Lucketts Design House

So I wanted to take you on a little virtual tour of one of my favorite places to shop, the Lucketts Design House:

It's this old house with some outbuildings full of an ever-changing array of awesome furnishings & home accents. They change it seasonally & it's only open on weekends so it's always a treat. It's run as a specialty shop of Lucketts Antiques (the salvage yard/ antiques store I always rave about) which I'll be posting about soon. Here's the bridgeway into the Design House:

They have crazy things like this bird house just set up everywhere:

And this griffin guarding the entry:

This is the back entry into the house:

The colors are always changing. I took these pics right after Chrismas so it's all holiday stuff:
I love their kitchen (below). Howmuch fun are the stools?!
Cute b&w checkerboard floor:
This back entrance porch is one of my favorite rooms. I love the floors & pale blue paneling:

Here's a huge hutch in the kitchen that stands in the exact spot where I got my hutch! (I always have to check out what's there instead! :)

Here's the front entryway (below):

View in from another room:

Here are some of the rooms on the first floor:

Fun lamp:
Check out what they've done with this salvaged mantle"

Big, fun lantern:

Ok, this table is on my dream table list. It's reclaimed elm & is so rough & natural. LOVE IT. (Actually I'm very into the drum shade too)

I always love this room & want to buy the down-filled sofas.
Loving this bench & hide rug: (should I feel guilty??)
Quirky lion print= fun
The pretty Christmas mantle & flocked tree:

Such gorgeous old doors:

A console version (below) of my dining room table ;) ;)

I guess I'm into the cow hide right now because this is great to me: (More cowbell anyone??)

And you know I love decorative balls of all shapes & sizes! (These were some type of wood composite I think? Really light & hollow)

Cute snowmen:
Woven coffee table:

Here's an upstairs room. They've got it set up as this crazy dining room right now:

There are so many rooms!!

Here's another upstairs dining room:

How fun is the armoire in the background below? (Would be a great project to try!)

Here's one of the bedrooms. This one is usually full of darker colors:

These shell pieces below are AMAZING. (They always carry a few of these) The carvings are just so beautiful. I think if you had a room with simpler lines this could be a really beautiful contrast:
This bedroom is so light & airy:

They really do a great job squeezing in a ton of merchandise without it feeling too terribly cluttered:
Some great inspiration for older pieces:

Pretty bed. I'm really into the wall colors. Just so fresh & happy:

And you know how I feel about raw wood. I need one of these mirrors:

Or this mirror (below)... & the chair is great upholstered in a rough burlap-like linen:

More mirros & that lamp is really tall! It's just a great place to find pieces with some real character for a bargain:

Haha, yes, I definitely loved the feeling in this bedroom so here's one last picture:

Here's the bathroom where they have lots of great little gifts:

Here's the upstairs hallway with the ever-changing art wall:

More fun balls:

These tables (below) are great! (Haha when I was designing a line of furniture a couple of years ago I SO thought I made up this concept until I walked into a store & saw it! :) But I really do love it when designers takes a furniture piece that is traditionally wood & switches it to metal or vice versa.

Below, a little too curvey for me peronsally, but they still do such a beautiful job of displaying & there's really something for everyone:

Such unique pieces:

Here's this really cool bar. If my basement didn't need to be my living room, I'd totally go for this baby: (One day! ;)

And now back downstairs to one last room:
There's not much more I can say, but that if you are ever in the area, you have to stop by!!!! (And they also always have treats in the kitchen!! Good stuff too- like hot spinach & artichoke dip!!)

What a gorgeous shop Lauren. Pity I don't live near by (or even in the same hemisphere!), as I could find many things to buy in here. Thanks for all the fabulous photos!

I want to go shopping there! It could be dangerous, I saw so many things I liked. I love the hutch where yours used to be, is it gray? I have always liked lions so I was drawn to that art piece. Love the bedrooms, the raw wood and especially the dining room table. I am dying for one just like that! Great post!

Wow, what an amazing place!!!!

Wow. Do you have room in your home for one more. I so need to make a road trip to VA. That shop looks amazing. I want to move in and free snacks in the kitchen. yum. I love the dining table you have your eye on. Ah it's perfect. I love this style of decorating. I wish I could have different homes to decorate with all the different styles I love. Ah what a dream.

What is this about a furniture line you were thinking of doing? That's exciting. Even if it was just a thought.

Oh and I'm just like you. I always think of these fab ideas that I think no one has thought of and then weeks later I go into a store and poof someone has already thought of it. Let's just think of ourselves as trend forcasters.

Wow!! I can totally see why this is your favorite place to shop, that place is unreal!

I'm with Camile, I think I need to take a trip down to VA to check this place out for myself...roadtrip anyone?

LindsB said...

Whoops- I spelled Camila wrong- sorry about that :)

Lauren said...

It's in Lucketts, Virginia... a little winery town about an hour outside DC & there are so many great little places around there which I'll be posting on later :)

Oh my God, what a great shop! I had to google Lucketts but now that I know where it is, the next time I'm in DC, I am so going there. Thanks for sharing.
