Privet House

An Emporium of Home Goods, Antiques and Curiosities

A charming Connecticut shop in the idyllic town of New Preston in the hills of Litchfield County, Privet House bills itself as ‘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 garden...and, just possibly, the soul.

Antiques, vintage finds and decorative wares from the world over share the spotlight with Cire Trudon perfumed candles and Santa Maria Novella bath and body products.  A unique collection of kitchen, housekeeping and personal care brushes imported from Germany, have become our calling card and makes Privet House a well-loved destination.  Ditto for Hotel Silver, European and Japanese 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.
