A look at the pieces Tori is coveting most from our collection of singular and sophisticated finds.
Ties That Bind
Antique quilts continue to be a passion project of ours—and this latest batch just may be my favorite grouping yet. If I had to choose, I’d take home this vintage bow tie quilt. It combines all of my favorite things: rich indigo, graphic pattern, intricate hand stitching, and an especially cozy feel. Plus, knots and ties have long symbolized strength and loyalty. I can’t think of a better family heirloom than this.
A fresh crop of one-of-a-kind pillows made from vintage nankeen panels have arrived online and in our Block Island shop. A centuries-old Chinese dyeing technique, nankeen textiles were traditionally gifted to newly married couples and pregnant women as symbols of good luck, prosperity, and protection against evil. We've backed these fabrics with sturdy Belgian linen and added feather and down inserts. Mix and match to your heart's content.
Essentials for island living: hats, bags, towels, and a stylish place to store it all. Our 19th century New England sea chest makes an ideal perch for kicking off shoes and stashing outerwear. The best part? The big reveal on the inside: a glorious folk art painting of a four-masted schooner on the interior of the top. Bring this one home and keep it for generations.
A Place at the Table
This vintage set of china was originally commissioned by the U.S. Navy during the First and Second World Wars. Designed to withstand the high seas, it's made of sturdy restaurantware in crisp blue and white with a graphic anchor motif. This set would make a durable, hearty addition to any host's entertaining arsenal. I love that it's a simple maritime touch that doesn't feel kitschy.
