Spring Debuts in High Point

Spring—new shoes, brighter colors and new pendant lamps. Isn’t that all anyone wants with a new season ahead? What about a whole new line or idea of pieces by Dunes and Duchess? As our friend and designer Trish Becker said when she saw our debuts, It’s an understandable departure from the norm. —Trish Becker What […]

What Have You Been Missing

First, a shout-out to all the amazing designers who came to see us last fall in High Point as we debuted our new products and our new space we shared with fabric and wall covering designer Cotton & Quill. What did you get by making the journey to North Carolina last October? You got to […]

Scenes From High Point

There will be more of these, but here are a few photos from High Point that show off some of the new pieces.       Today and tomorrow I’m in rehearsal and preparations to host the New England Design Hall of Fame in Boston. I’ve got to be prepared to stand and talk on […]

Skipping NYNow

Next week some of you will be headed to the New York gift show called NY Now, where Dunes and Duchess launched in August 2010. This year you won’t be seeing us though. The last three years the show has taken up what is normally family time. The show is later in the month than […]

Dunes and Duchess at Wesley Hall

This spring we were again invited to show our lighting at Wesley Hall’s High Point showroom. Wesley Hall is known for their gorgeous, made-in-the-USA furniture. 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 […]

What’s New?

What’s New?

You know us, there’s always something new. We can’t not create (that double negative reads: “We are in a constant state of creation.”). 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 […]

We’d Rather Be Royal Blue

We’d Rather Be Royal Blue

Some songs, like colors, are just meant to be. I knew from the fist few bars of “We’ll Never Be Royal” by Lourde that I loved the song. I still find myself walking around the dusty workshop muttering, “jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash,” even if we’ve got Bob Marley blaring in the […]

Wesley Hall and Dunes and Duchess

There’s nothing more exciting than to have someone love what you do. We were thrilled when Wesley Hall, one of the leading high-end manufacturers of beautiful fabric and furnishings asked us to be part of their High Point showroom. To see our pieces alongside their gorgeous upholstered pieces was such a treat. Here’s a little […]

Style-Spotted at High Point!

Style-Spotted at High Point!

It’s like a Golden Globe, a blue ribbon, a silver cup in terms of recognition. While showing at High Point Dunes and Duchess was recognized by the ultra-cool Style Spotters not once, but TWICE! They like us! They really like us! First came a shout-out from Lisa Ferguson of Decor Mentor. She loved the Chappy […]

High Point Market — The View at Dunes and Duchess

If you’ve been following the chatter on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram you know that this week we showed at High Point Market—the largest furniture market in the world—for the first time. If you weren’t able to make it, here’s how it looked. In the white booth we painted an eight-foot-wide stripe in our Commodore of […]
