About Us

Distinctive Living

We believe in pursing life's simple pleasures and delicious moments.  We seek to find joy, beauty and authenticity with ease and grace. We are inspired by gorgeous design, nature, healthy food and amazing flavors.  Slowing down to gather with friends, family and loved ones in your kitchen, around a table, on a picnic blanket or by the camp fire is important.  We design all of our prints ourselves in Virginia and work with a partner in India to create each handmade item. 

 Please join us at the table.

Wishing You Joyful Days,
Carrie and Krister Allen

About Krister and Carrie Allen 

Our Story

They work with an amazing team at a small factory in India to design their own block-printed textile patterns for block-printed linen napkinstablecloths, and scarves.  

Carrie Earle Allen

Carrie Earle Allen is both co-owner and co-founder of August Table. August Table is Carrie’s life-long dream. She was inspired by spending summers at her grandparents’ property in Virginia, nestled next to the water of the Chesapeake Bay.  Her grandmother was the ultimate southern hostess and made everything from scratch, yet she always kept things simple and elegant. Carrie has always loved to gather friends and family to her table.

An entrepreneur by nature, Carrie led and launched many successful endeavors over the years from co-founding, with a Harvard professor, an innovative education program that she grew to 23 sites globally, to more recently as Managing Partner of CIC Captains of Innovation. She created a corporate innovation consulting firm, where she and her team coach fortune 500 companies to stay innovative, seek new technologies and businesses, and connect with startups globally.
