When I first moved to Rhode Island from NYC, I thought of this state as having a quaint little creative community that just added just that bit of culture I needed to feel ok leaving the City. In the years that followed, I discovered more and more the depth of amazing talent and vision in this small but mighty state! I love to source as much as I can locally for projects, and here are a few who make that so easy:
O & G Studio – Based in Warren, RI, this team makes stunning furniture, lighting, and hardware that feels both classic and modern. These are handcrafted pieces that will last many lifetimes and will be forever chic.
Studio Endo – Studio Endo creates modern, sculptural LED light fixtures in their Providence, RI Studio. The striking, simple geometry of these fixtures are the perfect minimal jewelry for luxurious modern spaces.
Shore Soap Co – For gifts and finishing décor touches, I love Shore Soap Company out of Newport, RI. They have an amazing line of all natural bath and body products (plus the candles which are my fave!) that come in the perfect array of coastal-inspired scents like Atlantic, Warm Sand, and Changing Tide. Super light and fresh!
I’m still continually discovering new and fantastic artisans and creators here, and grateful to work amongst this quietly powerful Rhode Island creative force.
