Kinfolk is a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. We recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just a wedding or once-a-year holiday extravaganza, that anchors our relationships and energizes us. We have come together to create Kinfolk as our collaborative way of advocating the natural approach to entertaining that we love.
Every element of Kinfolk the features, photography, and general aestheticsare consistent with the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.

Kinfolk Issue Nineteen: The spring edition of Kinfolk explores our relationship with adrenaline and its vital contribution to our quality of life. After all, finding joy in knuckle-whitening moments can be enlivening, not immobilizing. Whether it’s through leaping out of a plane at 14,000 feet or cutting off all our hair, or by cliff-diving into the sea or getting a tattoo, making friends with fear opens us up to a flurry of exhilaration. If we aspire to live life instead of just watch it, our days won’t be safe or stilted: The best stories start with the most unexpected moments, and these experiences normally come from confronting our comfort zones instead of taking the easy, expected or well-lit route.
