Bureau of Friends

I recently came across an amazing group called 'Bureau of Friends'. Founded by Cathy Bailey of Heath Ceramics, the fabulous Natalie Chanin of Alabama Chanin (this woman rocks!), and Julie Gilhart of Barneys , this is one cool group of 'friends'. Here is a blurb from their manifesto...

As entrepreneurs and artists, taste makers, and otherwise creatively engaged people, we stand together as the Bureau of Friends, tightly bound by shared meaning and purpose.

We share the belief that what we all want, is shifting. On the trend-spotters front, we’re told (and we know) that mindless consumption is giving way to discretion. Even “luxury” is suffering an identity crisis and searches for substance. Put simply: People want what they buy and how they spend time, to be worth it and they’re looking for objects and experiences that ring true.

I'd love to be a part of one of their "pow wows" one day!
