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 […]

The White Sconce—Just Right

Perspective Magazine Loves Dunes and Duchess!

Posted on Nov 2, 2011 in Candelabra, Candlesticks

We loved flipping through the new Perspective New England magazine and seeing our International Lifesaving Orange candelabra and all the wonderful things the editors had to say about it! We actually blinked twice when we saw that it was more than two feet tall—OMGoodness it is! It’s huge! Check out the new issue of Perspective […]

When you hear you’re going to be in a magazine, the first reaction is always one of dizzying excitement. When you receive the magazine and your jaw actually hits the floor—well, that’s what happened when we saw our International Lifesaving Orange Candelabra on page 71 of the Fall 2011 of Luxe Magazine. Blown up to […]
