In my last post, I showed you travel sketches from my summer vacation to Savannah, GA. My other favorite thing to do on vacation is shop design.
24e. was my favorite stop this trip. It’s a family owned design company with roots in the southeast. I had never been in the shop before and I don’t know how I missed it last time. Located right on Broughton street, it’s a bi-level trove of interesting objects and furniture.
Many of the pieces are re-purposed utility items made into elegant design; such as this antique airplane door, now functioning as a cocktail table.
..or these ship lights that would make amazing sconces for a most interesting dinning room or hallway.
The nautical theme continues through the whole store but this isn’t a Ralph Lauren home goods rehash. Check out these old porthole windows.
24e. maintains a sense of “low country” heritage in their designs, so you’ll find oodles of maritime elements, military and Americana laced with nostalgia. You will also find a serious sense of laid back comfort which is key to style found deep in the heart of the south.
You’ll also find elements of nature such as driftwood re-purposed as candle holders. My personal favorite, and what I ended up taking home, was this metal cast deer skull. It reminded me of the Museum of the Hunt in Munich and the three ceramic animal head planters from our last trip to Savannah.
Frieze is another one of my favorite shop stops in Savannah for exotic home accents. I collect insect specimens and other natural curiosities. Here are a few of my favorite things.
If you’re looking for a fun and well curated vintage store, look no further than Civvies. This store used to be Primary Art Supplies back when I was a student at SCAD, now it’s a well curated vintage clothing, antiques and hand made home goods store.
I also found a well kept secret antique store including a gorgeous library of vintage books at V & J Duncan antiques.
I brought home these vintage lithograph fish illustrations as a house warming gift for my sister’s new home in Northern Wisconsin.
My trip is never complete without stopping at the college book store, Ex Libris to grab a few used books on current topics in art and design.
