Jason and Dani, are the duo behind JAYD, a brand that has come to life quite organically through their passion for unique furniture and decor within their own home.
A few years ago they bought their first “fixer-upper” home where they got to properly experiment with design, decor and furnishings.
"There is something quite wonderful that happens when you create something that is both literally and figuratively made with your blood, sweat, tears and most importantly LOVE."
Growing up in his grandfather's workshop, Jay naturally acquired a passion and talent for all things DIY, more specifically woodworking. He learnt craftsmanship and skill from both his gramps and dad and is the magician behind Dani's wild ideas (read demands).
They realised that there is a higher appreciation for custom designed decor, and it is one of the main reasons why Dani began this journey with JAYD. She believes that, they as a couple, have something to share with you within the small business and shop-local platform.
Finding beautifully made, artisanal type furnishings that compliment your unique style is what makes the experience so wonderful.
"JAYD is a dream come true, one that has been ten years in the making and how exciting to be able to share that within our community. "
WHY I LOVE THEM
I have been friends with Jason for about ten years and was over the moon when he met my now taller bestie Dani.
If someone had told us 5 years ago that we would be working for ourselves as Girl Bosses in our Local Community we probably would have rolled our eyes before ordering a large cappuccino or an even larger glass of wine.
To watch my bestie pursue a dream and be at her side along the way is honestly such a blessing. From the initial JAYD brainstorming sessions to behind the scenes sneak peeks of the website build, as well as, seeing product shoot images come together, it's been the most amazing thing to watch this brand develop.
Knowing the two people that founded JAYD as well as I do, makes it impossible for me not to love who they are and the way they approach this passion.
Impeccable taste, passionate workmanship and a love for creating together is what this pair is about.
I have a feeling you are going to love them too.
THIS MONTHS CURATIONS
SAGE TRINKET NESTING BOWL
ON MY WISHLIST
The most beautiful set of nesting bowls, for all your wonderful trinkets and things.
The perfect addition when giving jewels as a gift. I love having small trinket bowls on my dresser in order to store my earrings and other daily pretties.
They are made from solid oak, and are hand turned so that each bowl has a shallow and delicate slope.
Cork lines the underside of each bowl to add a bit of character and to protect your surfaces.
These are, quite frankly, perfection.
Sizes sold separately:
Small 80mm diameter
Medium 110mm diameter
Large 150mm diameter
ON MY WISHLIST
Elegant and ethereal, the Lana hanger is ready to make your cascading plant dreams come true!
I am dying to hang two of these on my verandah with a jasmine plant in each.
Plants wall to wall is the dream!
If not on my verandah, I can imagine these creating a grand entrance at my front door. I've got some decisions to make.
Purchase includes hanger only
SAVANNA NESTING TRAY
ON MY WISHLIST
The Savanna trays have an elongated oval, "pill" shape and they sit gracefully together as a set.
They are the perfect bedside table, dressing table, dining table or side table companion. Use them to nest your precious jewels, your perfumes or even tea light candles at the centre of your dinner table.
I am eyeing one out for our spare room. It's an ideal place for guests to place their valuables when they come to stay. When you aren't in your familiar space, a place to put your treasures where they can't get lost or be forgotten is important!
I love interesting things that add a little extra comfort for our friends and family.
Made from solid oak.
Small - 250mm in length
Large - 450mm in length
