I'm Aja Nicole Edmond, the "chief curator", and I've been a minimalist for most of my adult life. As I started to develop a strong aesthetic sensibility it created a conflict: how can I reconcile my views around simple living with my appreciation for beautiful, well-designed things?
Minimalism is a project born out of that tension. After recognizing that extreme minimalism is no better than extreme consumerism, I sought to define a more balanced perspective for myself and others.
This destination is an intentionally small labor of love run by myself and a few like-minded supporters. My desire is simply to have a thoughtful conversation around the objects we integrate into our lifestyle, and to support brands that design endearing goods worth owning.
I collaborate with a limited number of designers, brands and retailers via customized sponsored stories, affiliate programs, or wholesale agreements. Contact me to learn more.
