In New Canaan, DesignDot Marketplace Design (thedesigndot.com)—within the Summer House Boutique (thesummerhousect.com)—now offers a full-service design studio where you can create plans, choose from a variety of textiles in person, and find antiques from around the world. They even have local and New York City-based designers onsite every week to offer advice by appointment. Another new home gem: The Shop (stemsandco.com), by Stems + Co., in Rowayton. They offer chic lifestyle items and home goods (think: jewelry, women’s and children’s clothing, curated antiques, coffee table books and gifts) as well as breathtaking floral designs.
