Summers spent exploring the beaches and farm stands near her family’s Bridgehampton home are essential DNA to the ethos of New York-based designer Sarah Lederman. Celebrating her recent launch of SL & Co.—a curated platform highlighting uncommon wares from around the world—Luxe asked Lederman to share three favorite makers whose treasures are dually perfect for hostess gifts and entertaining at home.

Check out Sarah Lederman’s favorite makers



“Barcelona-born sisters Claudia and Clara Carulla use natural wax to create their refillable, paraffin-free candles. Each one comes in a mouth-blown Murano-glass vessel, which can be reused. Summer Garden is a fan favorite, inspired by summers spent in the Spanish countryside.”



“Australia-based husband-and-wife artist duo Lilla and Daniel Szczerba lovingly handcraft furnishings, decor objets and jewelry out of reclaimed Tasmanian timber. Regularly found fishing or beachcombing, the influence of their coastal lifestyle shines through their collection of carved scallop shells, which happen to make the perfect nut bowls or bedside catchalls.”



“California native Margot Janks is the consummate hostess, having launched homewares for brands like Tiffany & Co. prior to starting her own line of small- batch, hand-painted candles. Made in New York, her tapers add a unique element to any tabletop. We love the sweet custom floral design that Margot created exclusively for SL & Co.”
