The Scandinavian Home

Scandinavian design (as well as the lifestyle) continues to grow in popularity in the U.S., with many homes adopting the white-on-white palette and natural tones, functional furnishings with a streamlined look and products made with the heritage of lasting quality in mind.

Eleish Van Breems, made up of the design duo Rhonda Eleish and Edie van Breems, have opened a home shop in Westport, CT showcasing their clean aesthetic and love of all things Scandinavian.

With a successful background as antique dealers specializing in pieces from Sweden, these two ladies quickly moved into interior design and have built up a vast array of projects over their 20+ years in business. It was only natural that a shop was on the horizon.

Thus Eleish Van Breems Home was created to further expand their inventory of Scandinavian goods and to introduce contemporary work by varied designers working in everything from leather goods to pottery. The shop has quickly become a go-to place for beautiful products, both current and vintage. Their shop on Franklin Street (conveniently located directly across the street from the Metro North train stop) also sells furnishings such as couches, chairs and a variety of tables.

If you’re in need of interior design/décor services they are certainly ready to assist with that as well. With a comprehensive and enthusiastic knowledge of the Scandinavian design philosophy they are a wellspring of ideas and creativity for envisioning and executing a perfectly comfortable home environment that is compatible with the tenets of Scandinavia. They also emphasize that the philosophy easily incorporates touches of color, texture and even whimsy. Far from clinical, the Scandinavian-style home can be vibrant, warm and ever inviting.

If you’re looking to refresh your home or apartment or just want a fun, new decorative object to display, Eleish Van Breems Home is a wonderful place to visit, whether in person or online at their new website. With a super friendly staff and charming selections, you will definitely be refreshed and inspired by all that they offer.
