Owner Susan Piper is still “bringing far-away places closer to home,” but in a newly brightened space, where hand-carved, rosewood elephant bookends from India feel at home alongside a weathered-look bench crafted in Coastal Living style, and linen napkins made in Old Lyme, Connecticut, match up with a set of natural-material coasters crafted in Bali. Hand-pick fabric for a tablecloth, duvet, or curtains in breezy, reimagined batik; a Jonathan Adler-esque geometric print; or micro-leopard in muted chartreuse. Then, take home a chaise in a traditional tribal design updated in blood orange and punchy peony—or at least a Dash & Albert rug sample in contemporary citrus stripes or woven in everyday white and navy.
