From Andrea Wendel: Ahhh…. The Aspen Lifestyle is filled with loads of outdoor activities and a huge appreciation of nature and it’s magnificence. Meals, whether it is a picnic by the river, backyard summer parties under the star filled sky or a cozy, indoor, dinner while the snow falls, is the activity that brings it all together. Living in Aspen 20+ years has given me the best memories a girl could ask for. Most of which include being on a horse or a hike, kayaking, skiing or snowshoeing. Over dinner the best parts of the day are shared. We are a casual group with fine taste buds and eclectic way in which we live. As a sculptor as well as a product designer and builder, it has been a joy to create home accent furniture not only for designers and clients in Aspen, but across the country. My accent furniture line, Andi-Le starts with large components and that are handcrafted and embellished specifically for each client. The aesthetic lies in mixing and matching textures and inlayed materials. The end result is a fine quality piece of art with function Andi-Le Aspen produces home accents and accessories that I have the need to create. An Andi-Le Aspen, NOT SO Lazy Susan, brings ease to entertaining and was the solution to a few “issues” of dinner party hosts everywhere. In this issue you will see easy solutions for serving all your meals and hosting parties, along with recipes to fuel your own ideas. I hope you love these fresh, contemporary designs. Each is handcrafted, with a global modern aesthetic, inspired by my experiences and eye. They are pieces of art with a fantastic function. All Andi-Le Aspen products are one of its kind or of a limited production and created in Aspen, Colorado. All products available at or visit us Enjoy and “Live Creatively” xx Andrea

Dinner Parties & Family Dinners Issue #2 Solved ! Aspenites and people all over the world people are exposed to more experiences and have developed very subjective likes and dislikes. Even in a small family! Back in the “olden” days, we ate what was on our plate. Not so much any more. Dinner parties (especially with allergies and vegans) become a bit more challenging. I started cooking very simple entrees, steak, chicken, and fish, even tofu. Then I created toppings, condiments, and sauces as compliments. Guests could make their dish as spicy or saucy as they like, Onions? No Onions! Everyone is happy! The small dishes were scattered and messy. Where’s the spicy mustard? Who has the caramelized onions? And that’s where the Lazy Susan came back into play. After searching for Lazy Susans that didn’t look like my mother’s or one that wasn’t brown. I headed into the studio. And viola! Andi-Le Aspen’s NOT SO Lazy Susans.
