‘Tis the season. No, not that season (although it is rapidly approaching). It’s wedding season in New England. If you’ll be watching loved ones exchange their vows in the coming weeks, why not consider breaking out of the Crate-and-Barrel box by giving the bride and groom something with New England roots?
1. A custom piece from Dunes and Duchess, the darlings of the New England design scene, is perfect for showing your love in major way. 2. No time to wait for bespoke? Dunes and Duchess’ items such as table lamps and candelabras are available at area retailers. 3. Ceramic fish from Grainger Pottery, in Sandwich, MA, are distinctive décor items that she’ll love for their charm and he’ll adore for their authenticity. 4 – 5. Industrial chic meets the beach in these pieces from metal artist Steve Swain. Swing by the Frying Pan Gallery in Wellfleet, MA and grab a ready-made wall sculpture (4) or commission a wall installation of Swain’s renowned “schoolies.” 6. Having a made-in-Maine breakfast basket from Stonewall Kitchen waiting for the bride and groom when they get home from their honeymoon will let them savor a sense of leisure for a few more precious hours. 7 – 8. Treated with a special glaze that is reminiscent of the inside of an oyster shell, handmade pieces from AE Ceramics are the perfect gifts to bring to a destination wedding at the beach. 9 – 10. With Dash & Albert and Pine Cone Hill now nationally known brands of luxury textiles, it’s easy to forget that the company behind them, Annie Selke, is Massachusetts born and bred. Lush bedding (9) and cozy throws (10) are two things newlyweds can never have too much of. 12. Since debuting his line of furnishings with Dowel Furniture Company, Boston Interior Designer Duncan Hughes has elevated his already exalted brand to iconic status. The Hayworth Bench is just one must-have piece in the curated selection.
