What, When, Where: Just White

December 12, 2011

Had your fill of holiday red and green? Then how about some ravishing winter white? On the hunt for design finds to feature in our upcoming Connecticut issue, I happened upon a slew of white-hot items, perfect to give or receive.

At Spruce Home & Garden‘s brand-new Westport location, all eyes are on the glamorous Beckett sofa by Bernhardt, and it’s easy to see why.

In Greenwich, a flurry of pale pieces can be found at Rinfret Home & Garden, including this Italianate grisaille artwork and elegantly carved bench.

Snow queens will delight at the sight of this tufted chaise, also at Rinfret.

To brighten up the season, add Barbara Barry’s Lotus floor lamp for Visual Comfort, available from DesignSourceCT, to your wish list.

For true antique white, pay a visit to Mandarin Collection of Westport, where this eighteenth-century Chinese incense pot is on display.

And if you’ve been very, very good, ask for a pair of pillows by Michelle Hatch. (Hint to Santa: you can find a sleighful of her sophisticated designs at Westport’s House of Clement.)

For more new items from these shops and others, stay tuned for the Winter 2012 issue of New England Home’s Connecticut, coming in January.
