Hello!  I have the fabulous duo Nathalie Gluckstein and Letizia Petti from NgLP designs on the blog today.  Thank you for sharing your time with us today. When I first saw your beautiful selections of table décor on Instagram, I had to stop and scroll. I’ve never seen such unique designs.

Tell me about yourselves and how you started NGLP designs?

NgLp Designs is the design team of Nathalie Gluckstein and Letizia Petti. Nathalie's brings her love for interior design, décor, skill and experience; owner of Nathalie Gluckstein Interiors.

Letizia brings her graphic design expertise, interior design, social media and digital marketing; owner of Letizia Petti Design Inc.

We came together for the love of table décor

In 2012, we launched our first line of bespoke placemats at The DelecTABLE Design Show held in Toronto, Canada.
This was our first opportunity to showcase a dining installation among other Toronto Designers.

The Thanksgiving holiday is coming up and I know you are based in Canada. What traditional or family dishes do you serve at your Thanksgiving table, and what is your favourite Thanksgiving dish?

Given our cultural backgrounds, Canadian, Israeli and Italian, as well as being influenced by our Neighbours to The South, our Thanksgiving menu changes from year to year.

To us, Thanksgiving is about coming back to the table, enjoying that time with those seated with us, giving thanks for our many blessings received over the year.

Decorating the Harvest Table is important to us — thoughtful design sets the tone and carries the overall experience in a different direction from year to year. It conveys that we value those gathering with us; that they are important and that is why we put in the extra effort. We do set our table with love, on many levels and our Design is reflected in our setting and throughout our dishes and display.

We posted this Thanksgiving message that resonates with us;

Wherever you gather at the table to give thanks, 
may you be surrounded with love, kindness and the warmth of togetherness.
Happy #thanksgiving from our table to yours

What is your favourite part of celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday?

Because Thanksgiving falls during the changing of the seasons, taking in all of Autumn's splendour is what both of our families enjoy most. Seeing beautifully decorated tables, enjoying long walks after a wonderful dinner,  the atmosphere of a warm fireplace, being surrounded by the warmth and joy of family and friends, the acceptance of another good year coming to an end; the fruits of our labour.

I saw that you posted a lovely pink Instagram post about an anti-bullying campaign that reads “In a world that you can be anything, be kind.” 
Can you tell me a little more about that?

Kindness is full-circle — when you treat people with respect and kindness, life has a way of returning in kind.

Our Instagram post was in support of Pink Shirt Day (Anti-Bullying Day) when people wear a pink shirt to symbolise taking a stand against bullying (in schools, communities and online). This idea originated in Canada 11 years ago when two Nova Scotia high school students, David Shepherd and Travis Price (Founder of Pink Day, Bullying Prevention Advocate) decided to take a stand against bullying in their own school.

We believe in supporting people who champion worthy causes. When we can, we participate in fundraisers which are near and dear to our hearts.

Where do you draw inspiration from?

From everyday living — our personal experiences, through travel, Mother Nature and her beautiful colours; from other talented designers, architecture — all fields in art + design. 

One of our favourite quotes:
"Creativity is the way I share my soul with the world." (Brené Brown) 
"Creative isn't the way I think, it's the way I like to live." ( Paul Sandip)

What do you feel is the most important aspect of working as a team of women entrepreneurs?

We recently posted to our Instagram account that which best represents our view of a team;

We are not A TEAM because we work together.
We are a team because we respect, 
trust and care for each other.

As women entrepreneurs, we are both working mothers who love what we do and enjoy the balance of work, play and lots of laughter and creativity.
We express our love for design via our own custom luxe table mats + accessories, all handcrafted in our metropolitan city of Toronto; utilizing modern faux skins and high-grade textiles that we source from all over the world.

What is your favourite memory of working in décor so far?

The launch of NgLp Designer Placemats at the Toronto DelecTABLE Design Show, where it all started.
That show connected us with media, subsequently being recognized and published in Style at Home MagazineStyle NEWS, December 2012 Entertainment issue.

Jessica Waks writes: “When it comes to holiday entertaining, add drama and polish to your table settings with texture, shape and patterns. Handmade placemats by NgLp Designs are embellished with grommets and other design details, are wipeable for easy cleanup.”
