Coleen & Company




Coleen & Company, located in Newport Beach, California, is a fantastic shop that sells an array of glamorous furniture and accessories. With a sharp eye for unusual pieces, designer Coleen Rider sells to some of the country's most prominent interior designers. Her store was also mentioned a few times in the June/July Domino article on designer Krista Ewart, who has incorporated some of Coleen's pieces into her own home (specifically the Blanc de Chine lamp in the bedroom and the painting in the living room).

In addition to antique and vintage pieces, Rider has also expanded into custom design. One of my favorite designs is the set of 3 hand-painted Chinoiserie panels. Seen below, these grisaille panels are just beautiful. Coleen is also planning to expand her custom offerings in the very near future with more stylish ideas. And just because you may not live near Coleen's shop, never fear- her inventory can be purchased on her website and shipped to your destination.

  4. Listen, what's that sound? I think it's the Italian tole table. It's calling my name.
