Khoudari with son, Benji. “After a full day surfing,” she says, “we enjoy opening our home to friends and family for casual dinners by the pool, fresh summer beverages, and delicious fireside meals. We also host formal gatherings. Our new tabletop collection lends itself to both styles of parties.”  Photography by Claiborne Swanson Frank
