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 you know, Instagram is always the best way to keep up with what’s new at Dunes and Duchess (we’re on there as @dunesandduchess). For the holidays we posted beautiful, clever and sometimes cheeky holiday greetings cooked up by our can’t-be-named graphic designer. Here’s the whole lot.

The White Sconce—Just Right

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 […]

A Perfect Sconce in a Perfect Moment

This is a photo of a room that has been used as our dining room at one time or another. Now it’s basically a dog room because it’s where the dogs lounge when we’re not at home. The room is pretty much a mess right now because our lives are consumed with work, but for […]
