Seredipity, We Love You!

A favorite word of ours has always been serendipity. It applies to our lives, how Dunes and I met and how so many people have come into our lives to help us create the Dunes and Duchess brand. So we were thrilled when Serendipity, the magazine, asked us if we’d like to be included in […]

Chappy Etagére Becomes a Star!

This is sort of how it went. Me: I think we should do an etagere and base it on our spindle designs. Dunes: Sure, what were you thinking? Me: Well, it would be about this tall and about this wide (stretching my arms out in both directions). Dunes: Great. What’s an etagere? I’m pretty sure […]

The White Sconce—Just Right

People sometimes think white can be boring when it comes to Dunes and Duchess pieces. Why choose white when there’s International Lifesaving Orange, No Scurvy Lemon or Commodore of the Yacht Blue? As you can see here, some times white is just right when you have a colorful or graphic wallpaper.

We love that it’s an opportunity not only to work with people we truly like, but also it’s a chance for people to see our products in a more homey […]

More on That Napoleon Fellow

Can’t you just see Napoleon having dinner in his tent under candlelight? He is the general who declared than an army travels on its stomach and therefore had chefs and cook wagons follow the troops to the battlefield. Fois gras after a fight anyone? For two years we’ve been entertaining the idea of doing a […]

While we’re already working on the next new thing, here’s what’s new and in production now. A few of you may have seen these at High Point, but there’s a number of […]

New For High Point—Chappy Coffee Table

New For High Point—Chappy Coffee Table

High Point Market, the world’s largest furniture market, begins next week (Friday, 04/04 actually). I’m going to be blatantly honest here. A month ago I would have said that we’ll be debuting two new products, but now it’s more like 10 or something. It’s just insane. Really, I don’t know how it all happens half […]
