fast-and-loose dining table via the selby

Our two favorite takeaways from The Selby’s latest photo story of Charlotte Rust, stylist and co-owner of vintage store Fast and Loose in Auckland, New Zealand: her funky “tattooed” wooden table that invites friends to carve it + the candles stuck with melted wax right onto the table, pooling as they burn down to nothing.

The candles are elemental and beautiful…

…the table becomes a record of memories of gatherings and dinners (plus provides the illicit thrill of carving your initials or WHATEVER into a normally off-limits surface)…
