This table top boutique offers a breath of fresh flair for hostesses on the hunt for something more unique and colorful than standard department store fare. Owner and Chappaqua resident Susan Maher, a former Crate & Barrel manager who did grad work in interior design, knows that presentation is key when it comes to entertaining. So she stocks this crisp, clean-looking space in an old Tudor with an enticing array of serving pieces and flat-, glass-, stem-, dinner-, and silverware from Juliska and Vietri and table linens from Le Jacquard Francais of France. And if you’re the guest? Pop that bottle of wine into a fun camouflage or paisley Scout gift bag or pick up an Annie Glass bowl as a hostess gift to ensure a return invite.
Best Tabletop Boutique (2012)
After Hillary’s gig traveling the globe concludes and she’s back charming visiting dignitaries and boldfaced names at Old House Lane, she’d do well to add to her to-do list a visit to this charming little tabletop boutique launched by her neighbor, Susan Maher. A former Crate & Barrel manager who studied interior design at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Maher appreciates the importance of presentation when it comes to entertaining. So she’s stocked this sweet space, conveniently located right across the street from the gourmet goodies-filled Chappaqua Village Market, with a carefully curated array of pieces much more unique and colorful than standard department-store fare. You and Hillary will find full collections of dinner- and glassware crafted in Portugal by Juliska and in Italy by Vietri, lovely table linens from Le Jacquard Français of France, and sparkling bowls and the like from Annieglass.
