readers are directed to Ten Thousand Village’s website.

    The Wall Street Journal is considered the most widely-read periodical in the nation's business and investment community. Information in the paper is also distributed to many Dow Jones outlets, including news service and specialized financial and commodity reports. The Off Duty section runs each weekend and features the Journal's lifestyle content.
