The Art of Being Home
There is an art to making a home, it is more than the architectural bones or style, more than a price tag or a label ... it is in the curation of the details and the sense of making a space one's own. Everything you bring into your home has a story, is well crafted and meaningful. Everything we want to share with you is crafted with care and respect for materials and for the eventual owner by artists and artisans who believe in their work.
The Milk House... off the beaten track and tucked into the countryside amidst the rolling hills of Vermont stands an early 20th Century Dairy Barn with an attached milk room where the freshly obtained milk would stand in tall metal cans, waiting to be picked for distribution. We imagine it being made into cheese and perhaps the rich cream made into fresh butter. Time have changed a bit since the Milk House was used in this manner. Today it is transformed into a small showroom housing no milk cans, but many items of luxe home decor suitable for barn-home, farmhouse, loft, townhouse, manse or chateau... we coined the hashtag #barnchateau to describe our style!
The Milk House is open several days a month to the public and is always open by appointment to the trade.
