The story behind the design...
On a recent visit to Nashville, Julie and Chris dined at Lockeland Table--an independent, community restaurant that is located in Lockeland Springs in the heart of East Nashville. This particular restaurant is dedicated to fresh, local ingredients and working collaboratively with local purveyors. Chef Hal Holden-Bache and co-owner Kara Graham have created a commnity-based environment where a portion of the proceeds from their "community hour" is donated to the Lockeland Design Center--a neighborhood public school in the Metropoliltan Nashville Public Schools. Unlike typical happy hours, Community Hour invites children and families and offers a "kid friendly" menu where parents can enjoy hearty appetizers and their kids can enjoy mac and cheese!
After their visit, Julie and Chris reached out to us with their registry request and began designing their tableware based on the LT Community Line--which was originally designed by Chef Hal Holden-Bache. Their pieces and colors complement each other with satiny white, soft gray, and gray accents.
Julie and Chris have selected pieces that will remind them of their time in Nashville, bespoke tableware, and great food!
About Lockeland Table...
Lockeland Table Community Kitchen and Bar is nestled into the historic neighborhood of its namesake in East Nashville. Woven into its very fabric are elements of the community, history and camaraderie that make up its charm. From the reconstructed storefront to resemble the original 1930s H.G Hills dry goods store, to the center wall built by friends and family, to the comforting dishes paying tribute to Chef Hal’s upbringing, it all represents a piece of Lockeland Table’s foundation.
