Beaver & Venturi
As lovers of the Italian table and the convivial experiences that come with fabulously long gatherings at our home and around the tables of others in Puglia, it seems fitting for our business to grow and expand with our lives. Over the last year, Olivewood has made some big changes and is now being renamed, “Beaver & Venturi."
Representing the American half of this team, I have always been a lover of hunting for and finding vintage items in the midwestern areas of the U.S., a past-time which began during my teenage years in Illinois, and then later when moving to Italy, finding incredible Italian housewares, especially for the kitchen and table. I am also a lover of all things historical, with a keen eye for elegant materials and smart design. Arranging a table for various occasions and seeing how it unfolds like a still-life after time spent around it, is especially pleasing.
We have compiled a wish list of beautiful artisanal Italian goods we hope to offer eventually, as well as an occasional treasure from the past. With Beaver & Venturi you will find American and Italian goods carefully sourced and curated for you, your home and stylish table, ranging from glassware, ceramics, linens and possibly a few Italian wearable accessories. Beaver & Venturi is a blending of our American and Italian experiences. At present our cutting boards are on hold, but we might offer them sometime again in the future.
