"A reminder that physical shops provide sensorial pleasure and are a key component of ‘place.’ The hunt pulls us into the world and that’s important.”

"A direct descendant of the Mid-Century retail legend Design Research, Placewares brings much the same vibrant color and exuberant simplicity to home goods."
Phillip Ferrato California Home + Design
"Placewares is a truly amazing and unique home and design store! They not only have the best home, art, and design selection I've seen anywhere, but they also provide the best customer service! I hope Placewares continues to thrive and grow so that I can continue shopping here for years to come!"

Place Is the Secret Sauce
"In Boston, that might mean modest and good-looking shelving for students. In Sea Ranch, it might mean beautiful yet rustic earthenware for the table. The needs and character of the locale have been the guiding forces (behind Placewares)."
Kenneth Caldwell Architecture + Design Journalist
Incredibly Sourced and Curated
"It's no exaggeration to say that Placewares is the best place to shop... Full of unique finds, it's impossible to walk out of here empty handed - and you won't want to! Incredibly sourced and curated, you can be sure that everything in the store has been vetted and you are going to want it all."
