White & Fig

Beautiful Details, Unique Goods, and Simple Gifting

 
Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
— Eleanor Roosevelt
Every year I give Leslie the same present I give everyone. A crisp twenty dollar bill, and every year she gets me something thoughtful and personal. It makes me furious.
— Ron Swanson
 

The Idea

By combining our love of gifting, rare finds, and beautiful details, White and Fig was born. 

We love to surround ourselves with beautiful objects. Sometimes we love to create and sometimes curate these collections. We believe that gifting should be an extension of that — but sometimes, those finds are the toughest to track down. We hope to make the search easier — and more satisfying — for you.

Whether it's a gift for a family member, friend, colleague, or yourself, we believe useful objects can be lovely and lovely objects can be useful. We look forward to introducing you to stand-alone items that extend beyond your favorite celebrations and into your daily home and life.
