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 […]

Can You Spot the Dunes and Duchess?

Can You Spot the Dunes and Duchess?

The subject line: “Tour a Preppy Cape Cod Family Home,” was what caught me. I saw it yesterday in my inbox from Dering Hall while I was on a photo shoot in Rhode Island, thinking that I would save that for evening viewing. But you know how that goes. You get home from being three […]

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 […]

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. Let us know which is your favorite! xoduchy

Scenes From High Point

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 […]

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 […]

The Game Table That Wasn’t But Is Now

Last month Dunes and I showed our Dunes and Duchess line at the New York gift show, which is now referred to as NYNow. We had a feeling that it might be a smaller show, given that it started on Superbowl Sunday and hotel rooms and flights were rumored to be scarce, so we split […]

Clearly Interesting

It’s the table with the clear top. It’s the table with a long name. It’s the Clear Top Drink Drop Cocktail Table. This is a table we introduced a few years ago, but that is still amazingly popular with people (we’re in the process of making about 20 of them for customers right now). The […]

Snapshot Archives

I opened up my IPhoto this morning and scanned through the numerous images that needed to be filed—Christmas 2012, birthdays, Easter, first snow, fall leaves—you know, all the harbingers of life marching on. Here are a few moments, some of which I don’t even remember. Looking at them reminds me I should get to the […]

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 […]

Pulling Double Duty

Dunes and I have day jobs you know. Can you imagine? Working all day and then becoming all designery and romantic at night not only to design, but to build and ship product? Pretty crazy, huh? It’s also pretty crazy that the one thing we’re trained to do so well—Dunes is an amazing professional photographer […]
