- the story
At Your Service
When a career change relocated Stacy Borocz from Atlanta to Budapest, the former Atlanta-based merchandise manager didn't realize the treasured opportunity she'd soon discover at the footsteps of her new home.
Stacy's passion for one-off discoveries and her desire to explore her new environs inspired her to seek out unusual and often overlooked locations, such as flea markets, shuttered factories, and military bases. She eagerly rummaged through each place for its hidden relics and delved deep into her ancient city's rich history by repurposing the antiquated artifacts she uncovered.
Like Stacy's other finds, this handsome tapas plank carries with it the thoughtfulness and craftsmanship of its original makers. The sturdy slabs of reclaimed timber salvaged from old buildings throughout Europe are hand-sanded and inset with lightwood and brick trivets. The surrounding wood is finished with natural beeswax or mineral oils for a smooth, splinter-free finish.
Combining functionality and old-world style, this rustic server adds a touch of medieval romance to the contemporary table. Its heat-proof surface allows you to serve piping hot appetizers, dips, or your favorite party pairings with ease and élan. Made in Hungary.

- the maker
Stacy Borocz spends her days traveling throughout Europe in search of salvageable objects, such as vintage glass and wooden beams that she can sustainably repurpose and import to the U.S.
Stacy and her team attend local markets and explore old homes, barns and warehouses to find architectural elements that can be recast as useful housewares. For example, 19th century timber salvaged from abandoned buildings is honed into thick, rustic trivets that are hand-finished with natural beeswax and mineral oils.
No two pieces are exactly alike, and each has a history all its own. collection
