About Us

Our Mission

Restoration Oak presents a lifestyle brand. We believe that an eco-friendly, sustainable and healthy lifestyle promotes well-being and happiness. Every aspect of our brand focuses on these tenants and our goal is to bring you little bits of joy through our experiences and products.   

The concept behind this lifestyle brand is natural, healthy, sustainable products that add meaning and value to your life. We believe that DIY classes in which you get to see first hand how a particular piece comes to life in which you learn a new skill provides a critical insight into the world of artisan made and the importance of promoting a natural sustainable lifestyle.  We encourage you to expand your viewpoint and look to do things that help to sustain the planet, your health, and which promote a general sense of well-being and happiness. The  products that you purchase and add to your home, the food and drink that you buy, and the experiences that you have should all bring you elements of joy. We strongly believe that the RO lifestyle is one that will enhance and add value to your life and encourage you to come and experience it! 


The premise behind Restoration Oak's Artisan Boutique is the simple, yet profound concept that the true craftsmanship and quality workmanship of artisans around the world should be showcased, shared and appreciated by all. We work tirelessly to find these artisans, many of whom do not have an outlet in the United States and yet deserve to be recognized. It is a privilege to bring the work of these artisans to our customers and we will continue to find unique, one of a kind, home decor to share with you all. We hope you love the work as much as we do. 


The Crafty Spoon is our newest project, an Artisanal Experience where you can come and try beautifully crafted and uniquely flavored yogurts, infused waters, natural teas and more! Our drinks are enhanced with panela, a raw, organic sugar that is made conventionally by kettle-cooking sugarcane in small quantities. Gold, or golden-brown in color, Panela is a sustainably-made sweetener that Colombians, as well as those in other Latin American countries, harvest, produce and export as a sugar alternative. We prefer using Panela to white and brown sugar as it is a much healthier alternative.  We are excited to showcase the Crafty Spoon and have plans to implement other healthy and enjoyable drinks (including coffees) and treats in the future. 


Everything presented by RO is artisan made and tells the story of its maker. We source artisans and products from around the world. These are not mass produced items. Everything is unique including the food and drinks and everything exudes the love that its maker has spent countless hours preparing. Many of the products are the lifeblood of the artisans who rely on the income that they make to feed their families. We want you to learn about these artisans so that you can understand the workmanship and effort that goes into every single piece. You can find these products at the Woodshop at Restoration Oak.


 Finally, we plan to host numerous events and opportunities for you to come and experience what we have to offer. These events will be posted on our website and social media. Come and enjoy the experience with us, shop, sit down and have a coffee or yogurt or just say hello and don't forget to "Let Nature Be Your Canvas".
