Hello and Happy Spring Everyone!! I am so excited to share with you this stylish line of Made in America home furnishings by Dunes & Duchess. Most of the Dunes and Duchess furniture and lighting products are inspired from the past yet everything has a very fresh 21st century design sensibility which I love.
The design duo of Dunes -Michael Partenio and Duchess – Stacy Kunstel found inspiration for their designs from such items as a French antique turned style chandelier they discovered years ago… as you will see, wood turning and spindle style are design motifs emblematic of the Dunes & Duchess products. Other inspirations… the charming old hitching posts still seen around New England if you look really hard!
If you want to energize your home with some distinctive pieces then Dunes & Duchess is your resource! Take a look………..
Stacy and Micheal are totally involved in the production of their Made in the USA Dunes and Duchess product line. Utilizing a time honored form of woodworking called turning, all the individual pieces are turned in the Mid West using North American hardwood (Maple and Oak).
Then everything is shipped back to Connecticut where Stacy and Michael assemble and sand each item! Next, a crew of painters from Connecticut do their color applications and then Stacy and Micheal reconvene to do the polishing, adding felt bottoms, wiring, and packing! Even the packaging is made in Connecticut!
I hope you have been inspired by the stylish designs, refreshing colors and craftsmanship of these American made Dunes & Duchess products and also inspired by the American spirit of Stacy and Micheal in creating a beautiful line of home furnishings and producing everything right here in the USA!
