Meet Casa&Co., a handmade line that makes a case for pillow talk. Made in Wisconsin by Ashley Gries, each piece is designed to be a modern heirloom backed by an attention to colors, finishes, and materials. Here’s Casa&Co.’s #LoveSTORY…
WHAT IS THE STORY OF THE BEST DATE YOU’VE BEEN ON?
It’s cheesy, but here goes: On my (then) boyfriend and I’s 4th anniversary I had to work at my job as a delivery driver for a florist. My last delivery was to a super-cryptic location. After making a scene trying to figure out who the flowers were for, I headed for the door where my boyfriend had been watching me make a fool of myself. After I realized (finally) that the flowers were for me, we went to dinner. On the way home we stopped to walk through the snow. He proposed to me then and there. My immediate response was, and I kid you not, “Are you sh***ing me?” I know, classy – right?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WHAT YOU MAKE?
I love being able to make something that will hopefully put a smile on someone’s face or otherwise encourage them. The fact that I get to work in my pajamas is a pretty good perk too.
WHO IS YOUR SECRET MAKER CRUSH?
Right now I’m crushing on HedgeHouse – a furniture designer with gorgeous hand-built pieces in walnut and natural finishes. I’ve been eying their walnut bed frame for longer than I should admit. Drool.
