New York Design Studio Fredericks & Mae Celebrate the Art of Gift Giving With Their Playful Creations

Their showstopping cutting boards are a cut above the rest.

There's an art to gift giving. It's not easy finding the perfect present that's special and that your loved one can keep for years to come. But there are certainly ways in which you can increase your odds of success, and that's where New York-based design studio Fredericks & Mae enters the picture.

Roommates Giovi Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks Cohen met in college and started creating art in their Brooklyn living room. They connected over a mutual love of materials and would make things together as a way of hanging out. Their ever-growing studio creates joy-sparking homewares that marry practicality with pizzazz to celebrate the art of the gift and how gift-giving fosters connection.

"We are committed to bringing objects into the world that prompt wide eyes, inexplicable delight, and full body chills." From whimsical candle holders to sophisticated games, each piece conceived by the designers has involved plenty of research and reflects their interest in producing objet d'art and homewares that are part of a larger historical and cultural context.

The Bed Threads team love entertaining and one of our favourite creations by Fredericks & Mae is their eye-catching cutting boards. These delightful boards make for a stunning foundation for serving everything from the ultimate cheese platter to indulgent desserts. A selection of these colourful creations is available at Bed Threads to help take your at-home dining up a notch. They also make for a timeless gift for anyone who loves entertaining or has an appreciation for thoughtful design that mixes form and function.

Below, we chat with the design duo about their creative process and showcase their fabulous cutting boards.
