New in November, Thankful November 27 2014, 0 Comments

Thanksgiving is here...

...and we're so full of thanks. Six months since launch, we never could have predicted the profound enjoyment we would feel from interacting with all the wonderful clients, friends, designers, architects, artists, makers, and business partners we've met along the way. Building a business, this business, in this community, with "local roots and global branches" as the fine folks at SCAD would say, is the best decision we've ever made.

Womb Chair in Knoll Luxe Worth Mist at Palette and ParlorOne particularly fond memory we're thankful for is the first Womb Chair we sold this summer to a delightful couple in Durham. Married for more than 50 years, they used to import furniture directly from Copenhagen in the 1960s via an old tobacco trading route. They spoke with pride about their furniture that had stood the test of time, including an original Hans Wegner Credenza with roller shutter doors. The Womb they selected, adorned in the most beautiful upholstery called Worth Mist by Proenza Schouler for KnollLuxe Textiles, was a birthday gift from the husband to his lovely wife. We are so privileged to have met and befriended them.

Since then, we've had many more reasons to be thankful as our business has grown. We've recently added some great new products and beautiful artwork in our studio. Here's what's new, and what's in store:

Welcome to our blog! May 31 2014, 0 Comments

PALETTE & PARLOR is a tale of entrepreneurship, reinvention, and a growing love of great design.


Living in Copenhagen on an international assignment years ago, my husband and I were struck by the heritage, quality, craftsmanship, and elegant simplicity of Danish Design. We loved to walk around the city at night and see all the Danes having dinner on beautiful furniture by candlelight. Joining them at the table was even better.

Hygge (pronounced "hue-gah"), the Danish term for coziness and conviviality with friends and family, lived on for us as a daily aspiration long after returning to the US. For me it was also inextricably linked with Danish Design.
