Figuring it all out..
Sometimes, it takes a little while to figure out what works best for you, even if the answer seems to be staring you right in the face. Finding beautiful furniture and accessories then creating a space that speaks to our clients lifestyle is our job but we wondered if there was another outlet in which we could channel this passion? Then it hit us…why not use our showroom space as not only that but also as an interior design store. We have always used the space as a place to bring clients and show them furniture and accessories that we find on our trips, but by restocking and changing it around a bit we could also use it as a way to connect with our community and with people visiting our island. We began looking for partnerships that matched our aesthetic and design sense. The first choice was obvious, Mohr & McPherson is a stunning store in Boston filled with eclectic, one of a kind furniture and accessories brought back from owner Kevin McPherson’s trips all over the world. The rich leather chairs and one of a kind rugs were exactly what we wanted to bring to Vineyard design. We discovered luxurious bedding by Suchira Palit and her mother who live on Cape Cod and create beautiful hand blocked linens from India. We also made the decision to feature island artists and their work to help to bring their talents to a larger audience. We have original works of art by the talented Heidi Funk and Katherine Dilworth. We also feature movement inspired clothing by Gabriella Designs created out of cotton and bamboo that are not only lovely looking but also feel amazing on the skin.
The best part about this shift in how we use our showroom is that prices are kept reasonable so that everyone can enjoy a piece of what the island has to offer. We are always finding new things for the Studio. It has been a great way to bring the things that we find and love to a whole new audience!
