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 […]

NY Now—It’s All Coming Together

Posted on Feb 3, 2017 in Dunes and Duchess Furniture, Events, News, NYIGF, Process

This is what our space at NY Now looked like at 11:30 last night. Over the next two days we’ll fill it with two new collections (I can’t believe we did TWO collections! Who does that?) and hope to greet you during our stay. Where: Javits Center on the West Side in NYC; W. 34th […]

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 […]

When Harrod’s Comes Calling

When Harrod’s Comes Calling

When Harrod’s—THE shopping experience of London—comes calling you say, “Yes.” In this case it was for a special event right before the holidays and they wanted to use our iconic candelabras to create a bed of dreams. That’s exactly what the results were. Dreamy. Conceived of and designed by the brilliant minds behind the Harrod’s […]

Setting Up in Atlanta

Setting Up in Atlanta

We’ve been working on our new Atlanta Showroom in HD Home for the past few days, preparing for our opening on Thursday. We’re teaming with Taylor Burke Home and Cotton and Quill to create a one-stop destination for lighting, furniture and fabric. It doesn’t look like much now, but here’s our start. Don’t forget that […]

The Best of Our Holiday Cards!

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. 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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
