Nantucket is home to AMAZING design. From fashion to home furnishings, fine art, to fun jewelry, ACK has a knack for attracting the talented and visionary. This season I have been surprised and delighted by a number of new shops. My insatiable appetite for new design accents is so easily fed on this island it’s intoxicating.
I visited a tiny spit of a shack on South Wharf called Joey Wolffer. A little bit of everything, the stores clothing was unusual and beautiful, jewelry, just right, and accessories – so fun, and trendy. What really caught my eye were the pillows.
Esme Yozell, Retail Marketing Manager shared with me that her Mom Abby is the designer of the pillows they have showcased in the store. A lover of France – her Choix Home brand is metallic fabulousness. Inspired by international travel, and vintage baubles and materials, the pieces are unique, beautiful, and inspired.
While Choix has more than pillows, its the pillows that speak to me. From Camo, to fabulous nubby textiles, sequins to metallic surfaces, fringe and a fair amount of statements that seem timely, and emphatic.
Pineapple appliques, Fun words and non-sensicals like HA! Bossy! Never! – the variety of interpretation that can be associated with them is fantastic.
I have a thing for sequins – i have an even bigger thing for fringe. Oh boy – ridiculous. I love that Abby has embarked on this business venture, has tied her daughter Esme into the process as she manages this Nantucket store, and brings her love of travel home to us all.
