On Our Table
When a chef, a designer and a wood manufacturer team up to create accessories for the kitchen and dining room, you know good things are to come. The trio, Cindy Lazarenko (chef), Geoffrey Lilge (designer) and Christopher Brandt (wood manufacturer), formed On Our Table, a St. Albert, Alberta based design outfit that crafts beautiful wooden boards, butcher blocks and accessories out of walnut wood.
The company got its start by making serving boards for Cindy’s restaurant. “We couldn’t find any that we liked, so I designed and made some” says Geoffrey, Cindy’s husband. For example, their Chisel board has an angled corner that was created to provide restaurant servers with the optimal wrist angle when presenting the board to the diner.

In terms of new products, Geoffrey continues to fill the design pipeline with objects that satisfy a need. “This year we will be doing more collaborations, releasing furniture (fall 2014) and a cookbook; that will be enough.”
