Dylan Kendall’s Efeet Collection

Looking for a fabulously funky hostess gift or a cheerful way to add joy to your home? Dylan Kendall’s new line of footed home accessories, the Efeet Collection, takes a stand against boring dishware. Turning traditional dishware on its head, the Efeet Collection proves that functional can be fun with footed bowls, footed mugs and a bathroom set that takes the user on an imaginative, joy-filled journey where growing up is optional. Designer and social entrepreneur, Dylan Kendall bursts onto the home décor market with her whimsical and joyful launch line of tabletop ware, The Efeet Collection, designed for her eponymous new home accessories company, Dylan Kendall.

This one-of-a-kind collection, the first one ever with feet, was designed by Dylan Kendall, an original artist, who describes herself as “a studio artist turned social entrepreneur turned designer.” The collection represents a perfect mixture of cute-plus-elegant and strikes a perfect balance between the two, without leaning too much on either side.

The Efeet Collection invites users to walk through the Looking Glass. Bowls, coffee sets, vases and other dishware are whimsically perched on human feet, coming alive on tables and counters. The Efeet Bathroom Collection eschews human feet for the four paws found on a clawfoot bath tub and the toothbrush cup reminds one to brush her teeth with a row of teeth lining the cup’s edge.

The Efeet Collection soft-launched in Fall of 2011 to rave reviews, selling out immediately after placement on leading design-influencer sites Beautiful Life, Design Milk and Swiss Miss. After several months reorganizing to meet demand, the Efeet Collection returned to market Fall of 2012. Spring 2013 welcomed new colors to the warmly received line. Fall 2013 will  pay homage to four-footed friends with a line of  four pawed pet bowls in five different sizes  – 9- and 7-inches for dogs and 6-, 5- and 4-inches for cats. Lead-free with a slight lift for easy swallowing, better eating posture and overall cleanliness, these bowls will bring a little fun to “it’s time to feed the dog.”

All products are dishwasher and microwave safe. And for those who love an earth friendly and charitable twist, Dylan Kendall takes care of that as well! Leadership at Dylan Kendall believes we are all a part of making the world habitable and humane. They strive to use recycled materials in all of their packaging and to have a voice in the community by partnering with nonprofit organizations and engaging young people in the company’s efforts. Dylan Kendall also supports Hollywood Arts – an organization founded by Dylan Kendall and the only educational facility in the nation to provide an arts, music and performance-based education to the over-18 emancipated foster care and homeless youth population.
