Darling Dunes and Dutchess


Girlies, are you looking for the perfect design element to complete your space? Look no further than the Dunes and Dutchess line of beautiful interior decor, lighting and furniture.

Years ago, Mimi picked up a pair of the 4 Arm Candelabra Classique in Turquoise, then moved on to two 4 arm Candelabra Lamps in Swedish Gray, and is presently looking for a reason to buy something in the Palm Beach, Darling! These gorgeous solid maple pieces are made in the U.S.A., hand finished and clearly made with an eye for design and detail as well as fun and love.

The founders and creators of these lovely products are a husband and wife team, Stacey Kunstel and Michael Partenio. Stacey is quoted as saying, “A boy makes you a candelabra so you’ll fall in love with him. You do and then found a company making the most romantic lighting and furnishings.”

Inspired by coastal New England traditions, the pieces are made from solid maple, slickly updated with a coat of lacquer. The pieces are whimsical and strong. Each piece is signed and dated on the bottom. There are about 16 colors and finishes offered, included a pigmented beeswax, and they also offer custom colors. 

There is a really romantic quality to the products and they are the perfect element for any space. They are constantly expanding their product line and everything is gorgeous! Check out their site and splurge for a one of a kind item. Here are Mimi’s favorites…for now.
