Jonathan Glatt and Sara Ossana
Warren, Rhode Island
O&G began when jewelry designer Jonathan Glatt, along with interior architect and theatrical set designer, Sara Ossana, met in a welding for furniture class at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2003. Fast forward to 2009, when, after many explorations, Sara and Jonathan returned to their common passion for furniture and housewares to launch O&G.
All O&G designs exhibit the quality and attention to detail one would expect from a jeweler, the whimsy and eclecticism of a set designer, as well as the shared vision and style Sara and Jonathan have honed in their respective design fields.
Collaborating with local New England craftsman, O&G has created a unique line of sustainable, American made furnishings and accessories that make life more comfortable, and more beautiful.
Warren, Rhode Island-based O&G Studio tap right into the New England design sensibility to create pieces that are a mashup of traditional hand-crafting, rustic industrial forms, and bright modern colors.
Founders Jonathan Glatt and Sara Ossana collaborate with local craftsmen, including Warren Chair Works' Robert Barrow whose studio we visited last year, and whose 1760 Continuous Arm chair was the inspiration for a brightly colored O&G creation featured in the most recent issue of Martha Stewart Living.
O&G's other offerings include gorgeous desks made with antique iron legs, trivets made from recycled railroad tracks, and playful cut-and-powder-coated steel tables, all of which are American-made. Founded in 2009, the studio's current collection is small, but thoughtful (check out their website for the full line) and we're looking forward to seeing their future collaborations.
