Richard Lambertson and Suzanne Cassano have arrived. Truth be told, the journey was just a few miles- but with the larger, grander, new home for PRIVET HOUSE in New Preston, Ct - this "dynamic duo of the well accessorized home" have reason to celebrate!
There is no secret to the success of Privet House. The two talented professionals with big careers prior to joining forces, Richard designing luxury leather goods for his brand Lambertson Truex and now for Tiffany - Suzanne with her celebrated antique furniture destination -Vol. 1, they quickly built a following for this new venture. With Two Privet House locations, first in Warren, then in Greenwich, they created quite a buzz in Connecticut and beyond. They caused such a stir in fact, a little company called TARGET featured the brand in "The Shops at Target" series in 1,700 stores across the U.S. in 2012! Needless to say, Privet House had outgrown the original, intimate space in Warren. Luckily with the legacy of bucolic Connecticut, there just happened to be a 19th century General Store that needed a refresh not too far down a winding country road. Now, with higher ceilings, larger windows, and oh yes - triple the floor space (at least!) - Privet House is ready for it's next close up. **The store had a soft opening on April 18th, and I got my hands on just a few quick shots... stay tuned for some professional pics coming soon!**
New Preston is one of the most beautiful villages in Connecticut. With over a dozen boutiques, galleries, and places to eat, drink, and be merry (don't get too crazy.. it's WASP central!)- it is a PERFECT place to take a long weekend drive. Come for the day, but by all means, stay the night. There are bed and breakfast Inns in just about every hamlet. Splurge and stay at the storied Mayflower Inn in Washington, or keep it simple at the Sharon Country Inn. (Newly renovated, the Inn is drawing more and more weekend travellers to Sharon, one of the best kept secrets in Litchfield County). If you can't make it to Connecticut anytime soon, don't fret - the shop now has a fantastic web-store that has the charm and style that Privet House is known for. Click SHOP PRIVET HOUSE to see this perfectly curated collection now.
