About Privet House
A charming Connecticut shop in the idyllic town of New Preston, CT in the hills of Litchfield County, Privet House bills itself as an ‘An Emporium of Home Goods, Antiques and Curiosities’. Within a welcoming and visually striking environment, proprietors Richard Lambertson and Suzanne Cassano pride themselves on building an exquisitely curated collection of goods for the home ... and, just possibly, the soul. Antiques, vintage finds and decorative wares from the world over share the spotlight with Cire Trudon and Mad et Len perfumed candles and a well-edited assortment of lotions and potions. A unique collection of kitchen wares and an amazing assortment of baskets have become our calling card and makes Privet House a well-loved destination. Ditto for European table linens, towels from Turkey and Belgian glassware. Stacks upon stacks of vintage and out-of-print books add to the serendipity. The shop's devotees include an international roster of interior decorators, architects and fashion designers in addition to A-list celebrities. A major fan was Target, who was so smitten with the shop's individual viewpoint, uncommon mix and savvy vibe that they chose Privet House as one of only five retailers to collaborate on their premiere "The Shops At Target" initiative which debuted in Spring 2012. Please drop in if you are visiting our neck of the woods.
