In addition to her local work, interior designer Calla Cane’s projects take her to California’s West Coast and Florida’s southern shores, with clients who trust her ability to channel seaside living through her unique lens. With sun-bleached white walls and upholstery, weathered wood, and an enthusiastic embrace of natural materials, she’s been able to execute airy spaces that have kept her eponymous design firm in high demand. And now, the Rowayton resident has set up an oasis in her own backyard.
With the opening of The Shop, Cane combines a showroom (where partner Prestige Cabinetry & Design is also on display), design studio, and retail location under one roof. “My vision for The Shop is to serve as a design hub that people will be inspired by,” says Cane, who has stocked her shelves with a selection of home and gifting accessories that reflect her aesthetic and celebrate artisan-made goods. No doubt, visitors will leave inspired, but chances are they’ll also leave with a few new styling pieces for themselves.
