Amy: Enjoying the Dog Days of Summer

ENJOYING THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER


We recently caught up with Amy Hoban at her Venice Beach bungalow. She is the Creative Director of the home goods purveyor Parachute and a dear friend of the founder here at UBI-IND.

Amy's music tastes vary, but for a dinner party she likes a mix of emerging artists and old classics. Etta James to start, then some Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, and of course, Bowie.

 

 

 

 

“Summer dinner
parties should
i n c l u d e a n
intoxicating mix
o f s t y l e a n d
substance."

 

 

 

 

 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amy believes a
few essentials are
needed for a
great dinner
party: a signature
cocktail , and
great table
linens.

 

The evening’s menu has a Mediterranean influence: healthy and tasty. A huge pasta fan, Amy likes to incorporate something fun with grilled vegetables.
